I currently only have one callback and am considering this.
There really is a fine line on this one. While it is great to know while considering candidates who will accept and it does actually help in decision making sometimes, you don't want to sound desperate. If you do say you would accept, don't press with it to hard, just mention it casually towards the end if it has not already come up. Something like, "I really enjoyed meeting with you and learning about your firm. If given the opportunity, I would love to join such a dynamic group." Gets the point across without sounding too pushy or needy.
