Oscar says all positions are open still, but I'm not sure based on past posts.

I JUST sent an application update and now see this. Stupid me. To be fair to myself I guess I didn't have my D. Ct. clerkship until just before she filled anyway...

Hall clerk I talked to implied he wouldn't be moving for a while.

I got one a few months ago, but not recently. It confirmed receipt. What did yours say?

I suppose it would be an equivalent to a receipt confirmation, but I applied months ago (I'm sure she had to send out many, so maybe I was just farther down the line). I don't have it on me for the exact language, but it discussed how the judge will be reviewing applications at some point and will contact at a later date if she needs more information. It just sounded very different than my other "thanks for applying" letters.

Is it too early to apply for 2016-17? I know some judges posted for 2015-16 in the spring. For those who don't use oscar, can you apply at any time? Should I call chambers first to ask if they're accepting for that term yet? I should probably do that before sending it. It's crazy how far ahead they're hiring...

Depends on the judge, but for some, yes, definitely not too early. Earlier thread indicates Katzmann has already hired out to 2017-18.

Any intel on whether Chin is actually still considering 2016 apps?

Yeah, I'd take his OSCAR posting at face value. I think he hires in a systematic way, as it suggests.

Chin has hired at least one for 2016, but per OSCAR still seems to be looking. Jacobs has also hired one for 2016. Last I heard, Lynch was done.

Besides Katzmann (who I hear is taking applications from high schoolers for 2024; j/k), are any other Second Circuit judges actively hiring for 2017?
