No offers yet for two of the firms. Snail mail dings from the other two.

West Coast was just death imo. I had around 20 interviews and zero callbacks.

Top 20-25%, some WE, no LR (secondary journal). 15 CBs--went on 8 and will do 1 more, canceled the rest. Offers from 3 so far, declined one of those offers and withdrew myself from consideration from one of the CBs. On hold with one firm (CBs at 2 offices) and waiting on two others (been two days for one, more than a week for the other). Focused mainly on LA and one other large non-DC/NY market.

Good luck everyone! Don't get so crazy hung up on being in DC. If you have any remote regional ties to smaller markets, now is the time to work those.

I don't really know. I just tend to interview well... just smile and agree with everything they say... no big secret

I'm relaxed and confident, and I joke around - well-played humor goes over very well with the right people.

Being nice to look at doesn't hurt, either. I'm not at all surprised that people in the attractive/athletic crowd are swimming in callbacks, or at least have more than their grades would warrant.
