Also zero. But I'm mostly not at NY firms.
Don't sweat yet.

I only have one, and have pretty solid stats as well (good grades, LR, etc.). It is a bit disconcerting, but it's still somewhat early, so maybe things will get moving more tomorrow.

Yeah, I guess not. I just want to get one so I know I'm not horrendously fucking up my interviews before it's too late.

Just out of curiousity, would you mind sharing your grades?
Also, were you able to take up the full 20 minutes with questions, or did you have an awkward interview as well?

Sidley Austin SF: Grew up in CA. Got call around 1 p.m. today. I thought interview was a bit awkward b/c I had to ask all the questions, but I tried to talk about myself as "background" for framing my questions.

Speaking of which, sidley was doing half hour interviews. But the person before me came out like 7 minutes early as did I. So I figure they were just trying to get time between.

I didn't know there were any jobless 3Ls at Harvard.



There's a pretty fair amount. There aren't a ton of us, but its enough to possibly raise an eyebrow.

I wouldn't stress too much (yet). I have a few friends who don't have CBs, but otherwise have good stats. It's too early to freak out.

I also get the sense that firms outside of NY move slower (at least my experience with my DC and Boston bids).

How can we find out where hospitality suites are if we're not scheduled for interviews?

There are lists on the tables in the ballroom. Or you could ask the OCS people.

There's a piece of paper on each table in the student lounge everyday that lists all of the hospitality suites. Also, firms with these suites are usually large enough that someone you know will be interviewing with them; ask around.
