Not trying to be controversial, but do a lot of Non-URMs attend minority job fairs?

Most likely an Asian. Asians are over respresented not under.

Not the above anon, but I'm an ORM who went to SEMJF. 8 screeners, 4 CBs, 2 offers so far. And I struck out at OCI.

Also LGBT/Disabled aren't URMs in the street definition, but I know they are welcome at most minority job fairs.

Oh cool. Thanks, and congrats on the offers after the OCI strikeout! That must feel awesome.

They are minority job fairs, not URM job fairs. So a lot of non-AA/Mex/PR/NA show up.

I admit that when the poster said non-URM I immediately assumed white hetero aryan male. Massive logic fail on my part!

It feels amazing. I had some mass mail CBs too. Never expected to strike out at OCI. Good thing I was prepared.

How long did you wait until you got your offer?

General question: If I've followed up with the recruiter already, and it's been a little over a week since that follow-up but 5 weeks since my callback, should I follow up again?

2 1/2 weeks from CB ---> offer.

I wouldn't follow up again unless you have another offer to tell them about. Wait another week, in my opinion. I followed up with the other firms today (4 days after offer) to tell them about the offer and immediately got those 2 rejections. But I anticipate if you recently spoke to the recruiter there is no reason to follow up, unless you just want to reaffirm your interest in the firm.

Sigh, phone call ding from my top choice. I was so excited to see a 2 minute voice-mail, only to get shut down. Still waiting on one other firm, and my continual follow-ups to 100 mailings in July are my only hope.

Got it -- thank you!
Do you mind sharing which region your offer was from? I'm waiting from firms in the LA / SF regions.

LA and SF is super rough. The offer was from Denver. But the withdrawal I had was from an LA firm, who said that they had a small class and didn't want to put out too many offers at once, so I would imagine that is somewhat the stage most LA and SF firms are at if you've already had a CB with them.

Yeah, phone rejections suck. I got two of them, but one time the partner told me "tell me when you get back in Denver and we'll get lunch." What could that be about?

phone call ding?! Wow. I guess it's considerate and more personal than a letter, but they've got to know it gets your hopes up briefly.

sorry dude. I'm sure your offer is around the corner.

Sadly no. She was decidedly mannish. Meaning that she was a man.

A voicemail ding is just TTT. I took the one phone call ding that I got for 1L summer and turned it into an offer for 2L summer. It really depends on the situation, but I took it as an indication of how tough a decision it was and an indication that the people at the firm wanted me to keep in touch. I kept in touch with the people I liked at that office, and by the time 2L OCI rolled around, the interview process for me was really just a formality.
