I interviewed 8/18 and was told not to expect an answer before this week. No word yet...

Seems pretty quiet. I don't think we should all worry just yet.


I interviewed on the 15th.

I know at least one offer has gone out from the LA weekend interview.


From the weekend that just passed? If so, is it safe to assume no offer from this weekend means a ding is on it's way?

I had a callback last week and haven't heard back yet, hopefully not a ding! Would you mind telling me if you sent thank you letters afterwards to each attorney that you met there?

Was told last week that the HC would meet over the weekend, but with the MTA shutdown I'm assuming the meeting is being pushed possibly as far back as next weekend. Or it's already happened and we're all screwed.

edit: talkin NYC here

Thanks for the heads up! I didn't send thank you letters either, but I haven't gotten a rejection or offer yet so there may still be hope! If you don't mind me asking, did you interview with more attorneys from the corporate side or litigation?

You mean the NYC HC wouldn't meet until the 10th? With the storm being fairly minor and given how fast NYC moves, that seems very strange. Has anyone contacted them?

Does anyone have thoughts on Proskauer in the West Coast market, as compared to V10 firms? Are the differences in rankings/prestige enough to have any real effect on exit options, assuming that partner is difficult to make at either firm and thus one probably wouldn't stay at either indefinitely? This is with the assumption that Proskauer has a couple of points that weigh more heavily in its favor, like great people or location, etc.

If you get dinged, don't feel bad, it's probably for the best. Anecdotal, but I've heard people say that it's an unfriendly firm culture. Biglaw hours+unfriendliness=souldestroying.

I assume you mean New York? I've had a very different experience in another office.

Yes, NYC. True, another office might be fine.

If it was post-CB, when was your CB?
