I don't think CLS/NYU are useful reference points since NYC recruiting depts didn't need to fly out to interview there. Since I imagine that distance slows down the turn around and NU is about as far away from NYC as Chi is, I hope that perhaps your turnaround will be more indicative of what we can expect.

Anyone? Bueller?


3 CBs in NYC. Heard from all of them the second day after the interview (eg: Tue -> Thurs) in late afternoon.

Gotcha. Thanks so much, and good luck with your CBs.

NY offices of the big firms seemed to make callbacks within a few days.

I'm just very surprised that the vast majority of us has heard absolutely nothing. I've received 1 CB and I'm majorly in the minority it seems. And God knows I didn't do half as well as people still waiting to hear a single peep from these firms.

Sigh. Thank you.

a) I can't believe no one went with "samezies"
b) I think there were probably just that few slots.

Same. I think it might not have updated yet because it doesn't say I'm on the waitlist for the firms I bid on.

How long does it take to get a response about an offer after a callback in Chicago?

So what seems to be the norm on the average # of callbacks? I have received 15. I only discuss callbacks with a very small circle of friends. Of the ppl that I havespoken with, they seem to only have one or they have ten or more.

Most people I know have 0-2. It's kind of ridiculous.

I have 3, but all three were reaches for me, so I am not sure how much good it will do me. I've go no love so far from my supposed targets and safeties.

Those are the trends I've seen -- people either strike it rich, or strike out. The only ones I've personally seen who might actually be in the median (5-8?) are folks who may be a bit of a GPA stretch but evidently interview extremely well and/or have desirable experience.

It also seems like more than a few of the almost-strike-outs get called back to a reach and get nothing from their safer bets. I don't know if it's enough to call it a trend, but I've heard that from multiple people.
