Katten Muchin callback last week, offer today. (I'm not the same poster who claimed they give offers after a week, but my experience corroborates his/her claim)

Confirmed, also received a Katten offer this morning.

Thanks! The call was from the original OCI interviewer. He was the one that called to extend the callback, and he also called to extend the offer.

I was told on the phone today by Jenner that the firm was having a dinner on the 29th for those that they extended an offer, so I don't know how many offers Jenner will be making post-29th. Don't know if that helps anyone.

What did you guys think of Jenner? I was actually kind of disappointed when I went to the callback. The interviews were unexpectedly awkward (compared to other ones I've had). Was this also your experience?

overall, i liked it, but had a similarly awkward encounter during lunch. my lunch interviewers just didn't talk unless they were answering a question. it was weird. the other interviewers were friendly though.

are you still waiting to hear back?

Yes, but it hasn't been that long since my callback (less than a week). I'm not sure how interested I am in them anymore though, which is unfortunate because I really liked them beforehand.

That's a shame. It's crazy how much of an impact the office visits have on this whole process, but better to figure this all out now then later, I guess.

If you don't mind posting, what were the initials of the partners that interviewed you? (or the other person that got the katten offer)?

Original Jenner Poster: I didn't really have any awkward moments. One of the guys on my lunch was slightly awkward, but I chalked that up (fairly or not) to him being IP. My lunch was great -- lasted almost two hours and was really just a long conversation between the three of us. On the whole, I really enjoyed it. Definitely one of my top choices. Hope you two receive or have received offers. Good luck with your other firms!

Jenner dinners are based on where you went to law school, are definitely not all at the same time, and I'm not sure if they only have one for each law school, so I wouldn't use them as a "you need to have heard by X" yardstick.

My Jenner lunch went really well. Both of the associates were really nice and personable. I had a great time. All of my interviewers at callback were extremely friendly and energetic. Sorry to hear that some of you guys had less than fantastic experiences...good luck to everyone else still waiting to hear back.

You guys had a lunch at Jenner? My cb did not include a lunch. Just 5 office interviews. I wonder what that means.

I also was kind of unimpressed with the people I met. I liked 3 of them, but the other 2 were just kind of odd and I did not really enjoy talking with them.

From what I understand, morning interviews at Jenner include lunch, and afternoon interviews don't include anything.
