Philly Callback/Offer Thread

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Aug 22, 2011 10:11 pm

If you have a CB with a Philly firm, please post as much information as you can to help the rest of us gauge what's going on (school range, rank, whether it was through OCI, how you felt about the screener, etc.)

Stats: T2 Philly school, in the top 15% and on a secondary journal with strong ties

Waiting to hear from:

Blank Rome
Fox Rothschild (heard some CBs went out today, so probably a ding)
Pepper Hamilton
Archer & Greiner
Stradley Ronon
Bennett, Bricklin, Saltzburg
Saul Ewing
Cozen
Drinker

What happened to Dechert/MLB/DM/Reed Smith/Ballard/Schnader? Did none of those give you a screener at top 15% at Nova? Or were you dinged? Penn student here, CBs at Ballard, Cozen, DM, Schnader. Waiting on Fox, Drinker, Pepper, Dechert, Blank Rome. Didn't screen yet with MLB, Stradley, or Reed Smith.

Nope, and the funny thing is 3 of those firms I didn't get - just threw them on to preserve anonymity. I got tossed on 7 or so alternate lists, so I'm going to followup with ones I didn't get an interview from tomorrow to see if they're interested.

Also forgot to add Manko, Gold, Katcher and Fox to my list.

Had a DM cb-style interview a few weeks ago from mass mail. They said the hiring committee wasn't meeting until August when everyone was back from vacation. Don't know if I did well enough to get an offer since they have such a small class.

I had a DM callback the first week of August, they told me that the hiring committee was not meeting until the end of August; however, I am getting a feeling from TLS that they did a lot of pre-OCI callbacks, so my odds were not as good as I hoped.

I'm the DM cb from above that posted before you that had the mass-mail cb. Stats? I'm a transfer originally from a Philly area school to a T14.

Callback at DM in early August. Callback at Blank Rome coming up in early September. Both interviews were from mass mailing which was sent out near end of July.

Top 15% and secondary journal at T30. Some Philly ties (Family/had my 1L summer job in Philly). I can't think of any other info people might want.

When were you notified of the Blank callback? They just did OCI at my school and I've been waiting, feel like I did pretty well.

I've done quite a bit of interviewing with Philly firms mostly due to the mass-mailings I sent out. Here is a rundown of my experiences thus far:

Ballard Spahr - Did a screener, and returning for a CB
Duane Morris - Went in for CB, haven't heard back yet
Cozen - Came to OCI for screener, don't know if I will get a CB yet
Pepper Hamilton - Invited me in for screener next week
Blank Rome - Invited me to interview. Not sure if it will be screener or immediate CB
Morgan Lewis - Same as above. Don't know if it is screener or CB

I got mass-mail CB's from Blank Rome and Pepper Hamilton.

Got an offer from Blank Rome. Have since declined it due to a V10 offer in a different market. Have not heard from Pepper. Going to call them and ask them to take me out of consideration.

Originally from Phila; Boalt; ~ top third.

Philly ties? I think they're really favoring Philly resident's this year (maybe they got burned last year or something). Congrats though, Nova or Temple? CB from Nova from above.
