Akin Gump Pro Bono Scholars

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Feb 11, 2015 12:42 am

Anybody apply to this and hear anything? If so, if you could post your very general stats/office you applied to, thought we could have a thread going. Didn't see any from this year, but there are some from past years here. Trying to get a sense of how many apply, how many interview, how many get a callback.

My sense from past threads and from their information is the deadline was last week, many people interview, each office has 5-10 callbacks for 1-4 positions.

Surprised at the lack of comments here given past threads, so just doing a quick bump

I applied a couple days ago. I met with Steve Schulman when he was here at my school and I thought it went well, but waiting to see if anything comes of it. Really keeping my fingers crossed. How long after you submitted your app did you hear back about the interview?
