Sorry, just to clarify, did you rank your preferences and THEN were reached out to for a regional interview?


Sorry.. yes, I ranked all of the offices, then the specific office reached out to set up a regional interview. My timeline (roughly) was this: October OCI; around thanksgiving ranked preferences; mid-December receive call from regional office asking me to come in the following week for an interview. Now I'm waiting. If it helps, I didn't rank HQ first.

I had an in-person interview with the FCC last week. They expect to complete all interviews by the end of this week.

DOL ding this morning via email. Interviewed over the phone in September, got a continued interest email in November. (It's been pleasant stalking this thread with you guys! Good luck!)

Wondering the same thing. USACE qualified in December, but haven't heard from any district offices. I was told hiring is completely up to those offices who are encouraged to hire Honors attorneys for openings at the GS12 level. There is no deadline so hires can be made up until the next year's program. I was hoping to hear something by January or February. Otherwise I will have to look at other options after my clerkship.

Anyone hear from USACE offices yet and, if so, do you mind sharing which general area?

Interviewed with an office about 3 weeks ago and heard back last week that they went with someone else.

For USACE people, were you notified about making the qualified list? I interviewed in mid-January but have not heard anything yet.

Interviewed in mid-Jan as well, have not received an official email, but I did receive a call last week about updating my preferences (I originally left off the area where I was currently attending law school and they called to see if I was sure). I assume they would not have bothered if I wasn't qualified, but they haven't sent out anything formal yet either.

Just got a ding from the CFPB (pretty sure this is the first email I've received since I applied in August). The email states they aren't making any offers this year.

Good afternoon,

Thank you for your interest in the CFPB’s Honors Attorney Program. Unfortunately we will not be extending offers for the program this year.

Please keep the Bureau in mind as you plan your future career.

Any word from the FCC? Had an interview with them a couple of weeks ago and they hinted that they were moving quickly but radio silence since then.
