At least some. A friend picked up one, for a CA office IIRC.

At least one DC callback went out as well.

It seems like a fair number of firms are holding receptions for those who are interviewing with them. Is it important to go to these receptions? I mean, does it really make a difference either way?

Yes. Very. There will be a sign-in sheet. They will notice.

That said, if you must miss such a reception (as is my lot tonight), I would definitely RSVP regrets, perhaps with a brief explanation. This is of course assuming you have the kind of prior commitment that would justify missing such an event. Otherwise, you're essentially telling them that getting a job with their firm isn't worthwhile enough for you to come out to a fancy place and chit-chat/eat and drink on their dime when they've flown across the country to meet you. Not a good impression to make.

I don't recall the Troutman Sanders reception having a sign-in sheet. Did I miss something?

I didn't see a sign-in sheet either. There were very few attorneys there due to some transportation issue.

I've heard some talk about these receptions. Probably an annoying question, but is it weird that I haven't been invited to any? I'm almost exclusively interviewing in secondary markets, and I'd assume that the regional-type firms would be less likely to host something like that. But some of my interviews have been with smaller offices of large, national firms. Am I totally screwed, or am I just being excessively paranoid?

It's fine. I haven't been invited to any receptions, and I have three callbacks at the moment. Non-LR grades.

Don't say that, don't freak people out. As we've all discussed many times, the fact that one callback went out is not indicative, at all, of whether you are going to get a callback. Unless you have gotten dinged by a firm, you are still in the running.

I noticed that folks in some other schools' threads are including the initials of the interviewer with their info about callbacks/dings/etc. Obviously it still wouldn't be indicative of whether all callbacks had gone out, but I think it might be somewhat useful.

I heard [firm name redacted] called people this morning letting them know about CB's. About 12 hours later, I received my CB.

So - just b/c other people got CB's doesn't mean you didn't get one!
