Accepted d.ct. offer a month ago, no follow-up - advice?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Dec 10, 2014 3:39 pm

As the title says, I accepted a district court clerkship by phone just about a month ago, and I haven't received any kind of email/letter following up to confirm (or just generally assure me that I wasn't hallucinating) the offer.

What were peoples' experiences with post-offer follow-up? Am I being impatient? Should I reach out to a current clerk at some point?

I didn't get anything formal from the court until about a month before I started. I did reach out to my judge in the spring to get an offer letter, so I had proof of income for apartment hunting. It's normal not to hear anything. Don't worry, they haven't forgotten about you.

I got a letter in the mail confirming my offer/acceptance about two months after I accepted. Most of my friends that are going to be clerking still haven't received anything "formal".
