I know that one of the smaller two firms made at least a couple callback calls today.

Word on the street is that Pepper's already emailed dings, but supposedly only to "overqualified" candidates.

Rumor also has it that Pepper started emailing callbacks.

What does that even mean? Sorry you are a rising 2L, way too overqualified for our firm, we are looking for someone with less experience.

Yield protection, I think (based on fear of flight risks). And by overqualified, I mean top grades and/or law review.

Dinged by Pepper via email. Gay Parks was my interviewer. Not sure if I am overqualified; Pepper was actually a target of mine. Top 1/3rd, significant work experience, and ironclad Philly ties. Would have seriously considered working there. Oh well. At least I get to avoid their somewhat different callback routine I guess.

Can you elaborate on the underlined. Curious on what to expect. Thanks.

Dings (and presumably callbacks) for Pepper candidates interviewing with Kassem Lucas.

Is this for people who interviewed in NYC or other offices? I think they are still interviewing NYC candidates tomorrow.

It doesn't look like they interviewed for New York today, so other offices I presume. Could be wrong.
