There were two other people who were at Rutan for CB's when I was on mine not too long ago.

Me - Top 25 law school (midwest, but I've got significant bay area roots); law review; top 20%

It's a pain in the ass to get California people to talk to you out here, but this is what I ended up with for the region (like a good little law student, I also had some backups in Chicago):

OCI/Phone Interviews:
Squire Sanders (SF)
WSGR (SV)
Kirkland & Ellis (SF)
Sidley Austin (SV)

Callbacks:
Squire Sanders (SF)
WSGR (SV)
Kirkland & Ellis (SF)

Offers:
WSGR (SV)
Kirkland & Ellis (SF)

Having a hard time deciding between those two. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I've had no responses from any of them. Sedgwick sent an e-mail saying they are still making decisions, and Morgan Lewis suggested that I fill out their diversity application that I'm guessing was a mass e-mail. Other than that, silence.

I send e-mails to recruiters? Wait it out? Call crying and begging or an offer? :?


I know they've all extended offers, so if you haven't heard, the firms are probably waiting to see if anyone declines before giving out more offers. Have you followed up with all three recruiters, and what have their responses been?
