Historically, do firms call over the weekends for CBs? Just curious.

What is the read on bigFirm attendance and callback rates at NU this year? Is there anyone with knowledge of what it was like last year who can give a useful impression?

the only success i had was resume dropping an interviewer. I was invited to do a screener at their Chicago office.

anyone have 0 call backs like me ? should i be really really concerned at this point?
I have had 16 interviews, OCI being over, have heard 4 dings and no news from the rest.
i guess i am not the top pick by many of them, having seen some call backs from the ones that I have interviewed on this website, but would u say there's hope when I have not heard from them?
or is this just slow death waiting for ding mails to be sent out

i am not in a good shape :(

What have you done or are you doing to find a job outside of OCI? Sitting around being "really really concerned" isn't helpful, but you ABSOLUTELY CANNOT just wait and hope that something shakes out.

Just got rejected from a firm that I never interviewed with (didn't visit the hospitality suite either)...In fact, I didn't even bid on them...

Please excuse this question which likely has no answer but . . .

Does anybody have any data on the % of CB's that turn into offers?

Just having the usual law student nerotic anxiety fit right now.

do you have any suggestions on steps I should take at this point?

I am thinking of mass mailing to the firms that I have not interviewed /dropped my resumes

but honestly, kinda lost.
really, i don't know what went wrong, i have above average stats, relevant work experiences, and I didn't think i was a bad interviewee.
