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?

depends on the firm - i've got one in 4 wks.

CR. Too bad there are probably 10 total people getting all of those CBs... And between every firm in the city they'll still have to pare out 3 of them to fit the number they plan to hire.

Lololol hell with that, where you at New Yawk

The engineering job pays early 70s in a really cheap (but fun) city; lots to do... and a very famous city as well

You have the gig lined up? I'd consider it, but I think you won't be able to go into law for a very long time. I'd ask career services for their take on this.

In 2006, at CLS, KE NYC - IP bidding option had 8 people accept callbacks, 5 got offers.

Found out recently that I was picked for an OCI interview (not randomly assigned) by a patent firm that I interviewed with in Chicago. Later got an E-mail that they do not plan to interview me further. Cancel OCI interview?

There is no reason to think that CLS has anything to do it with it. They gave you the CB already. And while the ratio could have changed ITE, it also might not have. At least in Chicago they are hiring almost a normal sized class against.

Anyone have any idea from 09-10 data?

Yeah Ny will be near normal as well I think, was much much bigger this summer than last. I'm here to say that I not only outkicked my coverage, my coverage never arrived at the stadium. They're waiting on the Jersey Turnpike in bumper to bumper. I'm glad the interviewer liked me cause he was a great guy, but... y'know. I'm feeling like The Naked Man in that one How I Met Your Mother episode. Little bit of charm is all I've got, at least relatively speaking.

I'm a little unsettled by the fact that so far it's the only callback I have in chicago, and I had 10 interviews there. On one hand it's amazing to have a shot at my dream firm, on the other, if I miss, I've got no net.

I'm in the same boat, but no Chicago callbacks... No city pref though. Do have one more in Ny but they barely take any summers so that's cold comfort. 2/18 so far with 3 confirmed dings and at least 4 more that are pretty much guaranteed out, and that's before I even get to the pwning by Chicago boutiques and interviews that didn't go great. Go biggest or go home I guess. Best of luck man.

at the risk of crushing my dreams: have people heard from K&E SV, Sheppard SD, or Goodwin DC?
