SullCrom is my only remaining EIW firm pending (yeah, like thats gonna happen). Still picking up interviews from EIW firms that I didn't get a chance to interview with at EIW by working what few personal connections I have and pulling whatever strings I can find. Got me interviews with Baker Botts and Brown Rudnick this week. They might just be screeners, but I'm not arguing.

Anyone else still waiting for results of DPW CB? I know someone who's been waiting over two weeks. That person called and is apparently still in the running.

Have we established that DPW's post-CB dings come by mail?

Seems like it. Offer dinner is on 9/20, so maybe you'll see a final wave of offers before then.

Got SullCrom rejection letter today. But on a happier note, I got Jones Day CB through hosp. suite resume drop and a bit of persistence. That's my third CB through resume drops.

Anyone ever get a rejection from Weil? They're the only firm I have yet to hear from after EIW. I'm pretty close to accepting an offer, but I'm still curious about what's happening with them.

Got my second Cadwalader ding today...

Anybody hear back after the Chadbourne CB night? They said we would hear by that Friday, which is two weeks ago tomorrow, and I've not heard a peep. I also thought they said something about an offer dinner on the 12th, so maybe I should take the silence as my cue :(

Lol, I got Cahill CB through resume drop at hospitality suite. Didn't gel at all during the interview, and got the world's fastest rejection. I interviewed late Thursday, and got out around 6. Rejection letter was in my mailbox on Saturday afternoon. They must have HATED me, but that's fine since I didn't like the firm, and my style didn't mesh at all with those of my interviewers.

I wonder if 70% of people who went through EIW actually got offers.

Dunno. What's the feeling around campus? I've kept relatively quiet throughout the process, but my sense is that people fared pretty well. I can't see numbers being worse than last year's 78% mark.

I don't think I've come across a single person who doesn't have at least one good option on the table. I'm a transfer, so my circle of acquaintances is relatively small, but I get the feeling of success across the board.

Definitely know people who seem to have significantly overperformed and some who have done inexplicably poorly. Maybe it's always been like that but things seem very hit or miss to me.

I know secondhand of people without offers who did EIW, but I have never spoken to one out of probably 40-50 people I've discussed EIW-related stuff with. I do know people who underperformed, but they all still got offers somewhere. I think we did better than last year.

Same. Of all the people I've spoken to, everyone has a job lined up, and most of them with excellent firms. Hell, all my offers are in the V20-V50 range and it makes me feel inferior (I'm just kidding btw, since I have my top choice firm lined up, and am super happy). But seemingly everyone I speak to has some V10 offer on the table (since they give out such a huge number of spots). I sort of know one guy who got shut out through EIW, but it looks like he will still get a pretty good position through networking. So I am very impressed with how the school fared.

I don't know, I think NYU did well but this seems to illustrate the flaw with this anecdotal reporting. The odds of speaking to 50 random 2Ls who did EIW, and who all got jobs, seems low. I think the people without jobs are just avoiding these discussions.

No offer. Purposefully avoiding speaking with anyone for anything remotely career related at this point.

I know of two people without offers, both of which are vocal about it. But at the same time, I get looked down on for picking a v50 firm, despite the fact that I'm perfectly happy with it.

Look, last year, if you randomly took a 2L who had done EIW, there was a one in four chance that that person would not have an offer. There isn't much reason to think things will be that different this year. I point this out because I have been in a few situations where people are pretty brazenly discussing their job options around other people who are clearly upset or uncomfortable talking about it. If you've spoken to 50 2Ls and they all had jobs lined up, you either have the luckiest and/or highest achieving friends at NYU or some of them were lying or staying silent to save face. People are striking out, often through no fault of their own, and it's really hard to deal with. Let's be considerate to one another by not rubbing it in and discussing our V10 offers with 25% of the class.

Yeah, I've gotten the same thing. I was in a group discussing the firms we picked, and I mentioned that my choices were in the V20-V50 range and one guy was like "well hey, a job is a job, so you shouldn't be too down". Yet the firm I picked is my top choice and in no way was I "down" about it. Guess its all very relative to some people. That guy was a douche anyway.

This whole process has brought out the worst in many people. This is outrageous.

Agreed. Law school attracts a very unsavory personality type to begin with, and the pretentiousness is only amplified at a top school. Add in the fact that jobs are like trophies for such a personality type to wave around, and it leads to a month that is anything but enjoyable. I've really been disgusted with some of my classmates over this past month, but I'm not taking it personally, because I realize that these are the types of people I will be dealing with on a daily basis in practice, and you have to build up a thick skin and learn to ignore it. (And perhaps I'm no better than the rest, but I just haven't taken the time to look in the mirror and see it, so don't think I'm putting myself above anyone).

Or some comment about how that is a tough market and people are underperforming there. oh, my future career is 'underperforming'? well fuck you too.

Another no offer here. Waiting to hear from a couple places still. I know of at least one other person who does not have a job lined up after EIW, and feel pretty certain about another.
