Don't want to turn this into a Q&A (and not sure I'm supposed to), but I'll answer you briefly: great summer; the people I really liked are still here, and I still really like them. As for callbacks, my generic advice for any callback is to remember you're interviewing the firm just as much as they you. While this doesn't mean act like a jerk, it's a good (and realistic) way to frame things in your mind so that you don't get too nervous. In all your callbacks, try to get a sense for if this is the type of person you'd like to have on the other end of an email or phone call, and the type of person you could learn something form. Pay particular attention to the folks in the practice area you're interested in, since you'll work with them more than with the others.
Looking back on my own experience, at the moment you're probably more worried about making a good impression and getting an offer. This is important too, but remember they're simply looking for if they could get along with you. Your research and writing skills are evident from your resume and you can showcase them as a summer. For now, just be friendly, enthusiastic, and optimistic.
