What are you asking? Which firms what?


Sorry, should have used the quote feature. I mean firms that people have CBs/rejections so far.

Barrack Ferrezzano Ding, not surprising considering they interviewed nearly 40 people at CCBA and they only hire 3 SAs.

Hmm, still haven't heard either way from C&C. Rejection letter must have gotten lost in the interwebs.

Stats?
Don't worry too much about Chicago. There are plenty of midsize firms there that still pay a decent living that will be taking applications Jan-March.

Same. One ding and one callback out of eight interviews.

I wonder if OCI interviewees get word sooner-- maybe we're just low on the priority list?

I think the random fairs are indeed lower priority. One firm got back to me very quickly for a CB. The other took a week. I haven't from anyone else.
