Nope. I don't think they've extended any GULC offers.


Thanks, please keep us posted if you hear anything.

Did not leave with a favorable impression of the firm at all. I didn't get my list of interviewers until I got there despite asking for it several times in the previous 24 hours. Security downstairs did not have my name in the system. They just did not seem to give a shit overall.


Ya, sounds like something strange is going on over there. Were you part of the Thursday night event or were you a regular, daytime cb?

Do you know when they got the offer? Many GULC folks didn't interview until this week, and W&C said they will not make any offers until they've interviewed all the recruits from GULC.

Are you sure? I don't believe this is accurate, based on what W&C told me. GULC offers go out next week.

This is precisely what I was told - that GULC offers will not be issued until next week given that many GULCers didn't interview until this past week. I was told this directly from the firm (including partners and recruiting) and from others who've interviewed.

Yeah, because the people with their chins down have assumed that posture because of the offers other people have.

Sure, I understand that. My comment was more directed at earlier laments in the thread that many GULC offers hadn't been listed on TLS. I meant that as a school we're doing alright. I meant no offense to those still waiting to hear back; I wish everyone the best of luck.

Also, throwing up a Wiley Rein (DC) offer to the list - a friend just told me she received it last week.

I got mine on Thursday, but will be withdrawing this morning. Hopefully that opens up a spot for a fellow GULC student.

It seems like most if not all of the students I know with offers are from the top 15%. How many students here got offers coming from the top 1/3 of the class or top 1/2? I don't think we did as well as we think we did at GULC =\ Also, if you are in the top 1/3 or 1/2, will you include which market you broke in to. Thank you!
