K&L very quickly matched the last one right? I doubt that they will match but I have to think it makes DWT's low number even more pressurized.

Well the issue is thet K&L already raised other offices and left some markets (including Seattle) untouched. Will they go back and raise Seattle? Maybe, but it's not clear that it'll happen particularly soon.

During my CB they mentioned the recruiting committee meets every Thursday, although they didn't say how long it would take after that.

Has someone gotten the WSGR offer yet?

I've been told Dorsey will make all their hiring decisions today or tomorrow, has anyone heard back yet? Or even just anyone with a CB who heard differently?

Haha, my CB was Thursday so I'm just going to pretend the offer went out Tuesday or Wednesday and there's still hope.

...would you prefer the truth or a lie?

I wouldn't automatically assume you're out. A good chunk of time passed between my CB and the offer.

Truth is fine I suppose. How much time passed for you? Either way, congrats on the offer!

My DLA interviewer said they were only planning to take one SA (for litigation) next summer and that they were in no rush to adhere to the normal timeline either.

Haven't heard anything about DWT, but I did get a post-screener email ding earlier this week.

It depends. If you haven't heard back after your screeners by now it's probably over. If you've had callbacks then there is still hope. Previous years have had offers coming as late as October.

It has been 3 weeks since I finished my last of 4 callbacks and I still have no offers. To next year's class: I would strongly recommend mass mailing NY in July/August so that you don't end up like me.

For what it is worth, and I hate being the optimistic person, but I was about to accept an offer for a NY firm I didn't really want after striking out on the west coast and out of nowhere got a response to mass mail that led to an offer with a few days for a California firm. Don't give up hope.
