When was your callback? Also, what school, if you don't mind me asking?



No callback, just a post-screening ding that took a while. I am at NU.


I got a Schiff ding 2 weeks after the callback. My sense is that they are hurting real bad.

Still waiting here. I know a guy who has been given a post-CB rejection, however. Wildman is cool, but I wonder if they are a little unstable and perhaps shaping up to merge. 3 offers from 17 SAs a year ago is also scary. Still, a job is a job, especially in this economy.


Any word from Wildman? I still have nothing and my callback was a long time ago.

Any updates on PH? My callback was many weeks ago and I haven't heard anything. I am also under the impression that they are not the type of firm to send out dings at the end of the process. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Congrats!



Thank you sir/ma'am. First response of 5 CBs - everything from here on is a bumper crop.



Can you please share when you had your CB, and with which practice you interviewed?



Sorry for the late reply. Had the CB exactly 2 weeks before the offer was made (9/10) and I interviewed with their corporate practice group.

Does it seem like they're just going to send one giant batch of rejects?

The steak was a little overcooked, but still juicy. I didn't care for the salad though, too much vinegar. Overall, a good meal.
