Sorry, no -- but I did get rejected by Hunton the other day. So maybe you're still in the running?

Anyone hear anything in the last week or so from any of the following (all DC):

Goodwin
Baker Botts
Fried Frank
Sutherland
Wiley

I know people have heard from these firms since OCI. Just wondering if there has been any recent news from any of them.

Just wrote to Baker Botts to follow up and they emailed back apologizing for the delay and rejecting me.

Any offer news?

BTW, did anyone get a Winston & Strawn callback or rejection? I don't remember if anyone posted in the thread about it.

Anyone care to estimate what % of people ended up with market paying (for whatever market) firm gigs? CP&P says that like 75% of 2L's work for firms but I am a skeptical panda.

Which one of the idiots in CP&P told you that?

That math doesn't make sense. More than the bottom 1/4 is not getting firm work this summer, and that doesn't take into account people above bottom 1/4 that don't want firm work to begin with. And there's no way those are all market paying firm jobs.

Honestly, I don't know anyone that doesn't think CP&P sucks ass.

CP&P is awful. I was having trouble finding a 1L summer job, so I stopped by. Their advice? "Apply to more places." No shit. That's why I was there -- I wanted advice on WHERE to apply. So I said that. Their response? "Uh... judges? Firms? I don't know, just apply to everything you see."

No one should get paid for that.

Varily, is it that difficult to get a 1L summer job? I've been holding out for better but perhaps I should accept the one offer I have in hand soon.
