How did you follow up with them? Call? Email? Do you have good grades?
I have been mailing and I haven't received a single answer.
I just sent a series of emails. One was the initial application, and then I updated them with some additional info. On the few that I was really interested in, I would give a call to recruiting to see the status of my app. Sure, most give stock responses, but some would get back to me pretty quickly.
Yes, I have good grades, and I go to CCN, but all that does is get my resume looked at in the first place. I think persistence and a display that you are really serious about this firm is absolutely necessary at this point.
