If your status changed to finalist, and the CRT code is now gone, it's likely you did not get selected. If they're in the middle of doing updates, however, it's possible that it will pop back up.


I'm wondering if there are any CRT finalists.


CRT interviewee here, status is still "Selected for Interview"


I'm grateful for the AVUE updates, but they mess with my head so much! Thanks for chiming in.


Also here for any discussion of what on earth a Trump CRT is going to look like and whether it's worth accepting or whether we'd just be twiddling our thumbs for (hopefully) four years. I feel like I might be happier to not get it at this point and not have to decide.

Many questions coming in. Here's an updated list of components that have definitely NOT designated finalists as of this posting:

1. Civil Rights Division
2. Environment and Natural Resources Division
3. Federal Bureau of Investigation
4. Executive Office for Immigration Review (OCIJ and OCLA)
5. U.S. Attorney's Office-Southern District of New York

I believe the components listed below have completed their finalist selections. Take this with a grain of salt because nothing precludes them from coming back and selecting more finalists after they review their lists.

1. Antitrust Division (all locations)
2. Civil Division
3. Criminal Division
4. Drug Enforcement Administration
5. EOIR-Board of Immigration Appeals
6. Federal Bureau of Prisons
7. Indian Country Fellowship
8. Tax Division (both sections)
9. USAO-District of Arizona
10 USAO-Northern District of Ohio (has met its hiring goal)
11. U.S. Trustee Program
12. National Security Division
13. Executive Office for Immigration Review (OGC, OCAHO, OLAP)

There is no fixed deadline by which offers must be extended. This is a matter of component discretion. Within the same component, offers go out at different times, depending on many factors, including but not limited to reference checks, the issuing attorney's work schedule (he or she may be in court or in meetings), delay in the issuing attorney receiving actual authorization to issue the offer, and so forth.

I'll do my best to keep everyone informed. Best of luck to all who are waiting.



Well, that's a relief. The hope lives for some components. Here's to hoping they get things in by tomorrow morning.

I understand that. But I keep reminding myself that a lot of the initial work might still be Obama related. I admit that may be delusional. If civil rights is something you'd want to do long term, it's worth considering sucking it up.

If someone at your school can put you in touch with an alumnus who worked in CRT under the Bush Administration that might be your best bet.

Can we go back to our rampant speculations about the the finalist/offer ratio?

We've heard of two federal programs offers so far. That means there are 6 spots left. What are the odds that those are all already taken by people not reporting on TLS.

To all the people wondering about having a code disappear when you're selected as a finalist--look back at Deana's post about how the display changes going forward. Once you're a finalist, the codes for the sections with which you interviewed disappear. She posted something about " you already know who you interviewed with, the display changes..." CRT hasn't posted any finalists yet, so it would disappear if you're now a finalist elsewhere

Ahhhh.


I'm with you. Desperately hoping that Tax Crim identifies some more finalists. It's too bad. I thought that was my best interview out of three I had.

Did the call happen recently? I'm trying to get a sense of how late they would call. (i.e. when I can stop thinking about this for the night.)

Oof. Well, at least we know they were making calls at various points in the day and not all at once. Let's just hold out hope they just haven't been able to reach our references yet.

Is anyone else a finalist for ATR-SF? I know they had two spots but wasn't sure whether they'd use both or how many finalists they would pick.

On the other side, this guy was deemed too racist to be a judge. Also, if you weren't convinced the DOJ is gonna spend the majority of its resources hunting immigrants, well now you know you will be doing exactly that. This man is a straight up racist (but expected under a Trump admin).

Competent by Trump standards, yes. He's a former USA but a controversial one. He's was too racist to be a judge in the 1980s. Expect CRT, ENRD, Crim, and anything immigration related to basically do a 180. DOJ was sort of leading the charge on criminal justice reform and environmental cases. That is going to likely go in the exact opposite way now.
