When were these offers made? They had the last callback interviews on Friday the 16th.


I can only speak for the offer I know was made last week.

I believe you may be mistaken on the last cb day, I was under the impression that it was Fri. 9/9.

Got an offer left on my VM but not ready to accept yet because I'm waiting on my #1 choice to make it's decision. I have to call these guys back, but how should that conversation go? Anyone? How do I politely tell them I still need some more time to decide?

Is this a NALP firm? In that case, you have 28 days. They won't press you for an answer on the spot. They will provide some small details on the program, say a letter is coming, and congratulate you (probably in reverse order of that haha). Just say thank you and you look forward to the offer letter/email.

What are you struggling with? Those are two very different law firms. I think those firms have different visions of exactly what type of firms they would like to become. The attorneys at each firm also have different personalities.

While I think offer rates are important to consider, you have an opportunity to really decide on the basis of fit and personality.

Talk to recruiting. They'll answer your questions on offer rates.

Full disclosure: I truned down offers from both but had Strasburger higher on my list due to personality and fit.

Strasburger is 130, hayboo should be 160.

Edit: in terms of "prestige," Haynes Boone has the advantage. In terms of reputation, I've never really heard anyone trash Haynes Boone--they seem to have one of the better reps, in terms of lifestyle. Don't know as much about strasburger.

Has anyone heard from F&J Dallas lately? They said a week but it's been slightly longer. Starting to worry . . .
