V25 callback to offer ratios

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Aug 21, 2011 8:23 pm

Does anyone have information on the callback to offer ratios at V25 firms, the V10 in particular? Anecdotally I know that DPW is traditionally very low (30% or so apparently) and SullCrom is traditionally very high (90%). Any others?

Also interested in this. Is there any place to find this information? Particularly interested in hearing about Sidley, if anyone knows.

Your OCS should have this data for your school for the last several years. For each firm that recruits on campus, they will have a list of how many callbacks the firm gave to students at the school, how many offers the firm gave and how many of those offers were accepted. Ask them - it's useful information.

The most instructive stats are the ones on the bottom of p.1

Huh? This is not at all helpful. NY is slightly under 50% on average, okay.

At the very least we know that's the baseline - 45% callback to offer ratio in New York across all NALP firms (down from a high of 60% pre-crash).

One can surmise that the rate is probably a little higher for the big V50 summer programs in NY and DC, where class sizes are reasonably large, and even higher for the NY V15, which are looking to hire fairly aggressively this fall (e.g. Skadden and Simpson Thatcher told me they're increasing their class size from ~80 in 2011 to 120 next summer). Rate's probably in the 60% range for those firms. Which means that at the callback stage, it really is about fit more than anything else.

True. But some CSO's have the actual data, broken down by specific firm and year. Columbia and Harvard are two that I know make this sort of information available. There was another thread very similar to this where somebody was posting that information.
