So you were actually interviewed by GT? The names were changed (interviewers changed?) at some point during the day.

Has anyone heard anything yet from Shearman RF, Latham New York JS, Chadbourne, Hogan Lovells, or any of the friday interviews?

Also, is it normal to get calls over the weekend?

Random question, say that I got a callback today, obviously I would want to schedule one asap. However, the recruiting office is not open in the weekends and I get their voicemail when I call them. Should I leave a message or wait until Monday to call them?

If you leave a message then you have to wait for them to call you back. If you wait until Monday to call you can control when you make the call. I would just wait to call Monday.

To respond to multiple posts: Nothing else from Hughes, nothing from Shearman (RF), nothing from Chadbourne.

Also, has anyone heard from Sidley (SH and CG)?

Nothing on my end from them. Haven't heard anything either. I think it's a miss.

Ha, I would love to be in the position of having to fend off weekend callbacks... or getting any callbacks for that matter.

I wonder if it's the select few with most of the callbacks. This anonymous posting is making it difficult to figure out. I would imagine most will not be auto-cb and have to wait a bit. There are also other OCI going on right now, so who knows how firms consider/select all the candidates they see.

Also note that a lot of firms haven't shown any movement at all. I'm also getting nervous, but I think it's a little to early to really be upset.

In terms of Philly firms, I know a few people who have gotten multiple callbacks. Not sure about their exact grades but I don't think they are the very top by any stretch of the imagination. Perhaps Philly is trying to move very quickly this year to compete with the speed that New York firms seem to be known for?

In that case, perhaps most Philly firms (Pepper excepting) are also being shockingly cruel and obnoxious by snail-mailing dings. Reject me if you must, but please don't leave me hanging unless you're actually still considering me.

Correct me if I am wrong, but OCI at the other philly schools have not happened yet. Maybe Philly firms want to screen out the Penn people fast so they know what to do when they go visit the other schools? I have gotten Philly CBs relatively fast outside/before OCI from different firms.

Anyone else get asked what their LSAT score was? I won't out the firm, but I'm just curious if anyone else had anyone pop that unexpected question.
