Currently applying to federal clerkships. Is there an average amount of time before you hear back (if selected)? Also, is it proper to call to confirm receipt of submitted apps outside of OSCAR?

Don’t call. You have no idea how deluged judges are with applications and you will annoy their (small) staff. If I recall correctly, one chambers in SDNY (Briccetti?) sends regrets, but that’s unusual. You will likely hear back fairly quickly (if at all) outside of the Oscar process because judges worry that they’ll lose out on good candidates if they delay.

Good luck. As someone who struck out through Oscar and got just one interview without Oscar (but all you need is one good one!) I know it’s a stressful process. But there’s just not a ton you can do once you’ve sent out applications.

Lots of luck? I had good (not incredible) grades, I was from one of the 3 law schools that my judge looks at applications from, and I had pre-law-school background that made me look like a good fit for a major case that was still expected to be on the docket a year from then.
