I had a CB recently... and after... well, I can see why they are having issues (though everyone I met was super-nice).

Care to share why? I'd like to hear your thoughts.

Mostly a personality fit. Plus, I didn't meet with any juniors/anyone who summered with the firm, so it was hard to get a good "read" on the place since everyone was a lateral and it was kind of an odd mix of people. It was also a little on the formal side, which I expected and is probably part of the "Boston" connection. But overall, I don't think I could see myself there and would be very surprised if I get an offer at all.

Also, it's hard to compare because I had an interview with a firm that was basically a perfect "fit" the day before (and I got an offer from that firm less than 24 hours after I left the interview).

It's Friday night. Chill. And like I said, I'm probably getting a DING anyway.

for people who had CBs, is it typical for them to add the hiring partner at the end of the interview if he wasnt originally on your list

Probably not, but they were shuffling people around at my CB, so it's possible someone originally on your list was just busy.

I had already met with 5 people. And then they added the HP. I still don't expect anything since I've gone 0/5 so far, but I was thinking it has to be a good sign.

Any idea on turnaround time? I actually heard HP is out of office this week wonder if that affects anything.

Dunno. Had my CB late last week and haven't heard. If the HP is out of the office that would make some sense... though I didn't think the interview went particularly well and I'm not expecting an offer.
