Why Latham over Gibson?


Slightly better partnership prospects, and slightly better at IP Lit (which is what I want to do).


Is there support for this?


Very interested in this. My understanding was that Gibson was less leveraged, so I figured partner prospects would be slightly better there.

Also, to participate, got an offer from Gibson and a CB from Latham.

How long after CB for Gibson? Do you know what day their hiring committee meets?

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


If you don't mind, how quickly did the Covington offer come after the callback? Anyone else who knows should feel free to answer too! Nearing 28 days on some other places...

Sorry, bro. When I got my offer same, the associates hinted that it wasn't the norm, but I may have read too much into it. Judging by these threads, it's absolutely the norm.

I hope you're still in it. Good luck.

I'm definitely curious about this as well. Does anyone know if WSGR only does email dings after screeners? I know they did at our school last year.

Very much wondering the same thing. I'm hoping that some people have turned them down and that they'll be able/willing to make a few additional offers this week to candidates who did callbacks earlier on.

I know this has been semi-discussed already but if I have not heard back from Foley (LA) after a screener in early August in my dinged? I mean obviously its not a great situation. I guess I am wondering if anyone has actually been dinged yet by Foley (LA)?

Yep, got the ding letter last week. Screener mid-August.

what's the timeline for Paul Hastings OC, if anyone has heard. It seems like they may not do the day-after offers (i hope).

MTO LA ding. Interview end of Aug, ding letter today. Non-CA t10, top 5% (approx), weak CA ties. Offers at Gibson, irell, OMM, mofo, Quinn, so now I have all my results from CBs. I know other threads discuss this, but they haven't gotten big responses, so anyone in here have any thoughts on Irell? Overall impressions/personal experience/rumors?

Mind sharing your stats? Also did your screener make the offer?
TY!
