I know its not "no" until its no, but has anyone here ever actually received an offer after a month of silence following an interview?

Yes–I got an offer almost 6 weeks after my interview. However, the judge hadn't made any other offers for the term I interviewed for (though I obviously didn't know that at the time) during the intervening time. If the judge you interviewed with has made other applicants offers for the same term you interviewed for, it's probably not a great sign, and vice versa.

I have a friend who received an offer after 3 months of silence. To build on the previous point, some judges tend to make offers on a rolling basis while others like to interview a batch of candidates then hire a "class" together. If you're one of the first interviews in the latter situation, an offer after a month wouldn't be crazy.

I know someone who interviewed with Greenaway but, to my knowledge, the person hasn't gotten an answer either way

I'm not sure about his preferences (beyond top schools, top grades), but I know he hired at least two clerks for 2018-19 back in the summer, so I would suggest moving quickly if you're interested in that year.

Don't think they have filled spots yet but idk what their timelines are. Wouldn't be surprised if Bill in particular starts the process soon-ish

IDK what "bother trying" is supposed to mean. You waste maybe 30 minutes on a decent cover letter and maybe 2 bucks in postage depending on how you send it. If you're sending other applications in, you should send one to her also. Don't be discouraged! You can do it!

Yes, she has hired and does hire male clerks. That was a weird question.

Along that note, does anyone know if he or any of the other AL judges give those writing tests that the other threads are talking about?

It's tough, but happens to top students who apply locally and broadly
