The two I know got their offers via email, I guess it depends on the court!

Is it the hiring court that makes the offer? Or someone at OARM?

EOIR OCIJ

Postby anon2525 » Thu Nov 15, 2018 2:22 pm

Finalist for EOIR-OCIJ.

Are there people here who put Miami or San Francisco as their top two choices for EOIR OCIJ?

Finalist updates HP& SLIP
Hi, all:

We've been receiving updates from components over the past 24 hours. Some are still due out, so don't panic.

As of now, here's what has been posted. Please bear in mind that all components formally participating in either Program have until close of business tomorrow to select finalists. Updates are posted after my office clears candidates for possible offers.

Please also bear in mind that the status display is controlled by the most advanced status, so if you are a finalist for two components, one issues an offer, and we update, then the code for the other component that designated you a finalist disappears. That does NOT mean you are not still a finalist for the other component. It just means that the "offer issued" status is linked to the component or components that have issued an offer.

FOR THE HONORS PROGRAM:

USAO, Central District of California
USAO, District of Arizona
USAO, Southern District of New York
USAO, District of Arizona (has met hiring goal)

Civil Division
- OIL-Appellate
- OIL-District Courts
- Federal Programs
- Appellate Section
- Consumer Protection
- Commercial Litigation

Tax Division (both Civil and Criminal)

EOIR
- OCIJ
- OD
- OP
- OGC

SUMMER LAW INTERN PROGRAM

Folks, quite honestly, these are coming in piecemeal. My advice is to check periodically to see whether there are updates. We'll do our best to get it all updated by Monday.


I received an offer from CLB this week and my Avue account reflects that. Should I understand Deana's message to mean that if I was subsequently made a finalist for another component, I will not be able to see that on Avue (because "Offer Issued" is the most advanced status)?

Did they say how long it was between their designation as finalist and their offer?

That is the way I would take Deana's message. Would you mind saying what day you received your offer and whether it was by phone or email?

Same. I haven't heard anything re reference checks, but I heard that AFML in particular does them after selecting finalists.

You are right, that is what I heard too from several sources. So there is hope! Hopefully they will send out designations today and not tomorrow. It feels like each second is a whole month now haha

UST checked at least one of my references. Have they checked multiples of anyone elses? Also, would love to know when others are designated as finalists for the component.

Has anyone else received an offer from CLB? Trying to determine whether I'm an alternate.

Wow. That's tough, February is a long ways away. Any idea what percentage of finalists end up getting offers?

I just wanted to say that I think your instagram/moneygram reply was hilarious and I think at this point all of us need some humor/sarcasm :)

Received the offer yesterday. The offer was by phone but was preceded by an email to set up the phone call.

Aye! UST only checked one of my references--that I know of. Also, the UST component disappeared on the status checker, so hopefully we find out sooner than later on finalist selections. Good luck!
