I would say so...but given my luck with CBs so far I'm guessing my sense of what that means is wrong

From all reports, top 10% people at Rutgers are doing much better in Philly/OCI in general this year than the year before (including some w/out LR).

Dude, that stinks. Did you go to undergrad in Philly? Maybe you can call the firm and asks for an honest evaluation.

When did you do your Duane Morris CB? Stats?

Also to anyone else who has gotten a ding from Duane Morris following a CB, when did you do your CB?

Thanks, I've been waiting since August and am just trying to figure out where I stand.

CCN transfer, was top 10% at T25. I did my Duane Morris CB in mid-August and got a rejection about 2-3 weeks later. Likely because I don't have significant Philly ties (thinking this is the same reason Ballard said no).

Similar story regarding DM CB --> rejection. Mid-August; MVP transfer; Philly ties through old school.

Re: Skadden, as far as i know, no decision was to come out until early this week. Do you know when this person had a CB?

Has anyone from OCI received rejections from: Skadden (DE), Archer & Greiner, Blank Rome or Stradley Ronon? Total radio silence and its going on 3 weeks for some of these spots.

Yeah I'm also curious about this. Have a CB later this week, wondering what the situation might be when I walk in. Sorry for hijacking the thread!

It's cool, nobody cares enough about Delaware to give it its own thread.

Dear Duane Morris: email dings are just as effective. I am tired of waiting for an answer.

I received a rejection from Blank Rome by snail mail. Radio silence as well from Skadden DE.

The radio silence is by far the worst part of this process. Being in limbo means I don't know if I should stay positive or just assume the worst. Blank Rome was seriously a month ago today. One. Month.

How long have you been waiting? It will be 6 weeks for me on Thursday, which can't be good.

Are any of the big firms still scheduling a decent amount of callbacks, or are things pretty much done? (I was going to call the firms I mass-mailed that haven't said no and ask for an interview, so I'm wondering which ones to focus on.)

I wouldnt be so quick to think that your wait is indicative of a pending ding. I was dinged quite swiftly after my callback (like two days), so you may be in some sort of hold list....which is better than outright rejection. Keep the faith.

If you don't get a call the Friday after your interview from DM, you can assume it's a ding...

Any Dechert offers/post-callback dings? Wondering how long after my callback to expect an answer?
