It looks like only a handful of firms have offered NYU students. Most people don't have offers yet. Unless your callbacks were at the firms that have made offers, and you've already gone on those callbacks and not heard anything, I wouldn't be too worried.


Yeah, unless you're competitive at the 10 or so most competitive firms, and have already had CBs at them, I don't think you should worry yet.

Next day. May be an aberration but still seems worth trying.

Cleary CB is exactly the same as any other CB. You will meet w/ 4 attorneys, at least one of them being a partner. If they are waiting for people who aren't ready, an HR person will talk to you for a few minutes.

I did not get any substantive questions, although I imagine this type of thing goes interviewer by interviewer.

I think it's important to just be yourself at the Cleary callback. I didn't go into it trying to project a persona that wasn't true to form, and it worked for me. The 4th interview, at least for the morning callbacks, is over coffee with a younger associate. I'd treat this a little less formally than the others, but remember not to let your guard down since it's still an interview. Be prepared to ask questions of the interviewers (I'd say about 1/3 or more of each interview was asking questions of them, following up on those questions, etc.)

It seems to me, after the callback, that "fit" is important there. So just try to vibe with your interviewers!

Could the people who have offers at Davis Polk give a rough estimate of how long it took b/w the CB and offer? Anyone heard this week?

Ok... I set up a spreadsheet so we can keep track of all the callbacks / rejections. Please add firms you have heard from. This will help consolidate a lot of the information.

From a callback or from EIW?
