COA won't move until after SC conducts interviews on September 12 and 13.

Minnesota kids? Care to share any of their info?

I'm top 20% at a decently ranked school in the southeast. I grew up and went to college in MN and then moved down here for law school (primarily due to a juicy scholarship offer). I'd like to know where I stand in relation to my fellow applicants.

Does anyone know how quickly the supremes make hiring decisions? Do you think coa interview offers will be going out by the end of September?

coa interview offers are likely to go out early september, i believe. basically, right after the supreme ct makes its decisions.

I have not heard anything. My status on the mncourts.gov website just says "application received" for my COA application.

This must be wrong. I received a call earlier this week from HR to schedule an interview for an SC clerkship.

Really, some hope still? Well good luck. Stats here:

Transfer into UMN from another local school.

Top 25% at 1st school
Top 50% at UM.

Was not able to get on a journal in time. Good work experience and legal intern and clinic experience.

Post how it goes.

From what I have been told all SSC clerkships have been filled. No news on COA. Good luck everyone. Personally I believe I am on my way to the Veil of Tears (3L Job hunting).

Protip: Justices sit on the Supreme Court, judges sit on the COA. Don't call a judge a justice, even if he is the chief judge, or he will call you out and you will look like a stupid law student.

Also, was called for COA interview last week Thursday. Pretty sure they scheduled all interviews last week.

Do you mind broadly posting your stats? Also for the "pool" interview, did you go through the Minnesota Employment website?
