top 20 percent w/LR

dings from mwe, reed smith, soft ding from schiff hardin most likely, edelson mcguire

only 1 CB

none of this is surprises me, however. illinois is an average school and chicago has small class sizes. I'm also not holding my breath on chapman cutler. no way they take another illinois student on this summer so imma count them as a ding.

I might be the only ND kid, but just for some perspective:

Top 15-20%, secondary journal, WE, from Midwest.

Three callbacks. All in Ohio (larger markets, firms). Three Dings. All in Chicago (Jenner, McDermott, Chapman)

Silence from the rest at this point. (A few more Chicago firms, a few more Ohio/Indiana/Michigan firms). I'm assuming Chicago are all dings at this point, but I figure CBs might be a little slower in smaller markets. May be wrong there.

Mind giving the names of the firms since you are anonymous? Or at least how long it took them to get back to you after screener. I'm waiting on Ohio firms myself.

Varies wildly, but generally lower. I know one firm that called back like 30 for two spots.

Cincinnati took a couple weeks for the CB. Cleveland and Columbus were day of/next day calls after OCI screener. I can PM firms if you post non-anon.

This is for the Taft Indy office? That's cool they're doing the dinner at the partner's house this year, they didn't do that last year.

Has anyone heard from Jones Day Columbus? If you have gotten a CB, how long did it take after the screener?
