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

good luck everyone!


Work experience? Also, what practice areas did you evince an interest in, if any?

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


Nice, thanks. Congrats on having enough c/bs to get an offer according to the rule of 3s.

Really interested in hearing if any Chicago 3Ls can comment on how call backs and such went - from the Who Worked Where list, it seems like a significant majority of the class ended up working at a large firm. I know last year was bad, so there has to be some hope at the end of this tunnel... right?

I know someone who got a Neal Gerber CB. I can't remember exactly when it happened, but I think it was only a day or two after the screening interview.

Okay, I kind of set myself up for confusion there. Do you actually have a callback or just giving me my requested rumor? If actual CB, when did the call come?

Just so I can keep my booze tab relatively low this weekend, does it not seem like a significant # of Chicago firms haven't done CBs yet? Or is this just wishful thinking (requiring wishful drinking) on my part? We had like 40something Chicago firms at OCI, but I'm only seeing reports of CBs by a handful on here so far.
