i'm beginning to wonder how long we usually have to wait until we hear decisions from firms.

what's the consensus here? 1-2 weeks? if you hear nothing after a week, does that mean you're in or out? do people hear back after 3 weeks?

Have offers to both MoFo SF and Covington SF-- where would you go if you're primarily interested in litigation (possibly IP)?

I really liked both offices, though I felt I connected more with the interviewers from MoFo.

I'd probably go with MoFo for IP Lit. Plus, they seem more fun (with their whole mojo thing going on).

Congrats! Since you already have an offer, any chance you'd be willing to share any insight for me? I have a CB there on Friday. Any advice?

re: K&E,
my feeling is that they've been interviewing massive number of candidates, bc each CB is only 4 interviewers?
so it's totally possible that they forgot or are too lazy to send out dings.

No word from anyone. Anyone heard back from them.


Since last post I've been dinged from Bingham SF. Has anyone heard from the other firms?

Just wondering, did the Bingham SF ding come by mail or email? I am expecting one myself.

Nope, still nothing from those firms. Perkins Coie planted a tree for me though.

My offer came more than a week after my callback, which was a couple of weeks ago. Good luck!
