Their "draft" is today. First round of offers will be called right after and given "a day or two" to reply, with next round of offers (if needed) going out after.

I saw at least one person bragging on Facebook, so yes, at least some calls have gone out.

Um, no? SC clerkships went out last week, and that's that. CoA should be making their decisions this week.

Different anon than above, but I was asked during interview about being considered for COA and told COA decisions would be made as soon as the SC had selected its clerks. Perhaps it's not too late to apply, but at the very least hiring for COA is on a rolling basis starting now from the remaining applicant pool. Can also confirm that SC calls were made last week.

I'm Anon that asked the question. Thanks for the info. I got my COA apps in last week, but I wasn't expecting to hear anything until November. I am glad to hear that they may be making their decisions earlier.

That makes a minimum of 2, (and, if my analysis of prior comments serves me correctly, perhaps 4), people who are actively awaiting on the AKCoA.

No confirmed rejections or acceptances.

I'm sure the anticipation is eating away at you all as it is eating away at my soul and intestines. As in, I know I probably didn't get it (since the call should have come today), but without anyone else out there to confirm they went out, I feel as if my life is in a state of unrest and decay.

I'm hoping to get it. I'm not sure if this is the place to post this, but I lived in Anchorage so if anyone has questions about living there I'm happy to answer. If I don't get to go back I will be insanely jealous of you that get an offer because it's an amazing place to live.

They did interviews all day on Monday, so I imagine there are 15-20 or so people (30 min interviews) trying for the clerkships. I assume that because we haven't heard anything, they have already made offers. They said multiple times in my interview that they would be making calls yesterday/today.

Are you in the pool for Superior Court judges? If you really want to be in Anchorage, look into it!

I just received some correspondence from a trial judge...this makes me think the CoA has selected and app's have shifted down to the Superior (and Anc Dist) courts.

I'm kind of in a bind. I really wanted CoA, but now have another offer pending. Does anyone know any way to confirm whether CoA decisions went out? I ask, because there doesn't seem to be any direct way to talk to court staff, etc.

Did you interview with CoA? The number for their chambers, as well as the clerk of the court is listed here. http://www.courts.alaska.gov/courtdir.htm I am not sure of the protocol for contacting a Judge about a pending offer, but that list will allow you to contact the court.

Superior Court has begun hiring, so I think it is safe to say CoA has been completed hiring even though we have no confirmation.

Has anyone kept themselves in the superior court hiring pool? Hear anything?
