Just goes to show how advantageous it is to have your CBs as early as possible.

I was there yesterday and was told that they are behind on offers and such and want to catch up this week so I'm skeptical that 50 offers have gone out already for NY when their class is supposed to be so small. Is that crazy?

I agree. I find it hard to believe they have given out 50 offers considering they had two of their super days last week and another one this week and only have a class of 25-30

Best news I've heard in a while. Seems like there are too many of us who haven't heard anything, and too few people claiming offers for all offers to be out.

I don't know, that seems fine to me. The V15 interviewer indicated in his thread that generally around 30-50% of people accept the offer, so I imagine the yield is somewhat on the lower end of that scale, if not lower, for a place like Proskauer (depending on how high they want to read).

For a class of 25-30, it wouldn't surprise me if they gave out around 100 offers.

To be exact, there were 48 people in that email. Mostly Harvard/Columbia people.

Seems like they have been coming by email. In any case, still nothing here after a LONG silence.

Perhaps there will be some movement for all us holds this week if it is true that they're behind on offers and catching up this week.

This honestly doesn't speak well of Proskauer as a firm. Is it true that they've also been losing corporate business to other firms? Read that in another thread.

Looking forward to the results of Newark office's Super Saturday. They said between 7-10 days, but perhaps a few calls will go out this week.

Can anyone confirm? Wondering if it was another big wave, or more case-by-case.

Her/His callback was 6 or 7 days before the offer.

Interesting. I was told it would be about 2 weeks and that they had another group coming in today (Wednesday) and would start ranking people tomorrow.
