Anyone have any sense how closely the callback/offer numbers will mirror last year? Looking at the spreadsheet for some of my CBs freaks me out a little...


I'm looking at other years too, for reference. It seems fairly unclear - some firms are quite different last year as opposed to other years. But, remember that last year was full of layoffs, so we may have a better shot this year. Plus, theoretically the firms should figure out at some point how many CBs to make for the number of offers they want to give in the current economy, so that might help us on the CB -> offer ratio.

You're right- I hope so.

Not HLS here, another boston school. Our OCI doesn't give that kind of data -- just out of curiosity, can you share some of the numbers you're getting from HLS for boston firms? Obviously won't match up at my school, but might give me a sense of what to expect or not.

Thanks very much!


which firms are you interested in?

One of the firms I haven't heard from (but other classmates have) had two associates interviewing me and no partners. Other students had a partner and an associate. Is this a bad sign? Do partners have a lot more sway in terms of pushing for an an interviewee to get a callback? I thought the interview went well, and I think I have the grades, so I'm worried about not hearing anything.

I absolutely HATED having associates interview me, the difference between an associate and a partner is that an associate will not want to look bad so they will advocate for the people with the best grades, the partners can overlook average grades and advocate for you if they feel you are a good fit. Associates don't have the balls to advocate for anyone, they just find the best transcript and push that. Two of my three CB were solely attributed to a partner liking my personality because I clearly did not have the grades....

Thanks. My interviewers never seem to be the people who have notified posters in this thread.

Doubt this is true, even for firms. And has anyone heard back at all from any of the public service interviewers yet?
