That partner really grilled & challenged me, especially on my answers for why law & why Cravath. Nothing I said seemed to be good enough for him. Plus, the answers for why Cravath MUST be specifically for Cravath alone. At one point, the partner said that what I said would apply to WLRK & S&C as well, so my answer was not good enough. I have found that such answers that apply to a handful of firms are good enough for interviewers at other firms, where I have received multiple offers, but not CSM. He also asked some substantive "gotcha" questions & tried to trip me up w/ some hypos, like a law school prof. That being said, I think CSM was a reach for me anyway, not to mention the fact that I probably would not want to work for the partner I met. I got a snail mail ding about a week afterward. Hope this helps.
