This isn't completely accurate.The recent graduate program of PMF is not exempt.
The reason Pathways and the other PMF programs are exempt is because employment is provisional with no guarantee of conversion into a permanent job.

Right and the PMF program (not the Recent Graduates Program) is most comparable to Attorney HPs. My point still stands, if you have an HP offer then you should be ok. I have heard of agencies reducing the size of their Hp classes or delaying offers but no rescinding of offers. I'm a current Honors Attorney. The caveat being that nothing is for certain anymore.
Thanks for this.
So why do you think Honors wasn't included along with the PMF and Pathways exemptions in the guidance?
Attorney hiring in the federal government is weird. Not all attorney positions go through OPM.
