Are congratulation emails by the partners and associates that interviewed you fairly common, after having received an offer? Thanks!

What about very friendly emails from super hot young associate who you interviewed with... It's a trap?

It's important in determining whether the offer was legit or not. There are a lot of fake offers out there, and one of the surest signs they're fake is when you don't get congratulatory e-mails afterwards.

In the legal profession you have to learn to deal with unexpected events, many of which are purposefully intended to frustrate you be an adversarial opposing counsel. "Fake offers" are designed to train future lawyers for this. It's an artifact of the old master-apprentice model of legal training.
