There is still some action. I got my only V100 offer this week after being pretty much rejected immediately from my other callbacks.

Hmm. I wonder how long the hold list is at most firms.
It most likely varies by firms, but if I had to guess, it would be about 2:1 ratio (2 waitlists per spot).

Still waiting on a cb given two weeks ago. I feel like if they were still interviewing at that point, there can't be anybody left to call back who hasn't accepted other offers already. Of course with my luck they'll hate me enough to dip into the thousands of mass mailings they probably have.

I felt the same way. Before I got my offer, I was so stressed out that I would wonder if the interviewers disliked me so much that they would decide not to have a summer class at all.

Same exact situation here. I definitely feel like the last puppy at the pound.

I was on hold for about a month, and I called the recruiter at my top choice. They basically were really upfront about it and told me exactly what they were waiting on. They called me with an offer about 2 weeks later- and specifically mentioned that I had said I would accept right away. So, I don't think it hurts to call and check in (and convince them you'd take it.)

Here's hoping. How big or small was the firm's summer class?

What did you say when you called? I've also been on hold for a month but have no clue what I'd even say if I tried to call the firm at this point

Still waiting on one firm. Six weeks now. Know of rejections and offers there nearly a month ago. Have emailed and called recruiter to no response. Fantastic.

Gauging my eyes out. I've been patient up until now, but I've reached the breaking point and am angry.

Keep your heads up guys, it's absolutely important to be persistent.

It took me 1.5 month to get an answer because the slut who was administrating the records lost of them, i called them like 1.5 month after and the Partner remembered me, reviewed everything himself and i got the job at McCarthy & Tetrault.

If you get rejected, keep applying, Firms love motivation, i know many, many friends who got an offer after applying 3-6 times to the same firm.

You just outed yourself and called an employee who works there a "slut."

Not smart.

Really? Mind sharing which market? It seemed like all the major market firms were wrapping up.

I'm not the same poster you quoted, but I had a screening interview last week with a Dallas firm, and I have a call-back this week with a small Austin firm. The big firms seem to have wrapped it all up, but there are a few stragglers scraping the bottom of the law review rungs.
