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


Northwestern or U of Chi I'm guessing?


Yes. NU.

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.


Roughly a week ago now, not comfortable narrowing it down more than that though.

Recruitment coordinator told me as she was escorting me out that the hiring committee meets on Tuesdays and that they'll be discussing summer associates for the first time at the meeting tomorrow (assuming everything goes according to plan - this was a week and a half ago).

Who did the offer come from? The same person who invited you for the callback?

I know of one person who got a Winston DC offer, but she was a SCOTUS clerk and accepted a partner offer.

If you look above, someone reported an offer this tuesday after having a CB last week.

Looks like the recruiting committee meets on monday.

I don't know about that, I've tracked down every tiny piece of info I can about Sidley offers and it seems like they have come basically a week after callbacks. I haven't really seen any pattern which would make me think the decisions are made on Monday, otherwise I would have heard back positively or negatively by now it seems. I could be wrong though if you have some inside info.

From my own experience I would say they meet either Monday or Tuesday.
