So I still haven't heard back from some firms that I interviewed with at the PLIP, but just found out I made a 4.0 in classes this summer which substantially raises my gpa. I want to send this info to the firms but I'm not sure whether post-spring grades matter to them or not. Further, I'm not certain how to bring this to their attention at this point. Any advice?

You don't want a callback form Brinks. They seriously are imploding. I have friends that were there and friends that are still they trying desperately to get out. They also just lost the lion's share of their "rainmakers" to other firms.

Just trying to give fair warning.

+1 Heard the same thing. If you have multiple CBs/Offers including Brinks, I'd recommend looking into the situation. It was less than a year ago that Brinks laid off 18.

It was pretty awkward meeting people in the Brinks hospitality suite last year and then finding out some of them were canned just a few weeks later.

1) Brinks Partner told me they were looking to hire more than last year.

2) I think many Boutiques wait til after they do OCI to make any callbacks.

Got a CB today. Don't count on more, but it's not out of the question.

I hate when people do this, but I won't say who it is because I'm quite possibly the only one. Sorry all.
