Same -- I scheduled a few callbacks last week and the first open dates at some firms were in very late September.

(law review grade-on)


I got a V20 offer last week and am not law review grade on.


I think it depends on the market because most people i know with an offer are not LR grade on..

Nope. Just no new bad news, so nothing to say other than FML FML FML. Which seems to have already been covered.

After 21 interviews, all I have to show for it are a bunch of rejections and zero CBs. I gave-up hope and started networking and mass-mailing like crazy. Congrats to the people with 1 or more CBs, wish I could say I know how it feels.

Side Note: When was the Paul Hastings LA rejection sent out?

I'm guessing he/she meant OCI screener since 2 weeks post CB would mean they had a CB in LA right in the middle of OCI.

(I challenge anyone to fit more acronyms in a sentence)

Have people been following the advice of OCS and calling firms you haven't heard from? How has that gone?

It's gone great, I guess. They told me I was rejected. So atleast you get the inevitable out the way and begin plan B (hold myself, rock back-and-forth, and cry).
