Transfer student. Interviewed with 12 firms so far, several listed in this thread, haven't received any callbacks whatsoever, and only update was the Clifford ding. Sigh.

No, they didn't. Dechert is interviewing for the EIP on August 16th. :?

Edit: If it was a pre-screen, why the hell are you posting about it in this thread.

So for the person who is not Kent/Stone but who has gotten several callbacks, what is your secret? Are you particularly charismatic? What is your primary market? Did you bid mainly for low ranked firms?

I bid conservatively, but my callbacks are in both the V-50 and V-100. It depends on how you view "low-ranked firms" (as in, if you think anything lower than the V-20 is "low-ranked"). And I have no idea - I felt very good about the interviews, and tried my best to be very personable and friendly. Who knows, my grades may ultimately kill me in the end.

Agreed, can anyone confirm Davis Polk or Milbank, or were those flames?

When you say you aren't Kent/Stone, are we talking 30-50% (top half) range, 50-75% (third quartile) or 75-99% (bottom quartile)? I bid conservatively as well V50-100 and haven't yet received any callbacks so I'm wondering what's going on.

I'm not sure what the median GPA is - can you provide it, and I'll let you know? Also, it could depend what partner you spoke with (some might be making callbacks next week, etc).

No one really knows what the median is right? About a 3.15-3.25 I'm guessing.

Anyone know what the deal is with Cleary? Can anyone confirm that they've made calls? One person posted that earlier.
