Did anyone get an email from Dickstein saying that their candidacy is still under consideration? Also reply if you haven't received this email, but have already had a callback.

General. I'm not sure if I'm going to accept it yet. It's down to Dickstein and one other firm and they're pretty much neck and neck. Both offers are off the table next Thursday, so I'm going to try to make a decision by Monday.


Did you end up choosing Dickstein Shapiro ny or the other firm?



any updates?


Went with the other firm

How are you sure that they will only pick one person? One person for general practice? Or patents? Or both?

I interviewed with them and they told me straight out they are hiring 2 people this year, just like last year. They do not want to overhire SAs and then no-offer them like they did in 2010(?).

I'm still waiting btw.

For those that already had CBs, how did your interviews go? Did you enjoy your interviews? I'm also still waiting for the rejection e-mail, I haven't heard a peep from them yet.

I had a phone interview scheduled for Friday but canceled it after getting an offer. So I think they are still doing callbacks.
