Wachtell offers?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Aug 31, 2011 10:01 pm

Had my callback last week and I'm beginning to freak out.

Does anyone know how quickly Wachtell lets you know whether you have the offer?

Do people with callbacks/offers from Wachtell generally sweep the v5 and 10 as well?

I'd say so. I got dinged at the Wachtell screener, but easy CBs from every other V10. Top 5-6% at HLS, too. Already three offers from the 10, 2 of them in the V5.

yes

I got callbacks at every V10 I applied to, however, I didn't get an offer at everyone. I did get offers from CSM and S&C though. I don't know why I got dinged at a couple of the other V10s.

I think there's a bit of randomness. Wachtell CB coming up and offer at Cravath, but DPW ding -- guy at the screener couldn't care less what I was saying and was a huge jerk. Landed s&c, stb, pw etc. callbacks though.

You're really not allowed to "freak out" about not receiving a Wachtell offer. I laughed when I got my Wachtell ding.

I would consider it a HUGE disappointment if I didn't get an offer

Those people should develop similar standards for the exercise of self-control and discretion, learning not to "freak out" about things that are outside of their control and then post about them on message boards.

People freak out about a lot of things outside of their control and vent about it. It's called human nature. If you have an issue with that, talk to a psychiatrist.

I find it hard to believe that WLRK has not given out any offers yet.

Does anyone know if there have been any calls made?

liar

I interviewed at WLRK and they said they're not giving out offers until they interview everyone from a select school. Since they only really recruit from 5 schools HYSCN, more than one person should have gotten an offer and we would be hearing more about those offers.

Don't really think what he wrote was all that douchey. If you have insane stats, then I don't see what's wrong with saying that not getting an offer would be a huge disappointment.

This is pretty abusive use of your moderator status, imo.

I'm not sure if he/she interviewed during on-campus interviewing or through another means, but he/she definitely has an offer. Sorry--I'm sure more are coming.

Could we at least get the callback/offer timeline?

Was it more than 1 week or less?
