Has anyone of this board interviewed with EOIR-BIA?

Not sure if it statistically helps anxiety at all, but I think that's the case for all of us.

My OCIJ component just disappeared while OCAHO is still there. I can't handle this.

Does anyone know about how long it has historically taken to designate "finalist" after removing the component?

I now have a "finalist" designation, but both components (EOIR-OCIJ and CRT) disappeared so I am not sure for which office.

Does anyone know if it's possible to be a finalist for more than one component? I just got finalist for EOIR: OCIJ and I'm wondering if this means that I'm no longer being considered for the other components that I interviewed for.

Same thing happened to me. Both components (OCIJ and OCAHO) disappeared. Then OCIJ reappeared with a finalist designation. OCAHO did not reappear.

What’s usually the wait time between being designated a finalist and the offer?

I think it depends a lot—some finalists are alternates, so they have to wait to hear from people given offers first before reaching out. I know of someone who got an offer in February last year, for example.

Received an offer (call) from CRM (Honors program, not sure if SLIP is also happening right now). Haven't checked my online status checker.

Just checked mine and Im a finalist for EOIR-OCIJ, I also interviewed with Criminal Div. for Trial Attorney and that one disappeared, does that mean I am not a finalist for that and only OCIJ? If anyone got a finalist for Crim-Trial please post.

Can you please check to see if your status checker changed to finalist if it was for CRM Trial, thanks!

I'm in the same boat. EOIR-OCIJ finalist but the other components I interviewed for (OIL-DC and CLB) disappeared. I assume that means I am not a finalist for either of the components that disappeared.

Yes



Were you able to check your status checker and confirm that it changed to finalist for you? (I have no doubt that it did but just want to see if they are jumping the gun or not)
