Gibson Dunn NY called people back? Man. I thought my interviewer all but told me straight up that I was getting called back, but s/he neither called me nor gave me the (ever-elusive) note.

What is the note? I've never gotten a 'note' in an interview.


I heard a rumor about certain offices/interviewers handing out notes on the spot (maybe inviting them to some kind of a callback dinner?).

Truth or law school lore? Who knows. But apparently the NY office called people back :|

some of the Denver people (I'm not sure about other offices) got some invite to a super-secret dinner.

Yeah, quite, quite high. I've gotten the sense from EIP that some firms CB a very large # of people to do a more intense interview and then offer only a relatively small # compared to the CB # v. those firms that don't call back as many, but have a high % of offers compared to CBs.


It seems to me that Schulte is switching from the latter strategy to the former one this year. Seriously, I do not know anybody who got dinged by the firm. :|

How many do you count?


What are you referring to? People I know who interviewed and got CBed?

I don't think I know anyone who interviewed at Schulte and didn't get CBed.

Sample size is not significant, but off the top of my head... I know 7 people who interviewed, and they all got a callback within a day.

Last year Schulte asked 25% of their interviewees back for CB. Maybe I just happen to hang out with people that fit the Schulte profile perfectly, or maybe they are asking more people back. :roll:
