Heard from people that they sent out similar emails last year to people basically on their waitlist while they wait to see who accepts offers. Really got my hopes up; the email was so vague as to what was going on - did i have an offer? were they saying they'd be in touch soon? It's a shitty economy, they could do me the courtesy of being explicit.
Getting sick of being jerked around by firms. Interviewed at firm, that subsequently made offers to other people, where the hiring partner emailed me after the interview to say I'd be a "perfect fit" at the firm...a month later haven't heard crap, and like I said I know they made other offers.
Wow. Talk about a frustrating email. Any word from people who got it last year regarding success in eventually landing an offer? I never got that email, but I know people dinged far earlier that interviewed around the same time as me. Sounds like I interviewed a little after you, I gotta think/hope I'm in a similar limbo situation.
Hang in there -- you're not alone.
