Yes. This typically means your callback is going to be revoked.


Wait, can you please explain...I'm uncertain of what exactly is being described here. If we already received a CB from dechert, and even spoke with someone and scheduled the day, could you still be in danger of having it revoked?

Ugh. No. And this is not the original poster. Just try not to make it onto Above the Law and you'll be fine.

Gah, guess I got dinged. Too bad. I had a genuinely great interview.


It could be a different partner calling and you just haven't heard yet. FWIW, I know of quite a few people who heard a couple days after everyone else did (and people posted on this thread) b/c their partner was traveling or busy or something.

How is that possible when they were just interviewing people this afternoon??


some firms give you the CB at the interview.


Yeah, that's really not common at all. Congrats, though. Who were your interviewers?

I interviewed in the morning, got a phone call in the early afternoon. Very excited.

Anyone know if there's any truth to the idea that some firms keep some candidates "on hold"? (i.e., if you haven't gotten a CB when you know they've gone out, but haven't yet received a rejection letter, is there still some shot?)

Could you be more specific about what the interviewer said to you? I think I got a CB at the interview too, but it was phrased just ambiguously enough to leave room for doubt. Told me they're hoping to make decisions tonight or tomorrow and that he/she will call me as soon as they can. Emphasis on "call."

Yeah the interviewer explicitly told me to schedule the CB and gave me the recruiting number. The interviewer also said to tell others that some interviewers will do CB's by phone rather than in person, so don't worry.

Talked with career service. Said that firms have at least three groups. Definite yes (immediate callback), definite no (immediate ding), and the middle (neither CB or ding). Middle, unfortunately, is very dependent on how the definite yes respond and pan out. The whole system is very much fucked up.

Did anyone get an immediate CB from initials KW? I didn't, but am hopeful! :)

Has anyone heard from Sullivan & Cromwell? Several people were told they were making decisions last night, but no one has posted about getting a callback from them yet.

your chances are proportionate to how much you come drink right now. HTH.
