This is OP. Mind sharing what type of firms you got preselects for?

I have 4-5 V100 and the rest are NLJ250 with exception of one.

Does it say lottery instead of preselect if you are lottery? If so, I guess I didn't get any lottery interviews.

I am top 10ish% + Law review and got 25 interviews. How did anonymous poster above get 34 if 25 is the limit?

Has anyone heard anything about the "standby" interviews? Someone told me that he met the criteria for a firm, but didn't get an interview, so he hung around career services, and got an interview when someone didn't show up. I don't know how successful those people would be at turning the interview into a callback, though.

V & E called back for all of their offices. The people I know who got Thompson and Knight call backs got them for Dallas--I don't know whether Houston has done anything yet.

Fulbright invited some students to dinner at the end of their interviews, but I don't know if they've made formal callbacks. Any info on Jackson Walker?
