Was it postmarked before the interview? That is a really quick turnaround otherwise. Sorry for the first ding of the program.

What was everyone told about hearing back? I had some say two-three weeks because they are starting up EIWs and won't get back to me until afterwards and others said I should hear back this week.

It would be awesome if people would put what school,texas ties, and approximate ranking.... dunno if people are willing. At least something would be helpful.

Thompson & Knight and Patton Boggs CB's so far.
Apparently dinged at Sutherland. (Completely expected based on how bad/awkward the interview felt.)
UVa, approximately top third (3.4X), no Texas ties, significant WE.

question about cb's (specifically Patton), if we aren't getting a cb now is it safe to assume a ding or are there "waves" of cb's?

It could be any number of things. The longer the time goes by the less of a chance of cbs I would believe. Especially considering that other people have gotten them. However, the firms could be doing it based on schools right now and have only done some applicants- unlikely but possible.

Don't stress too much about it. You can't redo any of it right now. just do your best during the rest of your interviews. Just because you weren't a good fit for those doesn't mean you won't be for the next one.
