It had occurred to me that all of us on here might just be the losers of the process (at least Skadden) and others have heard back already. C'est la vie.

I can't imagine that there hasn't been someone On tls that would have heard from last week if they made offers.

Also waiting...I think they are probably just waiting to see if people they made offers to accept or not.

I told them my deadline was today and I called today to try to get a decision. They knew this a long time ago and completely blew it. I would have taken them if I heard. Good luck everyone, I am now officially done the OCI process.

What did they say when you called? I'm in the same position.

You could always request an extension from the firm you have a deadline with, if you can't get an answer prior.

I had a deadline that was about 7 days after my Skadden CB. I told them this on day of callback.

They never responded, and I was going to go with my other offer anyways. BUT they ended up calling me 4 days after my deadline (also known as 4 days after I accepted), and they gave me an offer.

I figured they were just going to send me a DING letter in the mail, so that's why I didn't tell them that I accepted an offer until they actually gave me an offer, 4 days too late.

Do we know yet whether rejections will come via snail mail or email? I'm just wondering if we'll find out either way by the end of tomorrow.

I asked this before, but can anyone comment on the relative prestige of the wilmington office compared to the other offices?

Skadden is Skadden everywhere. Skadden's Wilmington office is actually the highest grossing per capita.
