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%


Do you mean that the people you know who have had callbacks have not yet been accepted or rejected?

Lame, I'm in the same boat. 3L, callback shortly after labor day, haven't heard anything as of yet.

I received a CB with both CT firms and currently have an offer from one, pending on the other. I won't say which one so don't ask. These markets are small so I doubt many offers go out. Just fyi that they are moving along. (Well one at least)

Don't think shipman has made offers to 2Ls or 3Ls, maybe they are waiting til they interview everyone rather than having rolling offers?

They came to OCI and interviewed 2Ls, but that's all I know. They're a pretty small firm.

I had a callback with them recently. I think they sent me an e-mail after the screener. It looks like a great firm, but they only have one summer position, so I'm not holding my breath.

Grammar edit.

I see. I guess I will give up hope that they just hadn't gotten around to making callbacks yet! Thank you.

Any Shipman offers following their Tuesday HR meeting?

Can anyone confirm how long it takes for offers to go out historically?

Anyone know of smaller CT firms that typically hire summer associates/summer clerks, but don't necessarily participate in OCI at law schools?

I just went back to the beginning of this thread and searched for the word "offer." So far, only one person has reported an offer from one firm (presumably DPit or Shipman). Maybe Connecticut is just super-slow with the offers? Or maybe nobody is reporting the offers they're getting/hearing about?

It occurs to me that once one firm starts making offers, the others will have to follow suit if they want to compete for the top picks...
