Per Deanna, they went up last week. I interviewed with NSD; no status change.

Yeah, I'm just kind of hoping that there was some glitch, since apparently no one of the five people we have here got the finalist status. Lingering wishful thinking.

Partial list only. Still holding out hope. For those who were chosen as a finalist, were your references contacted?

Has anyone that was selected as a finalist for D.C. ATR today received an offer? Is the assumption that it will most likely be a bit longer of a process since they expect 17 hires?

I haven't heard anything yet, but will say that they give you an offer for a specific section. I can imagine that takes a little while to figure out.

So only the one Fed Programs offer today?

I wonder how likely it is that they're done, and the rest of us are alternates.

See also, me psyching myself out.

Me too :( She used the word "some" and said she does not know if this list is final so there may be SOME hope. But, she also did not say whether more are coming.


Quoted posted. I hope this is true, but I'm keeping expectations low. But her comments do seem to indicate that there weren't too many finalists posted, leading her to think that there could be more. Spreadsheet says that a few TLS members are finalists for tax, but there haven't been any offers reported. That suggests that they're still working through the list. That's the best scenario I can paint for us lol


Yes, as a tax finalist I'm very unclear on what is happening. No one I know of has received an offer at this point for at least Tax Crim, and my understanding is that they aren't close to making those calls yet. But who knows?


Tax-Crim finalist here. I got an email 11/9 asking to set up a phone call the next morning, and the phone call was to make the offer. Status changed in the "Selected by" column in Avue after the phone call.

Well that blows my theory haha! Don't want to be too specific, but my understanding was based on a recent conversation with someone in the division. Clearly that wasn't the case.

As a side note, this is why people should update the spreadsheet. Please. For all of our sanity.

Question for anyone with an offer from AFMLS, do you know if/when your references were contacted, especially in relation to when the offer was given? Or does anyone know if all three AFMLS offers have been made already (I think only two people have posted on here saying they received an offer)?

I'm currently a finalist and to my knowledge, my references have not been contacted. Just trying to determine if that means I'm likely an alternate or if there is still a chance an offer may be forthcoming.

I was the first AFMLS person to post. My references were contacted a few hours before the offer was made.

Second poster here (hi First, congrats!). I have no idea. I interviewed 10/18 and another division contacted my references that afternoon. I'm not sure if AFMLS contacted my references directly or contacted the other division. I usually hear from at least one of my references when she gets a call and only heard about the first division's contact. My AFMLS offer phone call happened around 9:30 am so I don't think AFMLS contacted my references a few hours before that!

I'm telling myself it's because they haven't contacted all my references yet...

Hi second poster! This is my actual account. I will probably accept the offer today, hope to see you there! PM me if you do, too, and I look forward to meeting you!
