Sorry to hear that.

Would you mind sharing when you applied (rough range like early Jan or by Jan 15 or something is fine)

Thanks.

Same here. Out of state T14 w/strong ties. Nothing substantive from perkins coie, stoel rives, tonkon torp, dwt, etc.

I'll post here if I hear anything.


Trying to reduce the ambiguity...movement with DWT. Anything from the other firms?


apparently tonkon is on the move.

thanks, sooo nervous. I want this job so bad. I've met/know about 6 of the partners that work there (none of whom interviewed me though) so we'll see if connections are able to play favorably.

don't you have some firm interviews for spring OCI?

Do you mean they lead to an offer for 2L and then an offer for full time? If you didn't work for them again for 2L would they really give an offer for full time? (I really have no idea, just wondering.)

right, mine said they would invite most people from the diversity fellowship back for a 2L SA (if you proved yourself on the job that is) which would most likely lead to a full time offer because with the economy and all the firm is trying to hire less but "higher quality" SAs that they can keep on for full time positions and who want to stay at the firm. IDK but I would bet other firms are taking the same approach to save money

not sure about the second part of your Q

Someone in one of my classes is splitting his 2L summer (part with his 1L SA firm, not sure if diversity, and part with another firm). Seems like the ideal thing to do if you do end up getting a 1L SA and the firms are okay with splitting.

Sounds promising, hope you get it!

I got a bunch of interviews in and out of OCI, but until I get an offer, it's still not much to go on.

Snail mail dings from Wachtell just started rolling out. I think they've made some positive movement too, but this is based on speculation (and hence, possibly incorrect speculation).
