Withdraw applications after accepting offer (off-plan)?

Post by Anonymous User » Fri Jun 26, 2020 7:10 pm

This is probably trivial, but I applied off-plan, was offered a clerkship, and accepted it. Because I did not go through OSCAR, I do not have the easy withdraw option.

I have a couple of other apps in that have not generated any response. Is it easier for chambers to get the notification from me now proactively or only if/when movement occurs on my application?

Just be prepared to decline the interview request if any of those judges reach out. No need to affirmatively contact 30 judges you applied to by paper to decline their consideration, unless you want to reverse flex or something.

Possible exception for judges/chambers you have already had substantial individualized communication with.

Thanks! I only applied to 5 judges total and have only had any communication at all with the chambers I got the offer from, so it sounds like I can rest easy and just react as needed.
