What's your offer:callback success rate?

Career services told me that once you get a callback, you should have a > 50% shot at landing a job...um, no.

I'm surprised your CSO was so bold.

My cb to offer ratio was <50%, but the specific firms were consistent with their own cb to offer ratios from previous years. I got offers from firms that gave out 75-100% offers to people they extended offers to last year, and I didn't get offers from firms that were known to give 10+ cbs and 0-2 offers.

UVA 4/6, 66%

From people I've talked to, it's definitely feast or famine. I know a lot of people who are 0/5 and a lot of people who are like 7/10.

1 offer, 1 rejection, 2 withdrawals.

I heard that last year slightly less than 50% of callbacks resulted in offers, but obviously that doesn't mean everyone with a callback has a 50% chance at an offer. Some people, for whatever reasons, will do well at the callback stage, while others will not.

Bit surprising considering that UVA is preselect. I'd expect the culling to happen at the screening stage.

Most of the people I know are top third or so, so I think it's really about personality.

My guess is the bottom half or so was culled at the preselect/callback stage.

9 offers of 10 callbacks

3/3 in secondary market
6/7 in NYC

Note that the 1 rejection is from an interview that I thought went really well and at least 2 of the offers came after interviews that I thought went horrendously. Weird how things work out.
