They had a suuuuuper low CB to offer ratio last year, so be careful about premature self-shattery.

So just in case it wasn't readily apparent, I, recipient of the shat, am not the previous incognitodood. Kill dat CB and shat away - you know the numerous advantages you have.

You must be my clone. 12 interviews, 1 official ding (Finnegan about 2 days ago via email). Still waiting to hear back from the rest.


i've gotten 3 cbs (and 0 official dings) since then. 2 from plip and 1 from another firm. starting to get slightly more optimistic.


Hmm...in that case, I don't mind being your clone! Still nothing from the other 11. Keeping my fingers crossed. Congrats on your CBs.

So what does it mean if a firm sent both callback and rejection emails and I did not get either. Anything we can do at this point or just have to hang tight?

Same boat as you guys, expecting a letter any day now. At the same time, they are interviewing at my school's OCI and I assume it would be bad form to bid for another interview after the ding?

If that bid can be used anywhere I'd use it. But if not, why the fuck not.

It is probably fine, especially considering that many firms use PLIP to recruit for the "patent dept". There is a whole separate path for general recruitment. Maybe it would be useless to bid on their IP practice specifically though.

One firm wants to CB in 4 weeks. :shock: Is that normal?
