got a "you're on the waitlist" letter today. It kind of stinks being in limbo for another week or so. Hopefully it will turn into an offer, working at FBT would be great.

Fellow waitlister here. Shooting for Ohio. I don't think they would send the waitlist letter to everyone. It would seem kind of cruel to keep hope alive if there truly wasn't any. On the other hand, perhaps they want to keep their options open.

Can someone explain to me FBT's rationale. They claim to have a hard cutoff of the top 10% of the class, yet only pay $80,000. Their peer firms (thinking mainly of the Cincinnati NALP firms) pay 20k more and seem to have a more flexible cut-off.

In short, what gives? Is there some awesome bonus structure I'm missing or is the billable requirement stupidly low? Or do they mainly just aim for the top 10% of Chase, UDayton, etc.?

1000 billable hour minimum with 800 nonbillables.

They have a first-year program where you only bill 1000 hours and you instead work more with clients/learn how to practice. It gets bumped up to market in the 2nd year. First year salary is actually $90k.

They do resume forwarding at my school, which is significantly better than NKU/Dayton, and still ranked better than UK/Cincy. Cutoff is still top 10%/prefer journal.

Well, that would explain it. I could've sworn they listed 80k on the NALP form. Thanks.

No worries; it was for Cincy. Not too bummed because (thankfully) I have another offer in hand. Good luck!

Anyone know what the class size will be for the Cincinnati office? I think there were 16 people on the callback.

Oh, I didn't even know that there was a second day. I knew they split a morning/afternoon session, but was unaware that they had two separate callback days. Rather large commitment to recruitment seeing as each call back involved meeting with two one-on-one people plus four people in a panel interview.

NALP reports that 4 were expected in 2011. So I'm thinking 4 +/- 2?


Anyone who got an offer thinking about declining?
