For posterity:
8/16 - submitted app
9/18 - email to set up phone interview
9/25 - phone interview
11/24 - "under active consideration" email
12/14 - "under consideration for offer" email with request for references
12/17 - phone offer


Congratulations!! That's incredible. I know headquarters is extremely competitive. If you don't mind, could you share your stats? I received the active consideration email on the same date but never got a request for references. But I ranked local offices ahead of HQ so I'm hoping the timeline is a little different....

Thanks! I'm still pinching myself, this is such a brutal process. Will keep my fingers crossed for you! Here are my stats: Top third at T14, 2 yrs district court clerkship, currently doing a 1 year public interest fellowship. Good luck!

Silence on HUD. Guess I shouldn't have expected anything since they never even contacted my references (or at least mine never told me, and I'm afraid to ask to know the cold hard truth). I was so bad they didn't even contact my references. le sigh. the vale sucks.

I received and accepted an offer from the OCC a few weeks ago. Wondering if there are any future colleagues on here.

Has anyone heard from DOL regional offices? I had interviews with DOL HQ and a DOL regional office and prefer the regional office, so I'm wondering if all offers have gone out, or just HQ.

Could you share which regional office you interviewed with? was it one of the northern or southern ones? I interviewed with HQ (phone) but ranked regional offices ahead of HQ in my preferences. I was never offered an interview with a regional office but from what i've heard, they are optional and its up to each regional office.

Not OP, but there is at least one regional DOL office that is not done with interviews.
