No word from Bartko Zankel yet


Damn. I'm away from home, but haven't heard from Blakely via phone or email yet, so I'm assuming that there's a ding waiting for me when I get home. That sucks, really wanted Blakely.

I had my callback last Friday. How long did it take for you to get your offer? If they give one to me, I'm accepting it immediately.

Got a CB/offer from Nixon.

[Edit] and a callback from Sedgwick - they said it would take 10 days to get back to me on whether they'd give me an offer.

@Sedgwick: When was your cb/office you applied for? (+ stats if you don't mind-- sorry been waiting forever on these guys).

I feel like I've already disclosed too much about myself, considering the fact that I don't know anyone else with a Nixon offer. I'd say message me and I'll respond, but that clearly won't work.

The callback was the San Francisco office. My GPA/rank at my particular school makes me competitive with the lower V100 firms. I'm sorry if that's too ambiguous.

Hello,

I have four interviews for this upcoming fair next week.

How does the process work?

Will they extend callback offers and from those callbacks extend offers to come back next summer? If so what did that timeline look like last year?

It appears that many of you had your offers to come back the following summer before school had even begun. Is that correct?

Thank you!

that is correct. Fair happened. Callback w/in a couple of weeks. Offer before school starts.
This will depend on the firm, where they are in the process and how much they like you.
