For those with Callbacks, how are you asking for permission to miss class and/or have the class recorded? Are you just saying I have a CB, can you record the class? or are you not asking for a recording?

Send an email and apologize for not being able to be there and then just ask for a recording. 90% of the time they will have already gotten another request to record.

Are you referring to emailing the professor and asking for the recording? I was under the impression you have to do that through the form on the website and request it from the IT people. It specifically states on the form that missing class for an interview is NOT a valid reason to receive a recording.

T4 Transfer: 1 CB, 7 dings, waiting on 3 firms. Only bid on DC though, had no interest in working in NYC and have little ties outside of the Midwest. I've been mass mailing like crazy in Chicago, DC Metro, and my home state markets. Home state markets have called back the day of emailing saying they do their hiring later because its a regional market but that they're very interested. Not worried about getting a job, just expected more than one callback in DC irrespective of a job offers.

I got a ding from Dickstein Shapiro last week. I'm still waiting on Hughes Hubbard and Sutherland. No idea about post-CB.

I'm around the 45%, secondary, minor WE. Bunch of screening interviews at EIW and elsewhere. 8 CB; 1 V10, 3 V50, 1 V75, 3 NA. One ding from an NA CB today. How much should I read into the HR people telling me stats like CB ratios of 4/1-5/1 CBs per offer given? I have more screenings scheduled, but would prefer to save the travel/time if these CBs are likely to pan out.

A) With your stats, 8 CBs with a V10 means you're probably a great interviewer.
B) You'd be absolutely insane to skip call-backs with firms that you would choose over food stamps so long as you don't have an offer in-hand.

My luck, the V10 CB ding just came through. Thanks for the advice. I guess I can use the ff miles.

Dechert DC and Wilson Sonsini have made callbacks already, don't know if they have finished though.
