Houston has gone out. Unsure about other offices. But those dates are August 26 and September 2.

For the Atl office, the hiring committee won't be meeting until Aug 29th, so decisions won't be out until early September. Not sure if this applies to the other offices, though.

Thanks, that's helpful. Are you referring to CB decisions (as opposed to offer decisions)?

any thoughts on if there is a meaning to when after you leave an interview they tell you to tell the next person to give them a minute? is this a positive or something bad? it might be nothing, but it happened a few times and sometimes i was told that by the previous person. thoughts?

They have a binder with a sheet to make notes, and most interviewers a) want a few seconds to write some notes about the past interviewer and b) want to take a quick look at the next interviewer's resume.

nope, no meaning at all. these people are doing back-to-back interviews for hours on end and doing most of the talking during those interviews. it's more common than not for them to take a 1 minute breather between interviews to get out the next person's resume, drink some water, and reorganize.
