I heard the Dechert Philly office is doing >150 callbacks.

this can't be right. maybe they're calling back 150+ people firm wide, but the philly office is only anticipating between 12-15 summers. to bring in 150 people for that many spots seems like a stupid waste of money.

They're also doing more screeners this week. I'm not sure if that's a reflection of dissatisfaction with what they've seen so far or that they like a large pool to pick from.

Any advice for someone with a Dechert DC CB coming up? What was it like, what should I expect?

Hm I dunno about that, it may be much harder for a Philly office to get people that they give offers to. If they give out 45 offers, then at least 1 in 3 has to accept - which may not be the case in Philly.

Bringing in more unscheduled screeners? As in... they screened already and are back for more?

Does anyone know of people who got Dechert offers (and, if so, their stats)?

Had a callback with Dechert DC a little over three weeks ago.

They said they'd let me know in 2-3 weeks. I told them, via email (I think), that I had an offer on the table with an expiration of the 14th. They haven't let me know (In fact, they never replied to the email), and it's a shame. I'm going to have to assume it's a rejection and accept the other offer.

The real pain is that a friend of mine interviewed with Dechert DC 4-5 days after I did and got an offer the following day.

I don't know what I'm expecting by posting this, but maybe others can relate to prolonged silence post-callback?

Followup (I'm quoting my own post):

Called recruiting yesterday to get an answer. Left a voicemail. They never called me back, but I came home to a snail mail ding dated Friday.

Oh well, it's over now, at least

I'm sorry to hear that, but at least you have another offer to fall back on. How did you like the office though? Any tips for someone who has a call back with the DC office as well coming up? No offer to fall back on, so I'm pretty nervous about it.

Bumping this thread, as I had a callback with Dechert DC last week and am very hopeful to get an offer. Anyone have any recent news?

their next hiring committee meeting is on Monday. so if it's good news i'd assume you'd hear shortly after that.

Congrats on the offer. How soon after your callback did you hear? I thought callback interviews just started this week.

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.

Any advice/tips on the interview process with the DC office? I have a CB coming up soon and would appreciate any insight you may have.

I'm the OP (not the person with the offer last week, the person with the callback last week). Offer today. Exactly one week turnaround - monday to monday.
