Rather not say the firm, but SF CB today. So CA is not done with CBs

Neither are NY firms. I heard of people getting CB's as of this afternoon. As people cancel CB's, spots open up and those in the "hold" pile might get a shot. Thats why its so important that those who get the offers they seek cancel all outstanding CB's ASAP!!

Congrats on Gibson. Do you remember who your interviewer was?


DS from OC. Went to dinner as well.

Edit: Latham (SD) ding via snail mail. Akin Gump (LA) ding via e-mail; that one shocked me based on interview and stats.

Anyone heard from S&C DC?

actually i read on some thread (Duke OCI, i think) that they sent some CBs by mail. maybe you should call to check?


Verifying this. They sent me a CB by snail mail. Call them up, make sure the empty envelope was supposed to be a ding.

Accepted an offer from a firm this morning, freeing up CBs at:

Linklaters, Kirkland, Jones Day, KL Gates, Dechert, Goodwin Procter, SewKiss, Chadbourne, Fried Frank, Paul Hastings, Mayer Brown, Morgan Lewis, Cahill.

FYI, a couple of these came as late as 10 days after EIW. Best of luck to those still waiting!

Snail mail ding from Covington. Still no word from wilson sonsini, which slightly grinds my gears.

Haven't heard a word. Sent my interviewer an update to my resume a week or so after OCI, and he let me know he got it and said he is passing it along. But no word one way or the other.

Oh, and I got Milbank email ding today. Not my best interview, so I guess I'm not upset. I've had way too many that went absolutely awesome that didn't result in callbacks for me to whine about a so so interview not going my way.

I'm losing hope for any callbacks from the mythical "hold" pile. I had 10 OCI interviews still pending as of this morning, and got 5 rejections today to cut that number in half. Such a big amount of rejection all at once sorta hurts, but I thrive off negative energy so it only motivates me more to one day rub it back in someone's face since I never let a grudge go. I know one rejection is Milbank via email, but I will update once I actually see which firms sent me letters (which I was told are waiting for me at home)

Paul Weiss and K&L Gates snail mail dings today. Milbank email ding. Got a SewKis ding but that was from an in office interview rather than through OCI (not that it makes it suck any less). Oh and a rejection from a CB in a secondary market that I secured through mass mail. Well that was a shitty day.

I got 3 today. I was expecting dings at all of them, but it still smarts.

I know this is a stupid question, but at what point can one feel relatively safe in letting an offer expire? Here is my situation:

I've been doing a bunch of mass mail interviews and CB's before and throughout OCI, and have 2 offers, one from a mid-size NY firm, and another from a large non-Vault firm in my home state. Both made the offers relatively early, and while I am certainly interested in the home state offer, I have a series of CB's with more selective and "prestigious" larger firms coming up, including 9 with Vault firms (most in NY, but some NJ offices, and some in Philly). The home state firm offer will expire before I find out the results from pretty much any of these September CB's that will happen over the next 3-4 weeks. I just wish I could feel safe given 9 big firm interviews, and I have no idea if I would be a fool to allow the earlier offer to expire (and no, they won't extend the offer).

Only waiting on a few more OCI responses:

Quinn Emanuel
Sidley
Pillsbury (DC)
Davis Polk
Latham
Sullivan & Cromwell
Kramer Levin

I'm not expecting any good news (especially since I've been completely shut out of V25 firms and don't expect that to change with a late-round CB). Pillsbury DC I don't really care about since I don't want DC, but Kramer Levin would be a pretty sweet CB if it came through. Holding out the slightest bit of hope that one of the big boys will give me a call.
