great to see that someone who can manage to get a callback from a top firm is still inconsiderate enough to leave out the interviewer's initials, despite much pleading on this thread already.

Yikes, sorry for not including interviewer. To be honest, I just forgot.

transfer. ny/chi targeted. some w/e. 13 interviews, 1c/b (V15)(ny), 2 rejections (one v15, one v50, both ny). targeting litigation. probably dumb to announce an interest but there you have it.

If these firms are doing callbacks in waves, I think we should all be more diligent about reporting dings. Here's what I have:

Katten (Chi) -- email -- 08/30
McDermott (Chi) -- email -- 08/31
Debevoise (NYC) -- snail -- 09/02
Schiff (Chi) -- snail -- 09/03

I was told yesterday by one of my references that C&B (DC) is beginning to make calls to said references. I would imagine that means we'll hear from them sometime next week or so.

Anybody heard from WLRK interviewer AN?

Slightly below median
23 screening interviews
6 rejections, 3CBs (1 V30, 2 V60)

Way better than expected. Maybe I am a strong interviewer.

good luck everyone!

No full-time WE, but I got some cool experiences/stories in my sash.

Thanks for the 'grats. I'm rooting for everyone. Also, fully confident that in a class as brilliant and personable as ours, everyone will find something good.
