Eh, if you interviewed exclusively with V 75-100, then I suppose you just might!

I emailed and called. Partner wrote back, "calm the fuck down, we'll let you know in a few weeks after going to a few local OCIs" not his exact words, but the general message. not kidding.

I don't think any firms fail to send rejection letters to candidates they interviewed. Some are slower than others, but I haven't heard of anybody just not being dinged.

Maybe if you're lucky you'll be put on their waitlist. You'd better hope it's their secret priority waitlist, though, and not the standard waitlist that is more like a soft rejection.

To answer the OP's question: Jones Day and WilmerHale will sometimes not bother to even send you a rejection letter.

I think at least JD SF has been pretty good about sending out rejection letters this year- probably they need to reject too many people for their Bay Area offices anyways.

I was just fooling around. If I were to get even half of that then not only would I be ecstatic, but half of them probably would not be V100 CBs. My school doesn't have a whole lot of the Vault firms coming to campus, so I'm hoping for maybe 4 V100 CBs to give myself a solid chance. 1 V75 and 1 V50 CB so far and a bunch more screeners to go so Im on track for my own goal.

3L here. Baker McKenzie never bothered to send me a rejection letter last year. Either that or it got lost in the mail.
