Mind sharing stats?
I am at Nova Rutgers Temple top 3%, LR, very good ug, and well above average interviewer. Had a callback with them last week. Told me I would hear next Friday. It is good to hear they are actually sticking with that schedule.
The rest of my Philly callbacks(the market I actually want) have been silent. With one more to come.

Rejection from Drinker too. I agree. They were not people I would want to spend time with. They also may have sensed my lack of enthusiasm for their apprenticeship model.

Assuming you were notified today (Monday)? Also, were you notified by snail mail? My classmates report rejections by both snail mail and email.

FWIW, the recruiting coordinator told me that they won't be making decisions until they've interviewed everyone, and that their last callback is scheduled for the 1st week of Oct.

So the word around Penn is that a few people are getting a lot of the Philly CBs. How is it around Temple, Nova and Rutgers?
