Do you ask because you're not sure if you should take an offer you have, or do you ask because you're waiting for things to get desperate enough to start hustling?

Well, wanted to ask if there has been any case if callbacks from the OCI ever happened at this point.
(not ready to empty out hope i guess although i kinda expect the ding emails are in process)

i have one call back scheduled next week, and am also already mass mailing to firms in nyc
but getting a call back in anyone of the mentioned above would definitely end this anxiety way sooner.

btw, do you know how mass mailing to nyc (or cities other than chicago here for that matter) actually works?
am i flying out for 1st interview, and then 2nd round of interviews equivalent to callbacks ?
has anyone been through this or know how this works?

Was told by a guy at my orientation who hustled his way into a biglaw job (he was class of 2012 I believe) that he offered/paid his own way for mass mail screeners and callbacks outside of Chicago. Not sure if it got him the gig, but it can't hurt to offer.

I doubt any firm would pay for a screener so I think if they are asking for a screener it makes sense to bite the bullet and pay to fly yourself out there. For CBs, they at least want you so I would see if they'd pay for it and only pay my own way if they weren't willing.

thanks so much~ kinda obvious question, but you mention this(offering to pay for the trip) when u hear back from them right?
it would be ridiculous to offer this in cover letter..

also, when one mass mails, has anyone ever mailed to the hiring partner instead of a legal recruiter?

Congrats, man. I personally see it as helpful it really does prove you really only need one CB as long as it results in an offer.
