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.


took about 2 weeks for the ding.

T10 transfer.


how did you feel the interview went? also, how long did it take you to hear back from Duane Morris through your mass mail? I sent mine about a month ago and still haven't heard anything (also T10 transfer, FWIW).


Thought the interview was great and loved the firm. Timeline was a litte over two weeks for the rejection. Got the cb a few days after sending my materials.

Same. Interviewed 8/16. Glad to hear I'm not the only one waiting, I was beginning to assume my ding letter was just taking a very long time to arrive. Still holding out some cautiously optimistic hope.

whats the typical (if there is one) cb to offer ratio? I just heard a biglaw firm had 6CBs per 1 SA spot. Seems really ridiculous.

Usually it's about 50%. Davis Polk is notorious for having a low offer rate at the CB level. Sullivan & Cromwell gives an offer to basically anyone who shows up at their CB with a pulse. But those two are outliers.

Just got my final decision from OCI. MVP Top 1/4. 19 screeners. 12 Callbacks. Already received an offer from a V15 firm.

Mostly NYC.

Seems to run anywhere from 33%-100% at my school, usually around 50% for most firms.

I forgot to ask at my cb what the usual time frame is for hearing back. Think its ok to call the recruiting office and simply ask or is this rude?

I had a CB with Akin NY almost 2 weeks ago, still nothing. I'd be interested to see if anyone has heard either way
