Callback and a ding from Troutman, paradoxically.

Can't say too much more without outing myself, but I had two screeners with them.

I attended SEMJF but haven't heard back from any yet. It doesn't seem like that many firms that interviewed have gotten back to people. I wonder if firms really take the interviews seriously or just send people so they can put it on their websites and NALP forms saying that they support diversity...

Do your credentials make you a competitive/viable candidate for the firms you are waiting on? Also, its very early in the recruiting season. Real talk here, a lot of these firms are willing to give a look to diverse candidates who, on paper, they wouldn't even give a screening interview to so I'd be grateful for that. Plus, the firms have to report to SEMJF the students they call back so there is a built in mechanism to prevent this.

Is this true? I have heard of this being a requirement of some diversity job fairs but I didn't think it was at SEMJF.

Got a callback with an NLJ250 firm (that isn't V100) in a smaller secondary market. Sorry for lack of details but not trying to out myself.

Yes it is true. There was a blurb posted outside some firm's interview rooms about it.

A few friends of mine have reported callbacks from DC offices. So there is some movement happening with SEMJF.

Can you provide any info about which of the two you got a callback from? One of them is a top choice for me and now I'm stressing. GL on the callback!
