Post-callback ding from Jones Day (SF).

Snail mail. Sent Friday, Aug. 26. Turnaround was ~1 week.

I thought the CB went well, exception being an interview with one partner, which I at least thought was OK. Now very nervous.

Thank you for the rejection, Cleary NY. Not only did you take more than 6 weeks to respond to my application, but you decided to ding me at 9:30 on a Saturday night.

On second thought, fuck you, Cleary.

Their name sucks too bro, just appreciate the fact that you won't be working for something that sounds like a hair salon.

This makes me nervous, as well. I interviewed with them this past week and they said I should know after they met on the 26th. No phone call on Friday, so I guess that means ding?

Original Jones Day reject here.

Doesn't sound good for you. But fingers crossed. You ain't rejected till it's official.

I'm pretty bummed about it. With the exception of that partner, I really liked everyone I met. Wasn't that the partner was terrible or anything, just diametrically opposite of my personality, and, it seemed, everyone else in the office. Go figure.

Big week ahead- a lot of hiring committees will be meeting for the first time and I'm guessing we'll finally start to see significant waves of post-callback offers/dings. I'm equally anxious, terrified, and excited.

Good luck everyone!

Similar previous threads was helpful for me, so I'll contribute.

USC/UCI/UCLA around top 40% + LR:

Orrick LA callback
Manatt LA callback
Dewey LA callback
Fulbright LA callback

Fenwick SF callback --> ding
Nixon SF callback --> offer
Sedgwick SF callback --> offer
Weil SV callback --> ding

I also have a mountain of rejection emails/letters from direct mail/OCI screenings + callbacks/offers at smaller SF/LA firms.

Anyone know how long STB NY has been taking for offers after CBs? I know they say a week, but I want to hear anecdotes.

Same. They didn't mention anything to me about any kind of timeline or when I could expect to hear back from them. I'm afraid it's going to be an agonizing week.
