any idea when the first callbacks will start rolling in from OCI firms today. i.e. Ropes? Goodwin? Foley Hoag? Choate?

They tend to be fast, a day or two after screeners, if it's like last year.

So - does hearing nothing - no dings, no CB's, nothing - after OCI (been 1.5 weeks since CA and almost 1 week since NY) a bad sign?

I'm in the same boat, I haven't heard anything from a number of NY firms I interviewed with. Imo, there's a slim-to-none chance that it isn't a ding. At best, we are on "hold" until firms get a good sense of how many people are actually accepting offers.

Ditto. It is really hard to prep for these interviews knowing I have almost a zero percent chance of anything coming from them. !@#$ Crim exam ruined my life.

As someone who transferred from BU/BC and did OCI at my new school during the last few weeks, hearing nothing is not, in and of itself, bad. It may not be good but if they clearly didn't like you they would ding you quickly.

I promise you, until you've got the ding, everything's on the table. Good luck you guys, kick ass!

Yeah, I also have to add... I did an additional interview a week and a half ago in California. At the end of the interview, they plainly told me that a decision would take 1-2 weeks. I still haven't heard anything. Firms may just be taking their time if they're running around doing other schools' OCIs.... don't know.

From the interviews, Ropes, Choate, and Foley Hoag all seemed to suggest either today or tomorrow.
