Had an interview back in January, and I was told I'd hear by the end of February


A girl in my section (U of M) got an offer from Dorsey, not sure if she accepted it or not.


E-mail rejection from Dorsey today.

Rejected from Stoel, stilll haven't heard from Seattle Perkins (I'm not holding my breath). But I do have diversity interviews in Charlotte and Richmond over the next two weeks. Any advice/tips from people who have had interviews for diversity programs already?

Mine came by snail mail. It did at least include a callback for 2L hiring.

Anyone who interviewed with Perkins Seattle hear anything? I think they were supposed to get back either end of this week or some time next week.

Has anyone heard of good things happening in diversity SA positions for LGBT individuals? From what I can tell visible diversity is preferred by law firms, but since they're including LGBT what are the odds comparatively?

Every firm I've had a call-back with has extended their offer. I think this market is done. Looks like my SA journey is over...0/3 in Seattle. Talk about a humbling experience - ready to bring it for 2L OCIs.

For those of you who haven't received an offer from interviews/call backs/diversity positions, where do we go from here? Try to find an unpaid pro-bono job? How can we make the most of our summer if it looks like we're not getting the things we've wanted?

I mean, I get the feeling that it's rough to get those if you're not a UW student. Your flight risk that you go to a different market the next summer and then don't return is pretty damn high. If you truly want Seattle, though, this should really help reaffirm your interest for 2L OCI.

I thought this too, until I asked and discovered that the people who received two of the offers were from Cornell and UVA, respectively. I have significant ties to the area - I think it came down to grades.
As far as I know, UW faired poorly with 1L SAs this year.

Did both have astonishing grades or something? I was above median at YHS and only got a screener/callback from one. Nothing from the rest. I grew up in the area.
