If it makes you feel any better, I have the distinction of probably being the first person in our class to get a post CB ding. Got double digit callbacks from eip so I should be OK but talk about shaking your confidence.

Don't worry about that. Especially if it's at a firm that has a really low cb to offer ratio. I also got a CB ding and now have two V5 offers. The CB ding really just is about fit, not your charms.

Is anyone else still waiting to hear or all the CB decisions are pretty much out by now?

I haven't heard from about 10 firms. I assume they're all snail mail (or just no notify) dings, luckily the firms I have heard from have been mostly positive.

I'm down to 8 that I haven't heard from and I had 32 screeners (9 dings, 15 CB's, 2 offers (so far)).

Anyone else get invited to the Davis Polk offer dinner by email without an actual offer phone call? Hoping this is just a timing issue and not a glitch. Callback was yesterday.

If anyone was in the same boat, call just came. A few hours after the email. Glad it wasn't a mistake. Good luck to everyone waiting.

99.9% sure we should give up hope here. It makes no sense that she would wait until 2 days after her colleague to make calls.

Friend got a callback today. I haven't heard from a few places, but I'm also sure there are some dings in the mail. I know that someone posted a Cahill callback ages ago, but they call back about 80% of the interviews and I know that none of my friends who interviewed with them were called back, so maybe there's still some coming?
Anyone hear from Jones Day Boston?
LOL literally as I typed that, email ding from Jones Day.

Just got a rejection from Bingham Boston. They wrote something like, "The process this year has been extraordinarily competitive, and your skills show that you will make an excellent attorney. However, we are unable to offer you the opportunity for further interviews at this time." It's corny, but I think it was a nice touch.

I don't think anyone has posted, but the associates I met with during my CB claimed that people from Monday had heard back. None of the people I know that have done CBs there have heard yet, though.
