EDIT:

Do you know this because you got one when you posted or are they going to be continuing to tomorrow?


Oops - sorry for not responding earlier. I posted that immediately after receiving a call.

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.

Wow that is a quick turn around. I guess I won't be waiting too long for my ding from Katten either then because I had probably the worst interview of my entire interview season with one of their attorneys.

Please tell the person with the Wildman offer to either accept or reject as soon as possible. There's probably only a couple of offers going out at a time because they are only hiring 3 or 4 SAs, so he/she is keeping the rest of us in painful suspense.

Has anyone received an offer from Sidley at this point? For the amount of people they said they are looking to take this summer it has been extremely quiet...

Sidley is always pretty slow making summer offers.

Interesting...it's also the only place I've been where no one else was there for a callback the same day. I wonder if that means they are more conservative with the amount of people they bring in. (But I'm really just trying to speculate and convince myself I have a good shot at this point though.)

My day was pretty quiet too.

What week were you there?


FWIW, someone in the Northwestern thread said they received an offer ~1 week post CB.

Anyone get a Katten offer Friday or today? From past posts it sounded like they gave out some on Thurs.

I can confirm at least 10-15 offers have gone out. That is just at my school.
