Callback, offers, dings - CA thread!

Since it seems like CA firms move slower than the rest of the major markets, I thought it would be nice to have a separate thread to track OCI results for CA. Post away!

Top 20 non-LA, top 10%

Massmails - V50(75?) on up.

Dings - OMM
Screeners - F&J (offered); does anyone know how competitive their office is? Wondering if it's worth it to throw together ~8 screeners and fly to LA for them.

Was the MoFo callback for the LA or SF office?

not sure if anyone else is looking at Foley for LA specifically but has anyone heard back from them? I specifically want Foley LA and have not heard anything from them since a screening interview in early August... so I am thinking I am screwed but have not gotten a rejection either

I screened with Foley mid-august and my CB with them is this Friday. I don't think you're necessarily getting a ding though because a few people who screened the same day as me already got their dings. HTH and Good luck!
