True.

R&G. But that was a few weeks back. As above-poster's reasoning makes sense, this speed may not be a reasonable expectation at this point in the hiring season.


Thanks - I am more in the V50-100 range where there are not as many SA slots. Waiting to hear back from H&K and a few others.

Anyone hear of offers from Sullivan & Worcester? If so, how long from CB to offer?

Shameless bump. What's the most recent anyone's heard from them?

Curious to know why there is not much traffic on this thread. Is it because there have not been a lot of Boston offers yet or are students particularly tight-lipped in the area?

Cool, thanks. Mind if I was when, more specifically? I know their hiring committee met last Wednesday, were you after that, or not sure?

I think most places have a round of offers out, waiting to see their yield before making more. So it's quiet.

Sorry - everything's been a blur since OCI/school started. I think it was after Wed.

Thanks again, you've been helpful.

Oh, and congrats! Forgot to say that the first time.

Or anyone else for that matter? This thread has been silent. I expected some movement today.

Why do they keep telling us "you'll hear by the end of this week" or "next week" and then nothing at all happens? Good to know it's not just me -- must be huge piles of on holds in Boston firms. Any confirmation on the rumor that the yield rate on Boston offers has been really high this year?

Yup, it's not just you hearing those lines. Things have to start moving soon one way or the other, right?

WH ding in the mail, 6+ weeks post-callback. Don't know what the heck happened there, but maybe it means they're still considering people? Anyway, good luck for anyone still waiting on them.

This has been my experience too. Incredibly frustrating.

So what's the consensus on the Boston legal market this year? Seems like few offices are increasing class sizes at a pace comparable to NYC firms. Were people who targeted Boston generally able to to secure offers commensurate with what they would have gotten in other, larger markets?

Targeting Boston this year was very difficult and led to poor outcomes for many. Not sure why. Economy, hiring caution, more applicants from outside of Boston schools?...And apparently some are still waiting on hold. Maybe there will be more 3L slots next year?

You think the Boston schools have fared worse? I think the opposite. It seems like BU is doing really well in Boston, so I assume BC is as well.

Cosigned. Thought I wasn't going through OCI last year, the general mood seems pretty upbeat, at least from what I can tell.
