Bump for what?
Atlanta firms are starting to make calls. The local schools do OCI pretty early. I have heard through 2L's doing OCI at my school that these firms have made calls. Non-exhaustive list, probably, but I guess helpful for those waiting to hear.

K&S
Sutherland
Jones Day
Paul Hastings
Kilpatrick
Bryan Cave
Hunton & Williams

'Grats. Which other ones? Don't have to out yourself but I'm sure people would be happy to know who's still making decisions and whose dings just haven't come through the mail yet.

Have any Emory people gotten a Jones Day ATL or K&S callback through OCI? Thought I did well in both of those interviews and I'm pulling out my hair after not getting any calls today.

No, I asked one other person who interviewed with them and he hadn't heard either.

Does anyone have stats they can provide for Atlanta firms? Average GPA, bidding info, screener:CB/CB:offer ratios, etc? I'm hoping one of the local schools or maybe Vandy/UVA has this info for Atlanta?

At UVA all of the Atlanta firms that regularly come to OGI have an average callback GPA in the 3.3 range or higher. 3.3 id the mean at UVA.

I didn't see this posted, but McKenna gave out callbacks last Thursday from Emory OCI. Found out from Career Services today.

o_O They didn't interview until Thursday.
Any more Atlanta news? A&B is the only big firm that I haven't heard has made calls.


My bad, I didn't have an interview with them. I just know they made callbacks very shortly after they did screeners. Still haven't heard anything from A+B.

edit: Snail mail ding from King and Spalding.

I know they've given them out. I had quite possibly the worst interview in history with them. I think they started writing the rejection letter during the interview.

A friend of mine who works there suggested it's about 50%, maybe less. They're a little different than a lot of the Atlanta firms in that they're much more focused on "fit" than K&S, A&B, etc. The rough numbers she told me were ~40 CBs, ~20 offers, ~10 target SA's.

I did and I just asked the recruiter. They gave out 6 from OCI at my school and didn't have a particular number they were going to offer. Hope this helps.

This sounds right. I was told they were looking for 9-12 SA's.
