Also, has no one heard from Philly or Miami-Dade?

I know of a number of philly offers that are out in the world.


Are you sure that’s for the 2019 class? They just announced a ton of brand-new hires for immediate start. They also announced a recruiting tour last week. My sense is that their process is barely starting up... I hope.

Yes, I'm sure it's for the 2019 class. I am friends with several of the 3Ls who have received these offers.

Anyone heard of any third round interviews (with an executive) at Brooklyn out in the world?

Suppose you have offers from the Bronx and Brooklyn, which would you accept if you aspire to one day go Federal (anywhere in the US)? Also, is it worth pushing back final round interviews in each office for a third round with Manhattan?

I know people with third rounds but they're former interns.

Have you already had a panel with Manhattan, and if so, were you a former intern there or no?

In terms of your first question, I think Bronx and Brooklyn are pretty even in regards to federal. Manhattan sends more people federal as far as I know.

Yes and yes. Part of me thinks it's not worth it because it seems that Manhattan only offers the prestige on paper and solid training. But in terms of substantive experience, the lack of crime in Manhattan seems to be a real limiting factor for personal growth and taking on more serious cases.

I withdrew before my final interview there but was told they are making final decisions next week.

I think it depends on your end goals. If you wanna go federal, Manhattan seems to be your best bet. Although if you're not limiting yourself to SDNY/EDNY, then you might be able to do that at Bronx or Brooklyn. Also in terms of experience, I've heard that you move up much faster in the Bronx-- I know someone who is already doing felonies a year and a half in.

Does anyone have any info about the hiring process at Cook County? I'm from out of state and have a Skype interview soon, but am curious how long it typically takes to get a hiring decision. TIA

Where's everyone at in their process? I had a first round with Manhattan and I'd really like to hear back. Had panels with several other offices and have third round with the Bronx very soon.
