AGG has made call-backs but not any offers as far as I know. I've heard they make offers later in the season.

so I assume these phone callbacks based off of mass mailing are just a screener?

And earlier, obviously. Anyone sign on the dotted line yet? I'm leaning A&B.

I'd love to know how many people with A&B offers have offers elsewhere too they are considering over AB.
when did you do your callback, and when did you get an offer, if you don't mind me asking, to the person who is about to sign up?

I can't really answer the first question; I only know about myself. (I obviously do have offers at A&B and other shops.)
I did my CB about 3 weeks ago and got the offer about a week later. I'm not really "about to sign up." I'm more torn straight down the middle between A&B and K&S, and was hoping someone here would help me in my plight.

What do you want to do? Lit? Corp? Something else? Also, mind sharing your stats?

I think lit, but I have 0 concept of a corp assoc job.
Stats: near the top of class at Non T20, T1 southeastern school (prefer not to narrow beyond that).

I am the guy with the Skype screener above. Turned into a phone screener due to technical difficulties. Best advice? Make sure you pay careful attention to the tone of voice the other person is using so you know what you say isn't stupid as all getout. It is VERY had to tell if your jokes are well received. Must have gone well though; received a CB on the spot.

I've heard on reliable authority (won't say more than this) that K&S's corporate division is way better than Alston's. The reverse is probably true for IP (K&S's IP is good, but I felt like NYC drove it as opposed to ATL - not true for Alston). The rest? Probably not that different. The firms are slightly different in terms of culture: both have longer hours than most of the other Atlanta-based firms. K&S is just a little bit more driven than Alston is, and Alston focuses just a little bit more on the people side of things. It really depends on what works for you.

Nothing here. Nobody in our career services office had heard of any callbacks going out either.

Anyone know whether Alston gives decisions on the same day that the hiring committee meets or waits instead?

That's because the Atlanta firms are giving out a pitiful number of callbacks, and an even more pitiful number of offers.

What makes you say that? I don't know that many people from my school shooting for Atlanta, so I'm sort of out of the loop there. Explain?

Not the anon poster from above, but I feel like the statement is pretty explanatory on its own.

Atlanta is normally a reach for my school. This year, it's almost impossible, with the exception of 1-2 people at the very top of the class. The market has just seen an influx of attorneys in recent years and many firms are cutting back or have completely eliminated their summer programs.

I understood the assertion, was just wondering what info backs it up. As I said, I don't know that many people going for Atlanta, so I'm not privy to a lot of the numbers about who is getting CBs/offers where.

There was a large influx of offers/acceptances from my T20 school to Atlanta this year. Could be part of the troubles others are having.
