UW student here. Apparently a batch of those went out last week, as well, seeking demographic information from people who had screening interviews with the firm. Based on the experience of classmates, it doesn't seem to be an indicator of anything else (likelihood of CB or offer).

UW student, haven't heard of many offers outside of Patent/IP boutiques yet. Callbacks are starting to wrap up for the satellite firms (DLA, Fenwick, WSGR, Dorsey, etc), also K&L, Graham & Dunn, Foster, Mills Meyer, and a handful of the local firms are in the middle or tail end of callbacks. Seems like there has been no movement with PC or DWT that I have heard of yet for UW.

UW student - CB and rejection from K&L. No one has heard anything from Lane Powell since our OCI interviews as far as I understand.

Same thing happened to me. I thought they only called back two UW students per year, and one got an offer. That makes two dings......surprising.

Is it unusual for a firm to not have any CB's (that we know of) out by now? Wouldn't LP be missing out on chances with better candidates since alot of other firms have made offers in Seattle? It's my top choice but I have an offer expiring in a little over a week and I would hate to bug them when I haven't even been called back. I realize this is all just speculation...Ugh...this sucks.

There are several PNW firms that I know of that haven't done any CBs yet. But you're right, it does put them at a disadvantage because people will accept other offers before they even get a chance at them

Ditto to the above words. Several firms in the area have told me, both in the interview and when I speak with at their office, callbacks are still happening and the NW is slow.

It would be awesome to work in this city, but the market is small and hard to break into.

Are you an IP person? High or low T14? If you are T14, why not go for another top firm in Seattle? Rather, what other tops firms you going for?

White & Case, Dickstein Shapiro....offers from Seattle schools, but NOT from OCI. different fair.
