Had an early callback and got an offer letter on the spot. It is my impression that if you have a callback, it will almost always lead to an offer (unless you seriously screw up).

This sounds right. I can't independently confirm, but last year S&C gave offers to 18/20 callbacks. That indicates they're just checking to make sure you don't drool on yourself.

7 was just a shot in the dark. I figured on average about 20 interviews and a 1/3 callback rate is about 7. That's actually more than I have so don't feel bad.

I know this is largely in jest, but to answer this general question seriously, I really think it depends on the firm.

Some firms (S&C, STB, Irell) seem to make offers to virtually everyone they call back. Other firms make offers to fewer than a third of their callbacks.

I think it really depends on what mix you have. Even if you only have 2 of the former type, you are probably pretty much set. On the other hand, even if you have 4 or even 5 of the latter type, you might be on shaky ground.

Sorry no data.

H&B (Dallas) was 3/4 and H&B (DC) was 0/1.

Is Kirkland being 10/10 last year just a fluke or is the call back really just a formality?

My first cb went pretty terrible as well, so now I'm down to three. Sh*t.

If you got calls from those 100% firms, then rest easy. The firms that didn't offer 100% last year are tougher to speculate about. Class sizes are going to be bigger this year, and I bet they've done a better job of actually calculating how many people they need this year. So, who knows. If you have more than 3 or so, you can probably bag at least 1 offer.
