Quite a few. Do you not read the thread?
Actually, there was only one mention of a callback from Akin way back in the beginning of the thread, and it didn't specify which office.


Why did you remove your insult? Step up!!
Haha. Well I just figured I didn't need to be a dick either.


Confused?

With all due respect, maybe you've been in New York City too long and lost your frame of reference.

Yet another (and distinct) anonymous poster here in agreement. Everyone I know is normal and chill, too.

Trying to see if I'm doing well or need to switch it up a little.



From my group of friends, three seems to be about average.


I only know one person with three or more. From the people I know (both scholars and non), it's currently 1 or 2.

Am I the only one who doesn't talk about callbacks with his/her friends?

I look at it like grades and money; it shouldn't be openly discussed unless it's understood that everyone is in the same position.

So you plan to talk openly about your salary as a biglaw attorney?

Among my friends who are also in the same associate classes at biglaw firms? Yes.

But one never talks about personal finances in the workplace or in public.

Are you kidding me? EIP is all that's on anyone's mind this week, and to ignore that would be naive. Once my friends and I started discussing our callbacks (whether 1, 10, or none), it lifted a lot of tension in the room.

Have you thought about whether it eased tension for those with none?

She was the one who inquired in the first place, actually. Once she realized that many of the partners she interviewed with hadn't made calls yet, she felt a lot better.

But my point is that this isn't a matter of etiquette the way not talking about your salary is. We're all in the same boat right now - or maybe even swimming around in the ocean looking for dry land.
