I'm sure you know this, but it's Procter, not Proctor. Careful if you're writing them follow-up emails, or anything.

Well, the firm is doing CB's in October and clearly has not yet filled their class or wants someone from my T14, I have no idea... all I know is that they called me and gave me a CB and I doubt they'd pay for me to fly into NYC for the lulz (no I do not go to a driving distance T14).

And whatever my personal offer situation is or is not, a significant number of my transfer at my do have offers. (Also I'm the transfer and am not the OP and know it's Procter). I only posted ITT to see if there was any more information on the GP NYC office since OP started the thread today and I have a CB coming up.

Turned down an offer from them recently. Beautiful offices, great people, really loved the place. Turn-around from CB to offer for me was under 3 days but it may be different later in the game.

I'm a transfer to a CCN, and I am still getting CB's from NY firms. I have a few offers already on the table, but I'm just looking to see what else is available before I make a final decision (not the OP, btw)

Anything special to note about practice area strengths/firm culture/etc. that would be helpful to talk about at a CB? Sounds like you had a great experience at your CB even if you ended up turning them down.

Strong in white collar, very strong in real estate, a lot of big pharmaceutical clients. It's def a Boston firm so it's a bit more formal, but I liked that about it. You'll want to see if working at the smaller NY office of a Boston firm is right for you, so don't hesitate to ask questions about that. All-around I really liked everyone I met. I think you get (or can get) the names of who's interviewing you in advance. I'd also point out that they have several partners on the younger side which I think makes for a better overall vibe/atmosphere. Best of luck

I didn't interview for IP so I can't speak to that, I'm just giving you what I learned anecdotally FWIW

Not sure. Maybe we're on some sort of hold list and they're waiting to see who accepts their other offers?
