Ask your friend if s/he wants to interview for me from now on?

Came close to this, was 13/16 for the first two days. (The three I missed were places I was not terribly interested in anyway, maybe that came across in the interviews.) On 17 right now, with only one from today. I have a very good GPA (3.7+), but not law-review-grade-on level (and not LR). Didn't think I was a particularly good interviewer (not at all a sociable person), but my practice interview person thought I was great, so who knows. I think I'm good at turning on the charm in 20-minute spurts while being hopelessly awkward in longer periods. Useful skill for interviewing?

I made out like a bandit!

I have a 2.7 GPA. I got 2 callbacks and I have a good feeling about one more.

I wasn't even going to do EIW. I just decided to do it to get the interviewing experience.

YAY!

17 CBs! Maybe we can start catching up to your GPA... that's a lot of class to miss. Congrats, those are great numbers! Seems there is a lot of success out there that hasn't surfaced yet on these boards.

Also at 17 now. 3.5x GPA. It seems to be a bit feast-or-famine out there. Good luck to everyone and fingers crossed for more good news the rest of this week.

Haha, yeah. I've basically given up on attending class for the first two to three weeks.

Xfer with 5 CBs though id be surprised if a few more didn't come in from today. The results are largely due to my overbidding. Im a good interviewer but I bid on too many seletive firms. A smarter list of bids could have led to twice the CBs. Oh well. The odds are hopefully good enough to work in my favor.

Anybody get a call from an unknown number tonight around 7:30? I missed it and didn't get a voicemail. Wondering if I missed a CB or something else...

I have a Covington NY CB. FYI: I asked one of my references, and the firm did not yet contact them. Just one data point. Maybe they will check refs between callback/offer this year.

I got an unknown number today that turned out to be Barack Obama looking for volunteers.

13 CBs (11 scheduled interview, 2 resume drop/schmoozing). But I'm still holding out hope for Cleary, STB, and Skadden.

Pathetic, I know.

You peeps with the unknown caller could post who you interviewed with today and look for the common thread.

non-urm, no w/e (other than this past summer), around 3.2 with 9 cb's so far. I felt like a robot towards the end today. Best of luck to everyone.

Cleary is calling from an unknown number. I think it's wise to answer all phone rings for the next few days.

Are you guys reporting calls from earlier? Or do calls really come in this late?
