I just say that I'm following up. I don't divulge beyond that.
Keep your chin up. I'm still waiting on a couple of firms to reply to me as well, but I've been mass-mailing firms all over the place and have gotten some screener requests. Don't wait!!
I have too and nothing has bitten. I'm above median at a T10 with awesome work experience. This whole process is defeating. I should have never left my job.
Out of curiosity, what do you think the reason is for your disappointing job hunt? It seems like with the people I know, work experience has been what seals the deal for people with medianish grades (as in, people getting multiple V5 offers if they have awesome work experience even if they are around median).
A combination of so many things. First, I wanted to do something really specific, but those groups aren't hiring, so I switched to a more general "corporate" ploy halfway through this process. However, I was previously in finance so I've just been attacked nonstop with "why would you ever leave and go to law school." I think [thought] I had good answers, but it doesn't seem to be working. I have a friend at a different T14 who is experiencing the same thing. She's now thinking of going back into business. Second, awful OCI luck. I got 6 less interviews than the average. Third, just awful luck.
I've been told I'm a really good interviewer so while I'm sure there is something I can improve, its hard to put the blame on my interviewing skills.
