Yes to Kaye, no to the other two. I'd be interested to hear if there has been any word from Curtis.

Thanks for your reply. Would you mind sharing when and by which (email or snail) from Kaye?

We need to add offers to the running callback list. So far it's only SullCrom and Cravath, right?

it seems like there may be a mythical hold pile but the vast majority of the holds turn into dings

Sidley snail mail ding.

I think a lot of the holds are due to biglaw partners being too busy to signature a rejection letter.

I interviewed with all these firms; still haven't been dinged. For some reason almost all firms have treated my candidacy with complete ambivalence.

Do most firms send email confirmations of scheduled callbacks or are we supposed to just show up? When do people get their interviews' names and such?

Thanks!

Firms will send out confirmations roughly right after you schedule. You'll get the itinerary the day before. If you don't receive one and the day is getting late, absolutely contact the person in recruiting who sent out your confirmation.

Some firms don't give you the names of your interviewers until you arrive at the firm, and some don't give them to you at all. (I remember at one firm they gave me a list of the interviewers' contact information at the very end, after the interviews were over.

In a case like that, it doesn't hurt to tell the interviewer that you didn't know s/he would be interviewing you until just a few minutes ago, before you launch into your "what practice group are you in?"-type questions.

How do you know that?


Because Recruiting explicitly told me.
