PM me.


Why so secretive? Just let everyone know what you know. Change names to protect the innocent if you have to.

Sigh, nevermind then.



Can you give the reason why you need to be so secretive?

Can you say which set of interviewers you were with?

Drinker Biddle snail mail ding

3.5-3.6- this one I don't really get, maybe the "it's a safety firm" thing was in my head, but thought the interview went ok

Firms with small class sizes make for terrible safeties.

I think law school admissions may mess with people's ability to understand legal hiring (particularly interpretation of things like medians).

Well, if a school has 3.5/162 medians, and you have a 3.7/170, you probably feel pretty good about your chances there, and rightly so. If a firm has a 3.45 CB median and you have a 3.6, that honestly says very little about your chances at that firm.

Yup. Seems like if you don't click with your interviewer, you're toast regardless of your GPA.

I don't think that's universally true at the big firms. Applying to firms that are only taking two people, or are in secondaries where you have no ties? Now that'll sink you.

What happened to Chicago firms moving slowly? The interviews were just today! Any CBs with interviewers starting with M & I?

I dunno. I've interviewed with 6 Chi firms and only have heard from one. Granted 3 were today, but still if some places are making same day callbacks this waiting is really shaking my confidence.

Some firms do same day CBs. Others where interviewers make the calls might depend. See Jenner - apparently Thursday people got calls from their guy, and Wednesday people have crickets.

I was warned about this from some 3ls...I think we just have to roll with it a bit and hoped that these firms doing stuff early might do a few waves
