Not surprising, as the other candidates were mostly a clown-show.


just curious, but why is gonzalez getting reelected good news for us?

New DA might nix the incoming class. It's happened before. Gonzalez staying in means stability.

Also, as I said, most of the other candidates are f***ing awful.

Take that for what it's worth. Curious if anyone else has heard something similar. I know Bronx was expected to have another big class.


Not sure if the office recently changed course, but BXDA from what I was told was hiring only a class of 50 for next year. I interned there over the summer.

To clarify, its immediately more good news for the incoming C/O 2017. It's good news for C/O 2018 in that its likely their hiring practice will remain the same as previous years. When Charles Hynes (incumbent) was defeated by Kenneth Thompson in 2013, a lot of the new hires that were scheduled to start working had their offers rescinded.

How many rounds does Brooklyn have? I looked on their site, but I don't see anything.

I presume 1) OCI/Screener, 2) Panel. But then what? Another panel then the DA or does it go straight to the DA after that?

Is there a typical timeline for hearing back after OCI screeners? I had 3 last week, and a 4th coming up this week (the 4 being the 4 big NYC offices).

Also, how much flexibility do you get for scheduling 2nd round interviews?

I've had three interviews with Bronx, Brooklyn and Manhattan scheduled.

Second round with Bronx and Brooklyn scheduled. I heard back from Brooklyn about 2-3 weeks and Bronx like 3-4 weeks.

Waiting for first round with Manhattan.

No flexibility for me at least. They basically offered me the next available date. Nothing sooner.

Is it proper to send an email or call Bronx, and Brooklyn to ask about application? Have not heard anything and I applied almost a month ago. It is confusing because I have an interview with DANY.

i would say not too at this point, a month is still pretty short turnaround...i guess it doesn't hurt to send a quick email to hr, but it won't help you at all this early i don't think.
