Apparently willing my phone to ring is not one of my talents. Nor is interviewing.

Don't think so, but the only person who looked at my bid list was someone from career services, and maybe she overestimated my interviewing skills. I don't think I was being over optimistic though. For now I'm going to tell myself my friday firms/interviewers just haven't gotten around to giving callbacks yet :?

Depends on your grades and which firms. SullCrom gives an offer to the vast majority of people who get CBs. And, if you have high grades (high Stone to Kent), it can be harder to get CBs from the V50-V100 range (who expect you to have a strong reason for your interest in the firm) than from the V10s (who only expect good grades and fit).

That could definitely explain why I've gotten multiple V10s and only one below that (despite equal numbers of V10 and non-V10 and being equally enthusiastic in interviews).

How does Cravath interview on Saturdays (are partners always there)? Is it a disadvantage to interview then as opposed to a weekday? I would guess morale would be low(er) on a weekend...

Initials from Dechert?
