Thanks for the info. But I wonder more about Hughes Hubbard, Dewey, Sidley and Sheppard NYC offices. It seems like most of us have been getting radio silence, which is kinda strange, considering how quickly NYC is supposed to move.

I am starting to worry that the late OCI might screw us this year.

Why so? From the little that I've seen of CBs scheduled at other schools - I'm mostly thinking of CLS right now - lots of firms tend to call people in around the second week of September, by which point we will have ended our OCI.

But I suppose I see your point. Schools have pushed up their OCI dates en masse, and there's gotta be a reason for that. It's kinda reminiscent of states pushing up their primaries in presidential elections to gain as much advantage as possible.

Will firms give additional callbacks to other people later in the cycle, even though that firm has already called back an initial wave of students immediately after OCI?

Stats?


Probably right at top 20%, maybe 25%, no journal. Knew both these interviews went really well.

No. If you had the same interviewer as someone else who received a callback already, you will either get a callback the same day, or not get a callback at all.

Those appear to have gone around a lot.

Has anyone heard from Sidley NYC?

I have it from a good source that some Cravath callbacks have happened this (Monday) morning. Not sure how this jibes with the earlier post indicating they'd already gone out.

I think the Simpson CBs were given out by the male interviewer, correct? Anybody hear anything from the woman? Or should I just assume a ding either way?
