How would one rely on this data? It's nice to know, but if a firm has a 30% offer rate rather than a 60% offer rate are you going to do anything differently?

I'm gonna try 30% less hard for the firm with 60% offer rate, obvs.

people might want to use it to estimate their chances. for example, assuming your own chance with each firm based on this data is 60%, your chance of no offers from 4 callbacks is (.4^4) = 2.56%. But that is very flawed because you might very well have an awful personality and end up in the 40% every time, etc etc

Also, people just might want to set expectations. If you know a firm offers 10% of its callbacks, you may be less disappointed if you don't get an offer, and vice versa. Similarly, it can be reassuring if you have several callbacks with 80%+ firms, even if you plan to try just as hard.

Well, no point in staying anonymous anymore. I figured a fellow student would see that. Keep me updated on whether you get any CBs.

Chadbourne - 55%

No information for the rest of the firms, its NY/DC centric for stats.

Some callbacks have a 90% offer ratio. The expectations going in would be clearly different than say one with 40%.

What I mainly meant though was that while a firm might have 90% offer ratio for one school, that might not be true for another school.

Also, Milbank - 40%

Paul Hastings NY & LA = Small sample sizes, but anywhere from 40 to 60%.

Quinn has followed up with a few people from the CB dinner apparently.

W+C is about 40% at HYS. Anecdotal evidence from friends at CCN is slightly lower.
