I've a Jenner offer and will share: I'm basically median, went to a no-name/regional undergrad (did well but is not nationally known), have some legal work experience (and a lot of community service work experience), and am not on a journal.

Hope that is helpful. :wink:

Still waiting to hear back from 4 Chicago OCI firms. When I call the legal recruiting departments, I just leave messages that never get returned.

I saw Kirkland at a job fair 6 wks ago and still have not heard back (either rejection or callback). If I cared, I would be upset. If they cared, they probably would have let me know what they had decided. :P

I interviewed on Tuesday and was told I would hear "very soon because the committee is meeting soon" - now Thursday is done, I wonder if I'm out?

Fried Frank and Debevoise, both 1 to 2 day turnarounds. NY is such a stronger market than Chicago this year.
