They are pretty much the same thing, aren't they? I've never bought into the "interview skills" thing. I guess unless you define it as the ability to not do something insanely stupid during the interview and to happen to fit into whatever subjective mold the interviewers previously created.

maybe to a certain extent, but being charming has to be worth something.

on a different note: any news from Williams last night? anyone know if offers went out?

I know someone who has been very successful in west coast markets, just under top 1/3.

Also, declining offers today--I hope that this can open up more space for a GULC student.

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!


I'm barely in the top third (GPA is exactly at the cut off). I broke into the CA market with fair a bit of success. 5 callbacks, 3 offers. Secondary journal and strong ties to the market.

Hogan recruiting meeting is today for anyone who did CBs last week. Can anyone who hears anything post responses, one way or the other?

Stats, if you don't mind sharing? How did you feel your callback went at the time? Thinking of accepting? If you are the one with the other offers.
