Any offers? How long after callbacks are offers generally received?

Anyone have any news? It's been a couple of weeks now, and nothing here.

Same kind of deal - two partners, two associates - but more substantive questions (about various legal issues) than I've been asked elsewhere.

Thanks man, are substantive legal questions tied into stuff from your resume or are they kinda random?

Not random. I was invited to talk about issues I was interested in, and then quizzed in more detail.

I haven't heard of offers - has anyone?

They told me they like to see everyone from School X before making offers to people at X.

Bump. I'm interested too, I thought they were waiting until Monday to make HLS offers.

Congrats on the offer!

Interviewed late last week. They told me that I should expect to hear next Monday as well, but was pleasantly surprised by the early response.

Do you mind sharing your stats? Percentage rank?

Do you have any tips on interviewing with them? I'm a 1L at HLS and want to know how I can maximize my chances of getting into that firm (yes, I know it's a crap shoot even under the best of circumstances).

I mass mailed Wachtell in early July and got an invitation to come up for interviews just last week. Had already accepted at another firm. Bummer.

Good luck! Let's hope a letter isn't already on the way.
