I'm at 11 right now and waiting to hear from a few of my Tuesday and Wednesday interviews (DLA, Cleary, STB), although at this point the list is most likely fixed. I've grouped my callbacks into firms which I'd really like to work at, firms which I would be ok working at, and those which I probably wouldn't. I've started cancelling those which I wouldn't work at, and as soon as I get an offer from a firm I'd really like to work at, I'll cancel all of the callbacks at firms which I'd merely be ok with working at. I'm hoping to manage it down to 3 or 4 offers so the ultimate choice isn't too tough.
My bidding strategy was to include 4 or 5 safety firms and 4 or 5 reaches, and then went down the Chambers list in the practice area that I'd like to practice in. Since I got a few cb's at my reach firms, it will be easy to narrow down the list once an offer comes in from one of them.
