Wow. How does a firm go from reporting to NALP that they're looking for 6 2L's to canceling the program entirely? Must have been a rough quarter?

Congrats on the DP callback! When did you hear?


Thanks! We'll have to see how it goes. I believe I heard from them Wednesday.

Sooooo, it's been over a week since Shipman was on campus. Nobody's heard anything from them?

I think Shipman might be being extremely selective, or something. I interviewed with them and had a really good interview (and even after having finished OCI I look back at it and know it went really well). I grew up in/have family in CT, had personal ties to the firm, hit it off with the interviewer, and came from BC/BU. Got dinged a week after the interview. Not like I was expecting a callback, but I was a little surprised to see it.

Shipman will be a while, so don't fret just yet

Withdrew from post-CB consideration, good luck!

Got rejected from Shipman in the mail yesterday. I only had a screener, no callback interview offered.

If you don't mind me asking... when was your screener? 2L or 3L?

Shipman was on campus at UConn interviewing 2L's on September 8.

Hey, can people who were dinged (or got positive responses) by Updike PM me with their stats?

Anyone (please specify if 2L or 3L) had a callback at Shipman & Goodwin? If so, have you heard anything yet and how did you hear? Thanks, would really appreciate the info. I had a callback with them (3L) and am waiting, was not given a definite time frame as to when they would respond.

How does the OCI process work for 3Ls? Did you summer at a firm last year? Did you just apply for a screener with Shipman through OCI like everyone else?

3Ls just apply through OCI, fewer spots generally though

I just received this email today, 20 days later. How strange.

That office must be hyper-competitive to get an offer at; I know of people across the country who had CBs there and none have been rejected. The rate must be like 25-33%
