Has anyone heard back from their firms about start dates yet? If so, was it e-mailed or snail mailed?

Also interested in any follow-up from firms have made. What type of material do they send out (housing info, dress code guidelines, etc)? My firms sent out care packages for finals, but otherwise it's been radio silence so far. Also, do firms pay travel expenses for SA gigs?

I know a couple of people who have received their program dates via email. I have not.

They told me my start date during the interview. Haven't had any further correspondence yet though.

Guys, don't worry. It's normal to be anxious because all anyone talks about is deferrals, layoffs, and the lack of jobs. But if you got the offer, you've got the offer. You're secure. Try to relax. Every other law student in your position feels the same way; the simple truth is, from the firm's point of view, recruiting was a pain in the ass that they're glad to have over, and they're going to focus on other things until it becomes necessary to focus on recruiting again. As the summer gets closer, they definitely will contact you, but there's certainly nothing inappropriate contacting them to nail down necessary things like start dates.

Agree 100%. FWIW, I called my firm the other day (V30) to inquire about start dates, and they were incredibly nice and forthcoming. I got my start dates, as well as the number of weeks options, and they said they'll be emailing everyone in a few weeks, but feel free to call them with any other questions.
