Yeah, without grades. I'm under the impression that a fairly large number of people are being interviewed at the target schools, so I assume they will play a large role down the road. Don't know much else about the program otherwise, so if anyone has any idea of what the interview process will be like, how many spots they're interviewing for, etc., please share.

Anyone interview yet? Know what to expect? Skadden seems to be very secretive with this program.

Know there have been quite a few others with callbacks already. Has anybody heard either way (offer or rejection) or is everyone still hanging in the balance?

They said that they'd get back to me in 2 weeks. Yesterday was 2 weeks and nada.

They have to be, don't they? I mean, it's almost a month after they were supposed to be out. Figured I wouldn't be hearing from them and moved on a few weeks ago.
Don't know of anyone that's received any word though. So I don't know.

I know of many people who applied, and nobody I've talked to recently has heard back. I emailed about a week ago regarding the timeline for decisions and no response. There might be no hope...but I'll be an optimist until the end.

EDIT: OP
Yeah I know a lot of people that applied too. No word. So either we just run in very unsuccessful circles or they haven't released anything yet.

Seems pretty backwards though...they're going to want to pick the best candidates, but the best candidates are the ones that probably had a lot of other offers(probably exploding), so they're all going to be gone very soon if not already

Is he also working in the Chi office? I think we're all interested in a program that's specific to the NY office.

I also know multiple people who were involved in the process and still haven't heard back. Doesn't this make Skadden less appealing for 2L OCI? I don't understand exactly what's going on here.

Perhaps it was just a resume collection scheme :shock:

Wasn't this program solely targeted at HSCN?

That's what I thought. I didn't even hear anything back at all. I know one person who was interviewing with them though.
