Fellowships 2019-2020 (Skadden/EJW, etc.)

Postby TitleVIIStan » Wed Sep 18, 2019 11:04 am

Hi everyone,

I don't think this thread exists yet, so..... here we go. Who's on that fellowship grind?

Submitted Skadden on Monday, but I already know it's an uphill battle based on my School Rank/GPA. I'm hoping a miracle will happen or maybe that Kathleen is moving away from the emphasis on those things.

I still need to finish my EJW app but I'm exhausted. Whatever happens, I'll be happy when these are both in.

Has anyone gotten a call from Skadden about interviews? Website says they would be notifying people today.

In years past, they've started calling later in the evening (6:00 or 6:30 EST) so if they are calling today, they'll probably start soon.

Well I guess I'll just panic every time my phone vibrates for the rest of the evening.

The website makes it seem like just one person is making the calls - and that 100 people are getting interviews. So that process has to take several hours, right? Any idea how late calls have gone out in the past?

Anon mind if I ask what time your call came in? Just trying to gauge if I should give up or if they're likely still calling.

Also heard a rumor that they call alphabetically by last name but WHO KNOWS.

Anyone who had an interview remember when the finalist results come out? It's either today or tomorrow, but I can't recall. I guess I was too nervous to pay attention to what Kathleen said :\

I received a call this afternoon. A couple years ago, one of the finalists received a call after 8 pm.
