Withdrawing applications

Postby Doritos » Sat Feb 12, 2011 12:44 pm

So I applied to maybe 150-200 offices, all NALP. I also applied for some diversity stuff. I am fortunate enough to have a job lined up but am unsure how I should proceed as far as all these apps that I have out. Should I send a formal withdrawal of my application? I would like to avoid the awkward phone call trying to set up an interview when I already have a job. Also, I don't want to take up hiring people's time when they could be looking at other fine candidates. Thoughts?

Don't do anything. If anyone calls, simply say - sorry, I've already accepted a position, but I hope to have a chance to interview with y'all during OCI (or some crap like that).

TCR. Before 2L OCI I did a shitton of mailings. That was almost 6 months ago, and I've since accepted a position. Responses (mostly form "no" letters) continue to roll in. :lol:

Firms know what they're doing when it comes to hiring. You're not "taking up" their time nor disadvantaging other candidates.
