Bumping the Potter Anderson news....has anyone heard anything?

"Not I," said the Northern Delaware hopeful.


What gives?! Potter must have given out call backs at this point right? It's been two weeks since screener right?

No firm offers here, but I do have bites from public interest organizations and an offer for summer work at one. While I would much rather work for the PD or DA, I realize public interest hiring is an uphill battle.

Not necessarily. Smaller firms in secondary markets can be slow as molasses.

Have done 7+ callbacks, and none have resulted in offers or rejections yet. Still several more to go, but I am starting to get a bit nervous. Primarily targeted NYC, with a couple secondary markets. Grades are pretty good, and on LR, but that doesn't seem to be helping at the callback stage. Whatever happened to New York moving fast?

Hope this is true cause I really liked the firm. But I have a feeling the people with potter callbacks are just too busy to waste time on TLS since their doing CBs!! HAHA!

Yo, chill. 7 callbacks with several more to go? Law review? Go have a beer. New York is a bit quicker in inviting callbacks but all firms can take a little time assessing their critical mass levels when it cones to actually extending offers.

Offer from Milbank. Callback yesterday. Some firms are slow, some are fast. Entirely depends on the firm, notsomuch the city. (At the post-callback stage, that is).

Your interview was last Friday? If you don't mind sharing, what time did you get the call?

Has anyone who went to their callback night on 8/28 heard anything?
