Mind if I ask if you are a URM?


I'm white as fuck but have a compelling backstory. I will cop to being a badass interviewer.

Pretty sure you're a badass person all-around, my friend :P

Only about half of these were interviews that I thought went spectacularly well; I'm legit surprised by at least two of them, so my completely useless advice would be to not stress out and consider yourself out of the running for a firm just because you weren't able to converse with the interviewer as if you're the oldest and dearest of friends.

Kaye Scholer
Bingham
Winston
Kelley Drye
Katten
Bryan Cave
Pryor Cashman
Greenberg

Polite dings from:

Patterson Bellknap (obvs)
Kasowitz

Not so polite ding from O'Melveny, which put someone else's name on my rejection email.
Who was your interviewer for Winston, out of curiosity? Oh, and that's a good haul man.

I have a CB with DPW today, but they haven't sent a confirmation email, an email with the attorneys I'm interviewing with, or any information at all since I was sent the form. Do I just show up to their offices?

They didn't even send a floor or a contact person. Do you think spam collected something?

Well, you really should have called the DPW recruitment office about this yesterday, but I guess instead you should do so this morning immediately. Even if you just scheduled your callback yesterday the information you mentioned should have been sent to you by now.

Called dpw. Apparently they don't send confirmation emails unless person confirming remembers. Also, recruiting was super condescending and rude. They must be stressed by this insane process--esp when they callback a massive chunk of people.

Not necessarily. If you bid all big new york firms, then probably yes. If you bid mostly smaller or mid-size firms in other parts of the country, then perhaps not.
