Yeah that's very typical especially at some of the bigger orgs. Depending where you are, they might be in the midst of budget finalizations, which determines how many (if any) new attys they can hire. Some places wait until the money is allocated before they will give an offer. I would wait a week then reach out again. But I'd also be applying elsewhere right now.

No, you’re not ghosted. The representative said a senior attorney would get back to you. If no senior attorney contacts you, just give it a few days and politely follow up.

Legal aid organizations can be busy, and hiring a new attorney may take longer than it would at a big law firm.
