Are people sending thank you notes? Email or snail mail? I went with emails since I feel like this process is so compressed, but then I thought I heard somewhere that you aren't really supposed to send them for screeners. I guess its better to play it safe.

No thank you notes. They don't want their inbox cluttered with them and snail mail arrives to late.

have also heard that Skadden, Latham, Greenberg Traurig and Schulte have given call backs. Anyone know which interviewer from Schulte did call backs already?

If other people got CB but you didn't, does that mean you're out?

Well I'm perplexed. Great gpa with strong experience and I've interviewed at 4 of the firms who are listed above as having given callbacks. I thought my interviews went great and my resume should have gotten me over the hump, but all quiet over here. Can't figure out where things went wrong.

Has anyone had success using the direct approach or the morning greeter program? So far I've found them very hit or miss, emphasis on miss.

hey...me too. got cb from two solid ones so far, but had great interviews at firms that i thought for sure my gpa/resume would be right in line. maybe your interviewer hasn't made his/her calls yet. i received the call directly from my interviewers.

friend from my journal said he heard another friend got a call from dewey already. i'm not sure how this works, maybe someone else knows...
