+1. It'll be F-ing weak if we don't get any CBs.

Has anyone started receiving rejections? I got one by e-mail from Kasowitz, and the rest of the firms (mostly Philadelphia) haven't responded at all.

No CBs or rejections through Penn OCI. Not looking promising for any callbacks, so gonna have to nail the one I got my own.

However, I do know a kid with 6 NYC callbacks as of last night. (not on law review)

Congrats! All you need is one.

No, but I'm also waiting for both of those. I think Ballard said that they usually get back quickly.

Market? grades?

Despite what many are saying, I don't think this year's OCI is that much better than last year's...

I've had 20 or so interviews, 1 cb. Top 1/3, secondary journal, DC primarily. It's been an ugly week for me.

:( Yeah, I don't know where everyone is getting all of this optimism, unless they are IP or top 10%. Here's to hoping we rock the callbacks we get!

I second the gloom and doom. I'm a little better than top 33%, and on LR. I've had 20+ screenings, with only 1 callback.

I had about 15 interviews from OCR with no callbacks and 1 rejection so far. I do have 1 callback from outside of OCR. Top 35-40% and secondary journal.
