not quite (almost) but plenty of people in top 20% and even some beyond are least getting a callback, and I can't imagine it is so much worse just beyond T-50.

probably not in a major market--lower ranked schools do best when they are not in the same geographic area as top 20 schools

actually, lots of kids in top 10% at least get callbacks in NYC. Offers we have yet to see, though there have already been a few. Actually better than I expected. Local market is actually more difficult in some ways.

School Ranked: 90-100 (bottom Tier 1)
Stats: Top 11%, no LR, good work experience

About 17 screening interviews, 2 callbacks so far, and waiting to hear back from about 4-5 firms. 1CB = rejection, other is next week. Mid-size market (not NYC, DC, etc.)

School in the 70's, secondary market, strong in its region blah blah...
LR, top 10% (though just barely, probably), not much work experience
8 screening interviews
4 rejections
4 silence (to be fair I just interviewed with two of them this week)
E-mailed about 15 firms in my market last week, no responses so far

From talking to others my experience has not been atypical.

also school in 70's, with "strong regional presence" (heh)
top 10%, LR
extensive work experience

14 screening interviews (cancelled 3)
4 rejections (2 outstanding but are probably also dings)
5 callbacks (cancelled 1)
1 offer so far from regional biglaw

seems to me (from speaking to interviewers) that my WE definitely stood out

Tier 3 school in a secondary market with no other law schools, LR, top 5-10%.

OCI started within the last three weeks. 3 screeners so far, 4 more scheduled, one (possible) callback so far (see thread titled "Being Considered for Callback?"). No V100 firms at OCI. Ours is simply not that kind of market.

B/c the other option ("top 15%") shortchanges a top 11% GPA.
