I thought Wachtell doesn't even recruit at Duke.

Yeah they do. You have to be invited though. I guess they pay more money or something to pick and choose candidates to interview. I actually just got dinged from them.

So Lowenstein also sent out CBs via snail mail? Not just the "we're currently reviewing your file" letters?

If I am unemployed next summer, I am applying to work at CPDC, so be assured that at least someone from CPDC will actually be helpful in the future.

Has this been an all-or-nothing OCI? Has anyone out there hit on about 2-4, rather than getting either 10 or none?

Edit - Sorry I can't answer about Lowenstein.

I got an actual Lowenstein ding in the mail today (although I'd just read this thread and thought I did really well in the interview, so I was excited before I read it.)

White & Case callback this morning.

EDIT: Very little other news. Had one non-NYC firm CB call two days after interview and had two other dings, both very early and via email.

No joke. 16 screeners. Median grades, but great work experience. Haven't heard a peep. I'll sleep much better once (if :shock: ) I have an offer for next summer.

16 interviews, 1CB (thursday morning), 2 email dings (thursday and friday).

My sense is that many firms have a few primary targets, which they reached out to last week - now they get into the pile of "maybe's". Others seem to have called, dinged, and gotten the hell outa Dodge (i.e. Wilmer).

FYI - "my sense" = utterly baseless postulating.
