I have a feeling you're just fishing for someone to say "With 5 CB's, you'll definitely get at least 1 offer!" I understand the anxiety, but you should probably just wait until you start getting rejections to freak out.

I dunno, there's a lot of silence everywhere. I'm starting to worry too.

+1. 6 CBs (2 DC, 2 NYC, 2 smaller regional markets) in the past 3 weeks with 0 news, good or bad. OP, I feel your pain.

Gone are the days that they pitted attorneys to the death with each other with swords and/or guns.

so, you probably werent fast-tracked for acceptance or rejection, and they're keeping you around until some of their ppl with offers drop them and make room for you. wait it out - itll work out buddy :)

what do we do if we in fact don't receive offers? I am serious here. Is there another thread that i can't find where this isn't covered. What are realistic options with 200,000 debt?

10 years + IBR for the government/non-profit or 25 years + IBR in the private sector. duh. But if by realistic options you mean other ways to pay the debt off quickly then there are none.

Relax. I had a two week gap between cb and offer after a perfect interview experience. This has been common amongst my friends.

Nah, dood. My offers varied from 5 days to 14 days. Most were closer to 14 days.

With 5 CB's, you'll definitely get at least 1 offer! Or not and you're fucked!

Lolz.

Also: firms should have status checkers like law schools have for admissions...
