Would you mind listing all the OC firms that came to Davis so I can compare to Hastings? Thanks a ton.

Evidently Hanson Bridgett is only hiring 2 SAs this year, down from their usual 8. This doesn't bode well for any of us who interviewed with them.

One of my friends and I both interviewed with them (D), and she asked/he told her. Shame too, the interviewer seemed like an awesome guy and I'd love to work there.

most firms are hiring significantly fewer SA's. Morgan Lewis typically hired 60 SA's firm-wide during the middle of the decade. This year they are hiring 6-8.

Hastings: I've received a few rejections (firms already mentioned in this thread) and mostly silence from the rest. A few asked for some additional information via email (writing samples, transcripts, etc. that they did not request during the OCI bidding process) but nothing since then.

Some firms told me that I shouldn't expect to hear back from them until the end of September. I suppose we're backups.
