Anyone have updates on CA firms? Got a snail mail ding from Latham in SF. Heard that MTO had a dinner afterwards, so looks I got an unofficial ding. Also got dinged at Brown Rudnick in Boston, White & Case in Miami. Am below median, not on LR. My interviews mostly went fine, am really getting the sense that grades are determinative.

Thank you! Will only PM interviewer but stats are medianish.

Damn, I was really hoping for MTO but didn't get the dinner invite either. FWIW my grades are good (though no LR) and I haven't heard from the good firms even though I thought my interviews went well.

I'm in the same position with a couple of firms and I'm taking it as a position to be hopeful in, especially with firms not ranked very high

This whole thing has made me completely paranoid. I'm even checking my spam filter on a regular basis.

I got the same e-mail and I am 100% certain that I gave them a transcript. Maybe it's a ploy to gauge our interest and/or response time. :twisted:

You figure your UG boosted you? That said, I assume you're treated as top third, which should be good for FF in and of itself.

I assume so yes. I've actually gotten a fair amount of dings from V50-V100 where I thought I would be most competitive.

Interesting. Did they ask lots of questions about your international experience at the interview?

I'm curious because I'm interviewing with them next week and they're one of my top choices. I'm international myself so I'm hoping there's truth to the rumblings that they love people with foreign backgrounds/experience.

question. do all firms formally reject people at some point? or do some firms not even bother to say thank you but no thank you?
