Paul Sevanich, attorney recruitment manager at Finnegan. I'm waiting on a decision from Finnegan as well, interviewed with them last week as well. Thought it went really well, but am now nervous that I haven't heard back.

Yeah I was surprised by it too. I figured I had a good chance since they were only interviewing one day for the boston office and the interview felt like it went really well.

Man. What a tease.

Finnegan emailed me for a callback yesterday.

Me too. I've heard zip from the other 9. I had a really good feeling about 4, including Finnegan, so suddenly I am a bit hopeful.

I wonder how many get called back for each position...

Interested in following this thread.
Could you guys who received callbacks volunteer:

School range: T14, T50, T100, TTT...
Grade range: top 10%, 25%, 50%...
Undergrad Degree: EE, ME, CS, bio, chem...

I'm feeling nervous now - Finnegan was one of the ones I felt good about.

I think it was just the interview team - there'll be congenial people everyone clicks with, and from there it's probably a crapshoot. I felt good too but thought everyone likely would. Ah well.

After all is said and done, maybe. I'd 100% be outing myself if I posted 2 of those things, and even 1 might be enough to out me.

My interview wasn't at PLIP, which makes me substantially more nervous, especially since a friend of mine already has a callback. Can't really say more without revealing who I am.

Well I can see how it would out you if you state which firms you received callbacks from.
Would it out you if you stated 2 or 3 of those categories + number (or range such as 1-3, 3-5, 5-10, 10+) of callbacks you received, not stating the firm names?

Does it really matter what their grades/school/background was? Too late to change any of that now.

i think he is implying that P(callback) is greater if you have a better resume. its probably less true at PLIP because of pre-selection but i think this is accurate for lottery schools.

If you're a 0L looking for info, I'd just wait until people start getting final results. There was a long thread last year where people gave # of screeners, CBs, offers, grades, school, interview ability, ties, and random things they thought played a role.

Yea, but what good is it to try to collect the data. The interviews already happened. The sample size is truly small.

Finnegan specifically, or firms in general? This really depends on the firm. Given a hypothetical 10 positions, some might call back as few as 20, while others might call back as many as 200.

You also though have to remember they might offer 4 people for every 1 spot. Since many people get many offers.

I can't believe I'm asking this, but is it expected to send a thank you (email?) to interviewers? It honestly just didn't occur to me to do so, and it seems like it's too late now.
