Anyone know anything about the Clark County (NV) clerk program? If you perform well, are you basically guaranteed a full-time ADA job? Are they ties-sensitive?

Does anyone have a third round with Bronx DA or Brooklyn Da?

I don't have firsthand knowledge but based on what I've heard from other people you can be cut from any final round of any office. Take every interview round seriously.

We are notorious for interviewing and hiring later than everyone else (first acceptance letters going out in like May, I think). We are still understaffed and hiring people here and there. I really don't have any insight as to what batch of resumes they are taking them from or what they are looking for.

I will second this , that you should take this round seriously, just as you would with the prior rounds.

Don't be surprised if there are numerous (as many as 5) people present during the final round.

Is it unusual to get a 3rd round invite from the Bronx the same day as your 2nd round (like ~1 hour later)? I'm kinda worried they might have made a mistake.

I don't mean this to sound like a humble-brag. My interview went okay, but wasn't great by any means. I do have a pretty strong resume, but nothing special.

If you're out of state, it's their policy. I got offered the same thing but my understanding of the way it works is that I'll have my panel in the morning and if the panel likes me, I'll meet with the DA the same day. They told me they try to schedule the panel like that for folks coming in from out of state.

Sounds like we have our first wave of Bronx 3rd rounds coming up this next week. I know two people from my school with 3rd rounds on 10/24.

Does anyone know the success rate on these? I have numbers from a couple years ago that say there were 111 3rd rounds and 54 new ADAs. Obviously many people who get offers end up going somewhere else, or withdraw before a decision, so from that I'd guess it's a 70-80% offer rate.

I have to think a higher percentage of people who get early (October/November) 3rd-rounds end up getting offers than with later 3rd rounds (though maybe there is an uptick at the end as they fill out the class). Why give someone a 3rd round in October if they aren't pretty well sold on them? Just to clear them off the books or something?

Miami SAO pays 40k to entry-level prosecutors. What's it like living there on that salary?

Would anyone happen to have email and or phone legal recruiting contacts for Bronx and Brooklyn? Applied 2 months ago and have not heard a thing.

If it makes you feel better, I interviewed in early October and forgot to ask as well.

Does anyone have insight regarding whether you're required to live in the borough where you work in NY?

Don’t believe there’s a requirement for any of the boroughs except for Staten Island, which requires residency within one of the 5 boroughs. The big 4 only require residency within the state if I’m not mistaken.
