Yeah, in the "Interview Dates" column it says Scheduled for July 25th and it also shows up in the "Scheduled Interviews" tab at the top.

Did anyone else get new interviews through lottery?

If you got the firm via lottery it will show up as "scheduled for the 25th" despite a "not invited" message in the adjacent column.

if there are still 2L spots left (it doesn't say 0) does that mean lottery selections are still coming out? or are they all generally released at the same time/we're out of luck if we didn't get anything yet?

I'm assuming those are the number of spots open for people who were selected as "alternates."

Did we get information on the interview location?

I got a schedule with room#s but don't know where the building is.

I got my #1 bid through the lottery selection but got nothing from preselect or alternate. It indicates that chances are pretty slim to get the job and chances are pretty high that I am not an attractive candidate, right? I will have to fly to CA only to have this interview so have to make a tough decision. What do you think, guys?

No pre-selects, no alts and no lottery

Well that was a wasted exercise.

If it says "alternate accepted" does that mean we got the alternate spot unless there is a scheduling conflict? Or does everyone get "alternate accepted" even if you were, for example, the 5th person to accept out of 3 spots?

Next Tuesday the 14th according to the coordinator's email.

I wonder if employers had some say in the lottery, because some people got a match while others did not?

I'd like to think so, but pretty sure that's wishful thinking. A classmate of mine got a lottery pick with a firm she already has screener with through a different channel, which makes it seem highly unlikely the firm had any say in the BADCF lottery picking her (now she has to cancel the redundant BADCF interview).

DLA Piper self identification email..

Are we required to submit that survey to be considered for an interview? I completely ignored it.

So I'm guessing that if a "scheduled for July 25th" link doesn't appear next to "alternate accepted" that means you didn't get it. =(

Any alternate interviews you receive would actually be on the "Scheduled Interviews" tab.

This is what happens when you click accept alternate at 12:03 am PST.
