Thanks. That's a pretty useful PSA.

So far via snail mail I've gotten about 10 dings and 2 "We'll keep your resume on file for a few months and let you know if we're into you"-type letters. This PSA cheered me mightily.

willkie farr does a snail mail callback followup -- they call first and tell you, then mail a letter to confirm.

Do any firms give snail mail callbacks without also calling? I haven't seen that.

A buddy of mine got a Wilkie CB via phone for the NY office. Doesn't mean that none of the offices do snail mail CBs, though.

For 1L OCI I got a snail mail callback from Orrick NY. It looked just like all the other rejections. It told me to call them.
