Wow! I still haven't heard back from them! Stats?

Same person as A&O on the previous page.


Wow. A&O and V&E? You're killing it. Hope I hear back from either of them soon! When you're there, do you mind asking if they're planning on having anymore people in the office for interviews that they haven't gotten back to yet?

This might not be the right place to ask but since there is a lot of discussion of Cahill, can anyone tell me who to address my cover letter to?

9-1:30 "meeting with attorneys" w/ lunch, subject line is "interview invitation"; firm does not OCI at my school but they are a home-secondary market.

Is this a screener or CB or...? I've received multiple interview invites from non-OCI massmail firms; I haven't done them yet but they are all meeting with ~4 attorneys lasting ~3 hours. Are these still screeners or...?

Anything longer than an hour is a callback. Of course, this is a two-peaks situation, where everything is either a 30-minutes-or-less screener or a three-hours-plus callback.

I had an in-office screening interview that was roughly an hour and a half. Maybe a little longer, but less than two hours.

Is it still a CB if it's 6 30 min interviews? I have 4 of those next week.

Yes. That's pretty much the definition of a CB... its a bunch of screeners back to back with lunch.

I'm pretty sure I have a CB with no lunch since it's supposed to be at least two hours. But it's with a regional firm, not a V100.

I applied today. Given other peoples' experiences I've been reading thus far, I anticipate a dead fish in my mailbox, a la Luca Brasi.

Had my second interview today (both secured through mass mail). This one went even better than the last and, instead of waiting 2 hrs to ask for a callback, they invited me to a callback on the spot. Satellite office of big Vault firm btw
