When you said you were expectinng, does this mean they told you they were going to get back to you in a week?

It's more than fine to ask who the interviewers are. I've done it before, and they respond promptly.

They usually give a list at the end of the day before the interview. But don't be surprised if you get a whole new group of people once you show up.

It's been a week, only heard from less than half. Slower than I hoped. How's everyone else doing?

i've heard from all the NY firms and all but a couple DC firms (and based on reports in this thread they're probably dings at this point), but only a few CA firms. in total i've heard from a little over half.

Are you doing CBs before or after OCI? Do you think it matters one way or another since it's IP group hiring?

Mine too, but I know people have been trying to stuff CBs into this past week. I am going to try to block out some time during OCI to do the closer ones.

Have to say, after my Fitzpatrick interview, I wasn't surprised to see the story about a gun being pulled on a summer associate: --LinkRemoved--

what do you mean? from your interview with Fitzpatrick you actually got that kind of impression from them? From my interview I got exactly the opposite impression :/

Yeah, I thought the interviewer was pretty cold. Doesn't mean it's not a good fit for you though.
