It never came. But you can schedule without it. And I would not wait for it.

Good call. Just scheduled my callback by calling the general recruiting number.

I'd agree with that assessment. It seems that I know people who either have 0-2 callbacks (a lot of people on the zero end of that) or 10+ callbacks.

The trickle down is a constant feature of our lives, it appears.

I am sitting on one callback and two dings after close to twenty interviews. Starting to worry

I'm in the same situation. Got the callback right away and heard nothing since except a couple of dings, really unnerving.

I'm at 10 callbacks and have heard from all within 48 hours. That is NYC though, so I'm sure its different.

DC CBs have been coming out at the same pace, for the most part.

I'm at 10 callbacks, most in a secondary market, and they have been much, much slower than NYC. I don't think anyone should interpret silence from a firm as evidence of a ding to come (my two dings came pretty fast — like two days and three days after the interview). It just means the firm hasn't made up its mind. But if you have no callbacks, it might be worth a visit to Career Services to discuss the situation.

Same. I have 8 callbacks from NYC, but I heard all of them within 24-48 hours.

Last year, the vast majority of CBs came within 48-72 hours of the initial screening interview.

Based on my own experience and the students I've spoken to, I agree.
