1. can also confirm A&O - and that resume drops work! Dropped of my resume, spoke with an associate at the hospitality suite, was given an extra interview at 5:30, and received a callback today. This is the second interview I got through resume drops/hospitality suite schmoozing.

2. what's the average number of callbacks that people have, or hear others have, at this point? I get the feeling that the number of callbacks has been quite low...hopefully tomorrow and friday will be the big day.

I have 5. I'm around the median. I know some people with 12 and others with 0. Hard to tell why some people are cleaning up while others strike out. I think that everyone will have a better idea of where they stand by Friday.

12?! That's insane have that many places even made callbacks?

I have 6 but no idea how it compares really.

Wait, EIW started this Monday, right? I'm shocked that so many firms are already calling people back.

Yeah, it's nuts. Granted, the person I know with 12 has amazing grades. I think if your credentials are stellar, the top firms are aggressively competing for you -- even ITE.

1) Large NYC firms move fastest to callbacks, in my experience. Every V10/PW/Deb callback I received or heard of came within 48 hours. Boies Schiller was the only big NYC shop that dragged its feet. NYU has an overwhelming focus on large NYC firms.

2) NYU has a condensed interview program. Other schools in the T14 spread the interviews out more evenly several weeks such that even people who will eventually have the most callbacks received them more piecemeal. It makes the comparisons on TLS difficult.

3) NYU and Columbia in particular get enormous numbers of callbacks from the major NYC firms - they feed into them, the callbacks are cheap, the firms are stuffed with people already from those schools, etc.

Is it really that shocking? 24-48 hours, while not ironoclad, seems to be the general rule when it comes to callbacks.

And 12 is crazy. I assume this person must be LR, top 10%, etc.

I've also received two full callbacks through resume drops / hospitality suites.

Jesus. This year is brutal. I'm not holding out much hope.

Did NYU really place 70% last year? Or is that stat bogus, like the CLS one?
