I could really go for any fucking callback at this point.

Been having a number of great interviews and getting awesome vibes from many. Yet all I have is 1 CB from a secondary market (to which I have ties and likely would have gotten an interview with anyway with no need to attend NYU). So zero CBs from NY firms. Why exactly did I transfer? Glad these rooms don't have open windows (yes im joking, but just barely)

Fucking nothing today either. Sitting around a table listening to multiple people getting/scheduling callbacks was painful. It isn't that I don't want them to get callbacks. Thats not at all the case, but to see people get such a confused look at my mention of only 1 CB really confirms to me that I'm simply falling through the cracks. It hurts because, at practice interview evening, my interviewer said that, if I repeated what I did there, I would have my choice of offers and more callbacks than I could possibly go on. I've repeated it over and over and come out of interviews with the utmost confidence. That is what makes this utter failure even more painful.

Yes, and its looking like the biggest mistake of my life at this point unless something miraculously changes. I shouldn't be here and the employers are making that clear. They are hardly even taking me seriously. Wouldn't have been like this at my old school. Sure, I wouldn't have as much NYC firm access, but at least it would be preselection, so the employer would at least want me in the room and take met seriously.

Anyone get a dinner invitation from S&C? I for one haven't, but I thought I heard that S&C did post-interview dinners in the past.

IDK what you're freaking out about. I've gotten one callback and I'm happy with that. I know too many people who've gotten zero.

to xfer: Relax. It still is early, some firms are not done with callbacks, and there is another full day of EIW. Focus on what worked in prior interviews and avoid what didn't work. If you still hear nothing by Wednesday, schedule a meeting with OCS and see if there is an error in your resume and/or interviewing technique. Last year students were still getting screening interviews and callbacks into October.

It sounds like you may be projecting a bit here. Can you try to channel some of this frustration into something constructive, like running through interviews in your mind and trying to pick out answers that might be rubbing people the wrong way? What are you telling people for why you transferred? This bitterness about your situation will hurt you more if it becomes apparent to the person interviewing you. Don't become a self-fulfilling prophesy.

Orrick rejection via snail mail. %$#&, I clicked so well with the interviewer since her practice area is my specific area of interest.

Could have been worse--she could have called you to reject you. I think Orrick has realized this is terrible PR and have stopped doing it.
