After hearing from some LR friends that they got CBs at a lot of the top firms, but not from lower ranked firms, that their is almost a yield protection mentality at some of the smaller firms. It seems like these firms figure the 3.5-3.7+ GPAs will go elsewhere so why use a callback on them?

That said, sure is a high class problem and I think any of us without those grades would happily switch places.

3.56 gpa not law review but other journal. Callbacks from Cravath, DPW, Weil, and Cleary. A couple others that I'm interested but these are the ones that seemed to be above my gpa. It all seemed to come down to being a fun relaxed person in the interview.

Thought it might be helpful to have a consolidated list of who has made calls for the many of us out there still waiting to hear. There are obviously a good amount here, but I thought there would be near 100% by this point and there clearly are a decent number of firms that have not gotten back to people yet.

The following firms have made at least some callbacks, not sure if they are all done yet. Take it for what you will:

Allen & Overy
Baker Hostetler
Baker Mckenzie
Bingham
Blank Rome
Brown Rudnick
Bryan Cave
Cahill
Cadwalader
Chadbourne
Cleary
Clifford Chance
Cravath
Davis Polk
Dechert
Dewey & Leboeuf
Debevoise
Duane Morris
Fried Frank
Greenberg Traurig
Hahn and Hessen
Herrick Feinstein
Hogan Lovells
Katten Muchin
Kaye Scholer
Kelley Drye
Kirkland
Kramer Levin
Latham
Linklaters
Lowenstein Sandler
Mayer Brown
McDermott
Milbank
Morgan Lewis
Morrison Foerster
Moses & Singer
O'Melveny
Patton Boggs
Paul Weiss
Pillsbury Winthrop
Pryor Cashman
Proskauer
Quinn Emmanuel
Ropes & Gray
Schulte Roth & Zabel
Shearman & Sterling
Sheppard Mullin
Sidley
Simpson Thacher
Skadden
SNR Denton
Stroock
Sullivan & Cromwell
Vedder Price
Venable
Weil
White & Case
Wiggin and Dana
WilmerHale
Winston & Strawn

My mailbox is slowly filling with dings from interviewers from the first day of OCI. Just be patient, your letter is coming. Unless it is some tiny firm, all of the big firms have already made their decisions.

How are people doing with callbacks? Has anyone started to receive offers? I've been on a couple but no offers yet. Specifically, has anyone from Fordham received an offer from DPW yet? They're pretty much on the top of my list and dying to hear back from them.

just went on my cb at dpw yesterday, but based on the dpw thread, sounds like between 2-5 business days is the normal offer range. that was my second cb....first one was the week before, received an offer two days after.

Just an FYI, dpw doesn't hire many Fordham students. If a few people from Fordham have already received offers, you may want to stop hoping.

yea pretty sure we're all aware of that, thanks. seems like an unnecessarily catty comment given that no one has said theyve gotten an offer and someone was just trying to gauge where others were in terms of post-callback movement.
