Congrats to the new Skadden Fellows!

Now will we finally hear back about EJW?

Does anyone know if we here directly from EJW about interviews, or from potential sponsor?

I was notified by EJW via email. I was first notified of interview on 12/6, follow up confirmation email a few days later, and interviewed today.

Sorry to hear that. :( Did you happen to get the e-mail earlier this week stating that 20% of the spots are filled?

I didn't get one earlier in the week but the ding email that came today said they are at 25%. Said the sponsor decided to go with a different project type stuff. I don't know how much of it was boiler plate/template but that email also said there are still more sponsors showing interest in my proposal and not do be discouraged. At this point will just play it by ear.

Did they give you a timeframe for when you would hear back about your interview? They told me 3 weeks which seems pretty long and definitely feels like a lifetime. It looks like you heard back sooner so I am hoping I might get a quicker response.

On my end no ding, no interview, no email, just in limbo.

A friend is in the process for EJW right now. She got an email maybe two weeks or three weeks ago saying (1) that they had already the top candidates and gone to sponsors and (2) that they had already sent out a lot of rejections and that she was still in the running. Radio silence since then.

They told me 2 weeks. I have another interview with a different sponsor early next week, we will see how this one goes. I have not received any of the mass status update emails.

Did anyone receive the December email about still being in the running for EJW, but has not heard anything in January?

Had an EJW panel interview with Pfizer on 1/25, dinged last Friday. Still in the running and may get picked up by other sponsors, but I'm losing hope. :(

What other fellowships are people applying to, besides the "big two"?

What should I do if I've been given another offer (that I'm not too excited about)?

Did you receive any notifications last month?

I have had a few dings and am waiting on word from the last interview. I think it is probably safe to assume that after the amount of interviews/dings I have had that this is probably my last chance. I am wondering if the email status update from the interview is the "kiss of death"....Like, if you got selected is it a phone call?

I am really trying to stay positive, the ding's are hurting my confidence though! Hopefully this last interview was "the one"!

How many interviews have you gotten so far? I've gotten one, but I was dinged, though I am still in the running. I know of a 2017 EJW fellow who got accepted after her third interview, so I wouldn't be so pessimistic!
