Did not participate in my school's OCI because I want to be in N.Cal or CHI and OCI won't get me there.

PLIP:
Pilsbury, LA
McDonnell, CHI (callback)
Blakely Sokoloff
Cooley, SF (snail ding)
Fish & Richardson, SilVal (offer - telephone - 8/16)
Banner & Whitcoff, CHI

Bay Area Diversity Fair:
Bryan Cave, SF
MoFo, SF (email ding)
Finnegan, PaloAlto
Fenwick & West, SF (offer - telephone - 8/16)

Cook County Diversity Fair:
Husch Blackwell, CHI
McAndrews, CHI

SFIPLA:
Perkins Coie, SF (email ding)
Knobbe, SF

Had more interviews coming up, but canceled them in light of these offers.
The ones I didn't hear from might be snail mail dings that went to my school address. Who knows, who cares?

I attribute my success to just being a real person that people can get along with. Honestly I would only prepare for about 15 min per interview because I took the approach of getting to know the people and being very relaxed when talking to them. Before my whole cycle started, i crafted my story and had answers to the obv. questions. From there it was just a couple things about the firm that caught my eye, taking a real interest in the interviewers and being just being a person they can get on with.


This is encouraging =)

Oddly enough, I haven't heard from them (LA office).

On my way to striking out, so I can't imagine what's taking them so long to ding me.

Top 10% at old T1 school. Transferred to USC/UCLA.

How does it work if you interview with a firm in one city but say you're interested in their offices in another city? Do callbacks take longer/same time?

When interviewing with Kirkland(NY), I think I mentioned that I'd be interested in DC as well. It never really came up again and had no impact on my CB (although I mentioned it again at the CB).

So, to answer your question, the same amount of time.

Thanks, helpful. Was asking more in regards to firms that come to a campus that say they're interviewing for multiple dif offices. How does it work for offices that aren't the base one?
