So I think I'm "on hold" at Davis Polk. I haven't heard anything. Is there anything I can do to get off hold or is this just a matter of waiting it out and hoping for the best?

Anybody still getting CBs, or at this point, if you haven't heard yet it's over?

Unfortunately, it's over. I think all of the CB's are done.

I don't know of anyone who has heard either way... I'm starting to think they just showed up at EIP to save face and aren't taking very many summers. How considerate of them to waste one of my bids.

Anyone rejected from or called back at Herbert Smith? Apparently they fly you out to London.

I got completely shut out at EIP, not a single callback. Interviewed with 21 NYC firms of varying size. GPA is not good (3.1) but I did not expect this. Is it just that I am a terrible interviewer or is anybody with a GPA like mine never going to get an offer in NYC?

I heard that last year lots of people with that GPA got either 0 or 1 callback. This year it seems like most people have some callbacks (but that might just be because I hang out with lots of overachievers); are there still many people with no callbacks?

Email rejection from Jones Day in CA, and phone rejection from Orrick in SF. Thank you to the guy who unfortunately had to get the surprise of a phone rejection--seeing that post made me prepared for it. Still, wtf. I'm around a 3.1 as well but bid on just about all CA firms. I did a bunch of interviews and have had no success yet.

You're welcome.

But I am doing real poorly as well. Think have about a 3.2 and interviewed primarily in NY and CA, with a couple in TX. No callbacks and a ton of dings, having interviewed with at least 30.

Still waiting to hear back from some more, though remain pessimistic. I believe the only firms I have still not heard from are:
Milbank, Wiggen & Dana, Baker and Hos, King & Spalding, Kaye Scholer,
Vinson & Elkins (NY, possibly TX), Sutherland,
Weil (Redwood and Dallas, general), Dechert LLP (London), Herbert Smith, Holland & Knight, and
Bickel & Brewer.

May be wrong. Been so numerous and constant that have lost count and track.

So is it all over for us with 3.1 GPAs? Also what is the median?
