Response Time for District Court Judges?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue May 14, 2013 9:42 pm

Obviously it totally depends on the judge, but I am curious about a general time frame for interview calls. I sent in my paper applications about 2 weeks ago and have only gotten a few emails confirming receipt. OSCAR apps are getting LORs uploaded as we speak. How long until I should assume they won't call for an interview? What % send rejection notices?

As a random aside, what do we think the relative application #s look like for OSCAR vs non OSCAR judges? Do judges that require paper apps get significantly fewer applications or not?

cue nervous waiting and crickets...

Interesting. I never even got email receipts of applications. I did two interviews. One interview request I received on what must have been the day the judge received my application, since it was two days after I sent the app out. I received the other request about 15 days after I sent the app.

Might the delay be longer right now due to the plan being June 28th and it being late? So maybe judges are just not hiring right now by and large and are waiting for spring grades in June?
