Emails from COA judges noting receipt of paper application?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Feb 07, 2014 7:56 pm

Is it common for the chambers of COA judges to email you when they've received your paper application? I mass mailed 2 weeks ago and have received several email confirmations that they've received my app. Was wondering if this was standard procedure or if it might bode well for my chances.

- Thx

I received maybe 2 snail mail confirmations about receiving my application. It was much more common to hear nothing, unless you were getting a call for an interview.

Standard procedure for judges varies by the judge. So I'd suspect that email acknowledgments are SOP for those chambers. I just think it would be fairly odd for chambers to acknowledge different applicants differently - it's just not usually how things work (if they liked you enough to treat your app differently I think they'd just ask you to interview). But my direct experience with COA judges is pretty limited, so I could always be wrong.
