Post by Guest » Mon Sep 03, 2018 6:18 pm

We need a post about this.

Anyone else here apply? Which divisions did you go with? If you haven't finalized it yet, heads up- applications are due tomorrow (9/4/18).

Aren't they only hiring folks for EOIR (AKA the modern SS)?

No, they’re hiring in a bunch of components, as always.

Nony, they're hiring just handfuls of people for the different components compared to prior years, except for 131 for EOIR.

EOIR has always been the predominant hiring component for the Honors Program, usually more than 100 in a cycle in recent years. In fact, the ramped up hiring for EOIR began around 2012/2013ish, during the Obama years. In 2016, DOJ offered 108 EOIR Honors Program spots out of a total of around 200, and that wasn't Trump. It's true that EOIR is a larger proportion of the total this year, but it's still only about 130 out of the 218 total spots this year.

1) this is how it always works. This includes more non-EOIR positions than in some of the last 5-ish years (see hiring freeze under Obama particularly).
2) hiring more in EOIR is not at all the same as only hiring in EOIR. Handfuls =/= none.

Anyone have any sense of whether it will be less competitive this year?

Based just off the level of engagement here and on TLS, I'd say there's less interest in the program. In previous years there would already have been several pages of discussion by this point.

So interview notices should start coming this week. Based on the patterns of previous cycles, I predict notices will start coming tomorrow and into Thursday.

I’m trying not to get my hopes up, but that’s not going to stop me from refreshing the status checker like crazy.

Feels like law school admissions again.

Does the status checker tell you before you’d get an email about it or something? I figured they’d happen simultaneously.

Does it show what component? The online status can often show up early before the email notification.

Actually, some folks at TLS apparently got updated too. Guess it’s updating in waves.

I don't think it's a glitch, I think that means you got interviews with all the formal components to which you applied! Congratulations!!
