Based on what I'm hearing from a friend of mine who is a young Associate at Jenner... If you have an offer there, you might as well accept it. He feels like he just hit the lotto with a major firm policy change. Based on what he's telling me, Jenner just became the most desirable firm in Chicago as soon as this news hits ATL (which I would expect it will sometime today).

Are you kidding me???

My two friends at Jenner are scared shitless cause of this. They already make below market (remember Jenner only pays market for first years) and things are supposedly really slow.


The story is on ATL now:

It does sound pretty good. Why would they be scared shitless if the billables were only raised 100 but they can bill more stuff?

I know this is late to answer, but most of my UIUC peers getting callbacks are in the top 15-33%. I'm not sure why that is (and why the top 5% aren't getting CBs), but many people in this group have lots of callbacks. May just have to do with "clicking" with the interviewer.

clicking is one thing.
Firms also don't really want to extend offers to people if they fear they will reject the offer in favor of another firm.
I'm sure there are other factors.

Top 5% ND, Law Review.

Offer from Stinson. I cancelled at HB after they said they couldn't make a decision by mid-September... HB is a slow mover.

Ding from Polsinelli after CB.

So does that mean they wouldn't give you an offer til mid-Sept, or that we all wouldn't be hearing about callbacks until then?

No, the CB was going to be this Thursday, but they said they couldn't make offers until mid-September.
