Wow... same day as your callback! That's awesome. Do they allow you to do the second half of the summer if you split?

Oops... I'm sorry, I misread your question, obviously. The CB was last week.

Cool... still a decently quick turnaround.

So, do you know if V&E allows second half splits?

No, they don't. 6-10 weeks, and have to start with them.

That's what I thought, but it didn't say first half on NALP. Hope I get an offer either way.

Any news on JW? Rumor has it that JW mailed out letters yesterday (Wed. 9/22). Is it actually possible that they don't call but rather snail mail SA offers?

Any idea how many SAs Bracewell plans to have? I know that in Houston Bracewell offers a second-half program. Do they do likewise in Dallas?

Dallas is first half IIRC. I am guessing between 6-8 SAs

Could I trouble you for the time between callback and offer? Also, did the OCI interviewer call? Thanks!

I got an offer from them about a week ago (posted on this thread). Probably going to take the 2nd-half split with them, but haven't been able to respond to them yet for personal reasons. I feel bad, b/c they've been great in general, and I know I'm slowing them down (which I'm sure is frustrating to you guys too).

Will you spend your first half at a Big3? I have another second half offer, but was hoping to snag Locke Lord. I have a first half offer lined up.

I have a V&E offer too, but I may be turning it down for a firm closer to family (because of the same personal reasons). It's a really tough decision to make.

Dallas... though I would LOVE to go to Austin. It's a tough area to crack, and the work is pretty slow there, but it'd be worth it.

I know that a couple of JD Dallas offers have gone out. Hopefully, the others that interviewed last week will hear today. Is anyone seriously considering JD over either BB, FJ, or VE?
