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.

Out of curiosity, how long after the dinner did you get a CB? I've also heard of people getting CBs without getting dinner invites (in years past), so I'm curious if I should cling to hope or not.

Hate to harp on this, but what location are you referring to? Is this Gibson NY that you got a callback for without going to dinner?

Add O'Melveny to the list of dings via email.

Edit: I was under the impression that Gibson DC was the one that had the "secret dinner."

Gibson NY. I got the call the same night as the day when I had my interview. Call was by my interviewer, not recruiting.

3 of those are Dechert, KS, and SRZ. Perhaps Proskauer. Right?


Incorrect on all but one. And I was dinged by KS, actually.

Close-ish. But honestly, I think a lot of these firms are looking for more than grades. I don't really buy into the GPA cutoff anymore aside from the obvious firms (Wachtell, Cravath, etc.). Median people, have faith!

Has anyone that interviewed with PL at Kaye Scholer been dinged or called back yet? It's killing me!
