Posner is done (per OSCAR). I think I heard Wood is done too?

Easterbrook only hires U of C grads, and a U of C professor chooses his clerks.

That's such a shame in my opinion. I'm a non-Chicago student and I think Easterbrook is on my short list of about three judges that I think would be the most interesting to clerk for. Besides, the man has a voice like God's.

Frankie -- if you're out there. Give me a PM. We'll see if we can't work something out.

Tinder's Oscar posting says that he is not accepting applications right now, but will post on Oscar when he is (online apps only).

Tinder is not hiring for 2014. Any other news? I'm anxious.

Ripple doesn't interview without 4 semesters of grades. He's very strict on this rule, so I'm guessing he is still waiting.

Does he accept that update via email or hardcopy only? I emailed and got no response.

I'm not sure if he regularly accepts email- that's how I did it but I know his secretary because I did a directed reading with him. Not sure if her email is public knowledge though.

His oscar posting says he accepts via all forms and gives an email address for his chambers. I may just throw a transcript in the mail with the other updates I was gonna send.

Anyone know what's going on with Flaum? He just moved his post to the top, has he been interviewing?

Hamilton's OSCAR page says he'll be interviewing in late July. Anyone know if he's started scheduling those yet?
