Hah, SAME. I just did that. Just logged on to make sure all my stuff was straight and good to go. Freaking dead silence from over 10 places.


Do you two have your snail mail coming to D.C.? Many firms send dings that way... e-mail seems to be less frequent.

I've even gotten callback invitations through the mail (Ropes... those clowns), so they might not even all be bad.


No, going to a permanent address since I moved over the summer.

I received a CB invitation through email and I thought you generally received those via phone. You just never know.

Welp, I guess you've just been interviewing at firms who are slower / more formalized in the process of handing out callbacks. I've gotten some invitations weeks after i screened so it happens

They said at orientation the prospects of an offer from a callback is about 50/50...

Crap, that means an offer is never guaranteed.

Unfortunately, the 50 percent number is for all law schools. I imagine GW is near the bottom of the OCI barrel. I bet it is lower for us, but that is too helpful a number for CD... to collect

If GW is at the bottom of the OCI barrell, where in the barrel are GMU, AUWCL, UNC, Fordham...

I would suspect GW is near the middle of the barrel.

I batted around 0.500 in the 2010 OCI, which was pretty brutal.

Stats? Number of callbacks?

I don't know 50/50 just seems a bit too optimistic for me. I think realistically with 4 CBs you will probably just have 1 offer. 2 if you are a great interviewer. 6-8 callbacks will likely yield 2-3 offers. More like 25%-33% of CBs yield offers IMO.

I was an IP transfer from a shit school with decent grades, but nothing crazy. I went 4/10 on offers/CBs.

I think that, in the aggregate, the 50% number isn't that far-fetched. It seems to be representative of the entire interviewing cohort because stronger candidates will often net a higher CB:offer ratios (I know of some from the top of my class that pulled naerly 100% CB:offer ratios with TONS of CBs), whereas the rest of the candidates scatter around the curve (e.g. someone with 1 CB will either go 100% or 0%, and, as the previous anon said, many will land around 25-35%).

ETA: for those doing 3LOLOCI for IP, I bid (to cover my bases, and never ended up interviewing) last year and still got a bunch of screeners. Thus, there is STILL HOAP if you're left at the end of 2L summer with no offers.

GL everyone!
