Poll: Time Between Callback and Offer

Please list the *average* time between CBs and offers that you have experienced so far rounded to the nearest whole number or range listed in the poll.

Taking an average would be stupid. Some firms move heaven and earth to go some day, some firms will wait weeks (see last year's Skadden offer day). It also depends when you do the interview - sometimes early CBs will result in longer waits for news, etc.

You don't get along with other human beings very well, do you?

So few people outside of maybe CLS and NYU students at NY firms have gotten offers that you aren't going to get much here.

CLS student. It was about ~2 weeks for my offer. I had my CB with them in mid-August.

You don't like being told that your methods are stupid, do you?

My "methods" in general are stupid. After all, I decided to go to law school in 2009.

Patently false. There are plenty of offers at Cornell from NY firms.

I think it might be helpful for people to not only list their timeframe, but also what city the offer was made in. From what I've gathered, speeds vary by cities.

Average time without reference to GPA, market, Vault rank, bust size? This thread is going places.

Okay for the 2 offers I've received thus far, 1V50 and 1V100. The V50 was 2 days and the V100 was 1 day.
