Great list! Add White & Case (LA) and Cahill to the callback list.

Of the unconfirmed, I can personally confirm Covington (NY), Kirkland (NY), A&P (NY), Ropes (NY), and Cahill, FWIW.

Can we be clear about locations; is this Jones Day NYC? Has anyone heard (dings or CB) from other offices of theirs?

Edit: White and Case DC rejection received today.

Supposedly Gibson had a dinner, so I'm assuming I have an unofficial ding from them. Steptoe and Hogan have made CBs.

I got a Gibson CB without being invited to the dinner, and in past years I have heard of people who were invited to the dinner getting dinged, so I don't think it necessarily guarantees CB or ding.

Cravath was phone call from partner. If you post non-anon I'll PM the interviewer.

How many people have heard from Sullivan? Is it likely I'll get called back from Cravath, but not from Sullivan?
