I got an offer a few days after the callback. They may be waiting to see if people accept their pending offers before sending out another wave.

Anyone hear from K&L Gates Boston following a CB? I heard of one person getting an offer so far but I think they said it was after calling about having another offer already.

Thanks. My CB was 9/5 and they said they should start sending out offers this (9/16) week (though obviously they sent some already, I know of one from the same week as my CB). Fingers crossed! It's basically my last hope (but obviously would be AMAZING).

FWIW, I know a handful of folks at BC with open offers from Ropes, WH, GP, Choate etc who will have to choose at some point in the next 10 days or so. Hopefully this opens up some offers for those waiting, especially if the firm likes to take on a certain rough number of BC people. I'd imagine the same is true for BU, and probably will start occuring even sooner for Harvard and other schools where people might have recieved offers earlier in the process.

I think NALP releases the data next summer or something. You won't know officially for a while.

Congrats! BU or BC? Mind if I ask what your turnaround was after CB?

Just struck out. Top 25%/Secondary Journal/WE from BU with 20 screeners and 3 CBs. Glad I get to be that guy.

Games not over. Did you mass mail? Its pretty late, but not impossible to pull something out. Did you hit up the Boston mid-size firms? They tend to hire after OCI. Also, I know many people who struck out 2L who ended up with Boston big firms or big fed post 3L - you just need to be aggressive - network, apply.

I mass mailed about 150 firms, only 1 CB from mass mail but I think it was more from a networking connection, and I think it was basically a formality. I mailed every NALP firm in Boston, don't think I saw a lot of mid-size firms

hey man, you are not alone FYI. It looks like I'm about to strike out too (5 CBs). I know it seems like everyone is getting offers but there are definitely a lot of people like us and plenty who didn't get a lot of screeners or 0 CBs.
