Haven't heard a peep. I submitted about three weeks ago. Top 1% at a T14 (non T6).

Apparently someone I know had their callback earlier this week and already got an offer...

Damn, impressive. Kind of wish I had scheduled mine sooner. Still need to wait a bit for mine.

I love that Urquhart graduated cum laude from Fordham, landed Cravath out of law school, and now is a name partner (and hiring partner) at a very law-school-ranking cognizant firm. If he graduated today he wouldn’t land NLJ 250. You’d think that if anyone understood that great attorneys could come from anywhere, it would be him. Not that I have a problem with grade and school consciousness as a way to whittle down the stack of resumes, I just find it funny. I also like his pose in his law firm bio picture.

I have a friend who did a callback this week at a CA office and was told she'd hear back within a week.

I am under the impression that this is the real thing. The tone of the email is consistent with their informal culture. Mind sharing your stats?

Any thoughts on whether to indicate on their "Flyback Survey" that you're interested in another office as well? I'm interested in their DC office as well but I don't want to seem disinterested in the office I'm interviewing with.

dont ask/express interest in other offices until you have an offer. then, before you accept, ask if you can split with DC

I went in a suit, no tie. Was told that's how most people show up, though you absolutely would be fine in just slacks and a collared shirt if you'd rather do that.

I love that Urquhart graduated cum laude from Fordham, landed Cravath out of law school, and now is a name partner (and hiring partner) at a very law-school-ranking cognizant firm. If he graduated today he wouldn’t land NLJ 250. You’d think that if anyone understood that great attorneys could come from anywhere, it would be him. Not that I have a problem with grade and school consciousness as a way to whittle down the stack of resumes, I just find it funny. I also like his pose in his law firm bio picture.


This totally fits in with the firm's personality though. Admittedly I interviewed for them back in 2009 so things may have changed, but I doubt it. One of my friends (at CCN) interviewed at EIP and Urquhart was at his interview. Urquhart greeted my friend warmly and then immediately asked for my friend's grades, which he provided. (They were not in the top 20%.) Urquhart read the grades, and then got up from his seat and left the room without a word. Needless to say my friend did not get a callback. Obnoxious, IMO, but then again I think that style really appeals to some.

I think that the story was on Above the Law or TLS at the time. It does appeal to some people - the people who are big enough jerks to do the same thing. Add to that the fact that for all the bluster, the real cream of the crop wouldn't put up with their nonsense (ugly offices, crazy workload, worship of Quinn and Sullivan) and the image is not as baller as it seems.
