I was looking at the CB/Offer rate, and thinking that 60% or so means that I have a decent shot. Then it occurred to me that screeners to callbacks is like a 45% success rate and I batted a solid 10%. Now I'm freaking out.
Well, I honestly think that 3 CBs will almost certainly get an offer. Also, there are a lot of CBs still to come from Thursday / Friday screeners.
I hope you're right. It's one thing though to be on the wrong side of the 45-50% callback equation. But Cahill, for example, calls back 80% of the people they interview, I thought it went well, and I didn't get a callback. I didn't get one reach, although I chose them very carefully. I didn't get many of my targets, although I chose those even more carefully. Seriously, bidding with average grades, prepared pretty well, and I can't get Katten, Chadbourne, Kaye Scholer? Kill me now.
ETA: I get that this sounds like Harvard entitlement douchiness. But it's also true that I bid extremely carefully, prepared extremely thoroughly, interviewed in a way that I thought was good. I did a mock with OCS during the week and I also contacted a partner who rejected me to improve my interviewing. I put myself on the line 30 times, and was rejected 27. So indulge me the douchiness for a bit.
