I'd say a good portion of the people with multiple offers are probably top 1/3 or higher, but I also know a good number of people below median with a lot of callbacks (more than 5) and with more than one offer already.

Yea.... my school is a teensy bit weaker than Columbia, hehe. Btw, Booya can you tell your classmates to stay out of Boston? K, thx. I keep having flashbacks to that South Park Episode - "They took our jobs!" I only say this because during the callback I was on I met a Columbia guy doing the same.


Well, I only bid on NYC, so I will not be taking your jerb.

I've been jokingly calling transfers Goobacks.

I guess you can thank Bush and Obama for bailing out all the NYC banks and thus indirectly giving law firms money to hire SAs in NYC. The rest of the country seems to be struggling.


um... ok.


just tellin it like it is


Fairly unnecessarily so. No one gives a shit why NYC is hiring, so long as it is.

Our OCI appears to be going rather badly but it's too early to judge.

Oh, I am glad things are going well! I mean, you go to CLS, so of course they are, but it's still good to hear positive, happy news, especially as it concerns people further down in the class.

(Rayiner gets mad if I denigrate my academic performance, but it wasn't good enough. I won't get a large firm job ITE, but I would have been pretty miserably unhappy in one. I have something very good for the school year, so I'll be fine.)

To Dres: TITCR regarding NYC hiring. I hope things pick up very soon for you guys!
