I am very curious how rankings affect offers. For all of you CLB finalists and offerees, did you put CLB as your first spot ranking? I am beginning to regret my rankings.

The wait is AWFUL! Not sure if this or waiting for bar results is worse.

Awesome, congrats and thanks for letting us know there is some movement. Do you mind saying what court or what state even and if it was one of your choices for location?

Congrats! I guess you are the last Comm Lit acceptance since they were only hiring 3.


Did you accept with a particular section? Or just generally into CLB?


The latter. AFAIK they don't make offers for particular sections.


Same anon as quoted. Got the offer on Friday via phone. I ranked Civil Division first and Commercial Litigation first within it. I also interviewed for Torts (ranked second within Civil) but was not a Finalist for that branch.

Has anyone heard back about references being checked or given offers for EOIR, besides OCIJ? (i.e. BIA, OGC, OCHAO)

Did you get the email from the court itself or from EOIR generally? Just wondering if certain courts are making moves and not others.

Congrats!! Same question as above (but in case that person doesn't see): Did you get the email from the court itself or from EOIR generally? Just wondering if certain courts are making moves and not others.

No references checked. If you are comfortable saying have you received an offer with the honors program in a previous year. I was wondering if references might not be checked if that is the case.

I did not - here are my rankings:

Components / Offices of Interest: CIV - 1 ( CIV-APP - 1 , CIV-COMM - 2 , CIV-FEDP - 3 , TORT - 4 , CIV-CONS - 5 , OIL-APP - 6 , OIL-DC - 7 ) , FBI - 2 , NSD - 3

I only got a COMM interview from the formal component. I had IP Section and Fraud in the interview.
