OMM - Ding 2 weeks post CB
Paul Hastings - Offer on next work day (spanning weekend)
Latham - Offer on third day
Gibson - Offer over dinner
Irell - Pending, four business days

Similar experience:

Gibson - offer at dinner
Quinn - offer before end of callback
MoFo - offer within 5 days
Irell - offer within 3 days
Munger - pending

I think labor day weekend and vacations slow things down, so I don't think people should be worried if the timeline is slower right around now. Right now it's down to Gibson and Irell for me, but if MTO offers it'll come down to Irell and MTO, I think. When's the earliest people have heard from MTO? I think I saw a week earlier in a thread somewhere?

Does Irell still tend to offer most people it calls back?

Hey! We should hang out; very similar schedule. Good luck.

CB -> offer from, in order, Quinn SF (day of cb), OMM SF (week after CB), Irell OC (week after CB). Waiting to hear from Kirkland, MoFo, Gibson all SF.

I'm leaning towards Quinn. Liked the people, like the Bay. I'm sort of thinking of asking Irell if I could apply to their LA office, because I realize now I'd prefer LA to OC (didn't know much about SoCal at the time). Thoughts on this?

Good luck ya'll.

I assume this is all in LA? Or what market?

My results:

Paul Hastings - offer after 2 business days
Irell - same day offer
Gibson - offer at dinner
Munger - offer after 1 week

All LA. Probably going Munger, but still considering the others. Is anyone considering splitting?

I'd go Munger as well. Can I ask what your stats are?

Yeah I'd definitely go Munger. And I think the consensus is that splitting is risky ITE.

Offers:

Kirkland & Ellis (LA) - next day offer
Gibson (OC) - dinner offer
STB (LA & Palo Alto) - offer after 2 days
Proskauer (LA) - offer after one week
OMM (LA) - offer after one week

I am leaning towards STB (LA). I want to do corporate work and want a name brand that will give me the most national mobility when/if I get booted out. Are there major downsides to one of these major NY firms with an LA office? Should I be more serious about Gibson or OMM? Thoughts?

Callbacks thus far:
Kirkland SF and SV
Quinn SF
Howard Rice SF
MoFo SF
Covington SF
Mayer SV

No News:
MTO
Paul Hastings SF
Davis Polk SV

No dings yet, but MTO is almost assuredly one.

Top 1% or so at a CA school.

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

This makes no sense. Partnership prospects are pretty much a wash, and if IP Lit is what you want to do, why is Latham LA your dream firm over LA firms with actual IP lit practices (Irell and Quinn)?

Haven't heard back yet from Irell, but I did not like the vibe of the place on CB. Quinn was a ding for me. I guess I meant to say "dream firm in the sense that I haven't been dinged, and therefore the dream is still (hopefully) attainable."

Anyone do STB or DPW in SV and know how long they get back to you or when their hiring committee meets?
