They are probably yield protecting.


McDermott was within my personal top 10 firms I'd like to work at. I'm definitely starting to get frustrated.

Legitimately fucking terrifying.

No it's not. I was top 10% last year, 7 CBs out of 16 firms, and I got dinged from both of those as well as several other in that stratum. Of the seven CBs, four were V10, and one was V10 regional office. Katten and McDermott don't think you're going to work there.

Ding from MWE. Callback from Winston. No word from anyone else. Good luck all!
(Grades right below average but with huge upward progress over the quarters. Journal also.)

Can't speak to dings but I was both called and snailed mailed a CB invite, so I assume they probably snail mailed their dings.

Also, received a snail mail Hughes Hubbard rejection.

Wachtell CB late this afternoon. Not even on LR, so this is a pretty huge (and awesome) shock.

Wouldn't be bad if people received CBs/dings they knew for a fact were sent out, even if they personally weren't on the receiving end.

Heard from friends on LR that they have heard from Mayer, Latham and Neal Gerber in Chi. Let's hope this doesn't mean death knell for the rest of us!
