When was your SullCrom interview? Mine was Aug 8, and I still haven't heard anything. I assumed they just rejected by silence.

In other news, CB with Dechert DC . . . what's the word on them? I've heard mixed things.


Dechert DC seemed like a remarkably chill office. I enjoyed my CB there.

That said, for all I know, they didn't like me. They said they had a bunch of CBs to make and, as a result, wouldn't have any decision or answer for a while (a couple few weeks). So I can't give you advice from a successful callback, just from one that I enjoyed.

I happen to know that UCLA does not rank its students or otherwise give indication of where you fall in the overall percentage. Is this a best-guess calculation based on the curve? Or does someone actually know what the GPA rank is?



I know at GULC if you're toward the very top you get a letter- congrats on being top 2%, 3%, whatever- not sure how deep into the class it goes or if other schools have a similar system

For those who interviewed with multiple Cleary offices -- does Cleary send out separate dings for each office?

One week, my callback was last Thursday. They meet on wed so it could be shorter if your callback is early in the week. Good luck!

E-mail ding from Kirkland & Ellis. I don't remember ever applying to them and the e-mail didn't say my name at all. It is a mass rejection sent to undisclosed-recipients.
