Fellow ATR-SF finalist. No word from them yet.

Thank you for chiming in, was really starting to melt down over here thinking I'd be in finalist purgatory for weeks or something while all the DC people got answers.

How do you all know that your references have been checked? Are you just asking your references? Not sure if I am missing something.

No you're not missing anything. My references let me know when they contacted by someone from DOJ. They were contacted on November 8th and 9th.

One of my references is my judge and he just walked over to my office and told me that DOJ was calling my references and that it was a good sign. My other references did not tell me whether DOJ reached out to them or not, but the person who gave me my offer made it sound like all of my references were contacted. I sent my non-judge references emails thanking them profusely afterwards.

For those of you still waiting: best of luck and I hope to see some of you in Washington next year!

Did the call come this morning? Or did you get the offer last week, and your status has now changed?

I was just designated a finalist. Was still "Selected for Interview" as of a few hours ago. (Not for EOIR).

So we know of how many Fed Program finalists? Offers?

It seems like there are three known offers. I'm trying to get a sense of where they are in the process.

also dying. this whole finalist designation thing doesn't seem to alleviate the problem of transparency if there are still internal hurdles that we don't see for making an offer.

I so wish there was a ranking system that we could see. Mostly so I'd know whether/when I need to start getting aggressive about finding other jobs.

I keep thinking that maybe one of my references hasn't replied or something. If they would just let me know, I could provide a new one, or whatever.
