Almost every Chicago firm did callbacks the same day or the next, with a few firms waiting a couple of days. New York was a mixed bag, it seems like many of the more prestigious firms had pretty quick turn around on their initial callbacks. While the mid tier NY firms are taking a fair amount of time.
Have Sidley Chicago and L&W Chi done CBs then?
Sidley has at least started them. But I think the difference between the Cali firms with tiny classes and the big Chi and NYC firms is that those firms with big classes probably rush out a few CBs to the kids with really top grades, and then take a while longer to differentiate between people closer to median. It is pretty easy for Sidley to throw out 10 CBs to the law review kids, and maybe they think the fast turnaround will lure those kids in. Then I'd imagine they take more care going over the applications of the mass of people close to median and send out another round.
