I've heard from friends that it's about 40% at Columbia/NYU and 20-25% at Fordham. Not sure how true this is so other input would be helpful.

Do you know when your classmate interviewed/ got the offer?

I talked to him on 8/25 and he had an offer then. I think he had the CB mid-August, but I'm not sure.

Recruiter told me that the NY office wasn't even starting CBs until late Sept. Specifically complained about how late their season was going to run.

Any idea of his stats? Dechert is a mystery to me... their CB/offer ratio seems to be super low.

No idea about his stats, but we go to a lower T14, if that helps at all.

I haven't heard from Philly 2 weeks ago. What day did you interview? Stats?

I know they are doing TONS of interviews every day.
I'm T20, ~3.6, no journal

FWIW, it seems as if the NY office is calling back half of the screeners at my school. My guess is that the CB to offer ratio is going to be low.

Same at my school too. Seems like they're calling back everyone & their mothers.

Given how late the NYC office is running in comparison to other firms, I can't help but wonder how many of their CBs will end up canceling in light of other offers. This could make the actual CB/offer ratio better. Or maybe I'm just being naively hopeful, since post-OCI I'm literally sitting here with all of my eggs in Dechert's basket, crossing my fingers and toes that I'll get an offer.
