Very strong in transactional and L&E in Atlanta. Pay used to be a bit higher than other firms (still maybe not sure). But known for not having a great work environment and you will work incredibly hard from what I've heard--harder than most of the other big firms which says something.

This is about in-line with what I've heard. They have a good mid-market transactional practice, some grueling hours, decent pro-bono. Starting pay is $150 if it hasn't changed recently. Their payment systems group is also a strength area from what I understand.

Same anon. It was two weeks ago, ding a week after. Timeline was just to illustrate; AB seems to move quick so your odds probably decrease the longer you don't hear back. A&B sends its dings snail mail

Thanks for the info. At my CB they told all of us at the beginning of the day that they moved slow. I don't get why they go out of their way to say stuff like that when it isn't even true.

Just FYI - just b/c others have rec'd dings quicker, doesn't mean you are close. It just means you are in a closer tier than they are. One of the hardest parts about recruiting is predicting class offer/acceptance yields.

Just see what happens. until you hear no, you're still int he game.
