Hi,

I didn't see a topic for this so I wanted to start one. Has anyone heard anything yet or know of anyone getting an interview?

Got an email about all applications being scored and the first interviews starting this week. Unfortunately I am not in the first interview running, but crossing my fingers. Good luck to everyone!

I got the same email (all scored, interviews are beginning, they'll send monthly updates). Good luck to all and congrats to those who have interviews already!

Checking in to say I got the same email. I spoke with a career counselor briefly, and she said to interpret it as good news. The application has moved on to the next step of the process. Fingers crossed that it leads to an interview. Best of luck to everyone already interviewing!

Greenberg Traurig has selected at least some of their fellows. Arnold & Porter sent out some interview invites.

Does anybody know how start dates work if you are offered a fellowship? (I haven't personally been offered one at this point nor do I know anyone who has, just wondering). Do people all start on the same day in September with their respective host organizations or is there some flexibility depending on the host organization?

Does anyone know if there has been any movement lately? I haven't heard anything since the Nov. 28 status email - wondering if no December monthly update is a bad sign, or just due to the holidays.

Just received confirmation that I'm still being considered (first update since the 11/28 email for me).

"Thank you again for your interest in the Equal Justice Works Fellowship Program. I am writing to provide you with an update on the Fellowship selection process.

As a reminder, candidates will be selected to interview with sponsors on a rolling basis through April. We began interviewing and selecting Fellows in late November and will have many more interviews to come in the next few months.

In the coming months we will provide you with a notification email, confirming that your application is still under consideration.

Please contact us immediately with any updates regarding your continued availability for an Equal Justice Works Fellowship, e.g. interviews or offers of employment for other positions/fellowships/clerkships/etc. Upon request, Equal Justice Works will provide a personalized update on the status of your application should you need additional information to decide how to proceed with other active offers. If you receive another offer and opt to accept it, please inform us immediately that you are withdrawing from the Equal Justice Works Fellowship competition by emailing fellowships@equaljusticeworks.org so that we may notify any sponsors considering your application.

We appreciate your patience as we coordinate a complex Fellowship selection process. Please know that we are working as quickly as possible to select our class while maximizing each applicant’s opportunity to pursue their project."

Same anon as the quoted post. I recieved another status update today that looked very similar to this one, but included that a little over half of the 2019 class has been selected.

Recently interviewed and just selected, all after months of silence. Long process, but there’s still hope! Hang in there all.
