Have you had it yet and are waiting to hear back or is it just scheduled? Did they say anything to you about when you'd hear?

Also curious if anyone has received a Wilkins (DC Cir) interview. His OSCAR profile says interviewees will be notified no later than Monday 2/13.

Declined it because I already accepted an offer. Hard to withdraw with paper application, which is what Judge Broderick required...

Anyone get a call today? Assuming if we don't hear today then it's a ding.

Speaking of Judge Bea, anyone know his reputation and what it's like to work for him?

Any specifics? Those adjectives could mean a lot of things

My guess is this person is trolling because your post implies you have/expect an offer or, at minimum, an interview.

I am not trolling. I know several people who have clerked for Bea and advised me not to apply.

There is a video of a clerkship seminar given at HLS or SLS a few years back that corroborates the above if you listen closely and between the lines.

Yeah, to be fair, I have no personal experience at all but I've seen other people say this, here and elsewhere. I have no idea if it's true but it's a reputation I've seen.

Can confirm Judge Bea is interviewing for 2018-2019. Does anyone know if he has extended any offers? Or anecdotal evidence of how many interviews he has done? Asking for a friend...

Any other information on why he is bad to work for? I haven't heard that per se, just that he is maybe intense.

"Asking for a friend" is fairly superfluous in an anonymous post...

Gorton does his interviews in June. Can't speak to the rest.

FYI, I got an email from Burroughs saying that she's looking for two years of experience post-law school (which I don't think was on her OSCAR profile when I applied).

Burroughs e-mails recommenders thanking them for taking the time to recommend applicants as well. Don't know if it's for competitive candidates or standard operating procedure.
