If you haven't heard anything for about a week, you should start expecting a rejection letter.


Depends on the firm. Some firms told me a month, but the interviews that went better said a week or two.


I've never heard of anyone getting a CB from the LPIP a month after screening interviews.

One of mine said it'd be a while because they want to hit up OCI before calling anyone back...

A firm I interviewed with said they won't be deciding till their 1L SAs have chosen whether to come back or not.

Either McAndrews or Marshall Gerstein for the 1L thing. Can't remember but I think it was McAndrews.

What are everyone's thoughts about hearing back from firms today? Think we will see a lot of action?

Personally, my thoughts are that I'll never hear back and I'll consequently end up living in a cardboard box after my LOLCI and tiny/overly competitive home markets are through shaming me, but hey, call me crazy for looking on the bright side.

My feeling is that there won't be much action (though maybe a little) till Thursday at the very earliest.

I sent a thank you email to one of the firms (OSNNM) I interviewed with, and they said it was a pleasure meeting with me and that I should hear back from them within the next couple of weeks. Hope that helps if you interviewed with them!

Are call backs actually uh... telephone call backs? I'd imagine they would follow up by email, right? I ask, not because I did that great and expect calls right away, but because my number has changed from the original resume to the updated one. Someone else has the old number now. I can easily see someone at a firm mistakenly calling the old number and leaving me a message there. But my email has remained the same.

Also, I am pretty sure I saw this asian girl get a telephone call back on Friday afternoon.

I have one that did a phone call-back, followed up by an email, but another one only left a voicemail message on Friday and did not follow up with an email.

In my experience last year, they split pretty evenly between phone calls and emails, although even the emails usually directed me to call the office back. If you gave everyone an updated resume though, they should have entered the new number. I wouldn't worry too much now, there is not really anything you can do at this point. Hopefully you included an alternate number (like a relative's landline) or they will think to email you if the phone doesn't work.

I actually got a callback by letter last year once, which was weird as hell.

I got callbacks into the second week of September from PLIP last year.

I'm not surprised, but from what I've heard from others, it seems that the vast majority of callbacks are given within the first month after the screening interview.

I think that's probably right. I was merely trying to blunt your categorical assertion a bit.

I was just saying that I have never personally heard of anyone getting a CB that late from LPIP in particular. I personally received CBs from mass mailings and online applications after four weeks or more.
