I'm waiting 'til Monday or Tuesday to assume that, since sometimes mail in New York can take a few days and rejections are traditionally sent by snail mail rather than e-mail.


Hmm well this particular firm sent out rejections by e-mail. Didn't get that, luckily, but didn't get a callback either. Anyone else in the same boat?

If we didn't get the snail mail rejection from HH, what does that mean? Slow mail? Have people gotten CBs from them, yet?

Pages 2 & 3 of this thread indicate HH has made some.

Your mail might be slow, but for now you’ve not been rejected. Limbo stinks, but possibility is nice, right?

I am guessing ding.


But don’t firms keep back-up lists? UVa’s Career Services office, quoted in that other thread, seems to think so.

Any speculation on how offer/callback ratios will be compared to last year? Last year, it was around 40% on average, with some firms as low as 10% and others as high as 80%.

This is a total guess, but I think that like everything else this EIP season, the answer is "slightly better but still not great."

I don't think we're going back to the good old days when callback-->offer ratios were upwards of 66%, but I think they will improve. If anything, hopefully there will be fewer firms recruiting basically for show (i.e., <20% callback-->offer ratios).

if you have a pre-existing relationship with the interviewer, I've heard that they will switch it for you / find someone else to interview you. Otherwise I'm not really sure why you'd want to do that (unless you want to switch offices, in which case I don't think you can do it but you might be able to suggest that to the interviewer that you do end up with, at some risk...)
