This is rubbish.

So I found out about off-campus interviews.
Some firms are meeting students off campus. This equates to a pre-select.
Because the lottery system requires a firm interview X lottery students for every Y preselect students, some firms are conducting a small section of off-campus interviews in order to avoid having to talk to lottery kids.

This is ridiculously misinformed.

On another note, I can confirm that at least some Fulbright San Antonio callbacks were given yesterday by phone call.

I know for a fact that at least a minority of BB Austin offers will be made next week. Don't ask how I know.


After my BB-Austin interview, I was told that it could be as long as two weeks. As others have mentioned, however, I do know that at least some callbacks have been given out.

LL Houston is confirmed, but I've heard nothing from Austin.

Can anybody confirm or deny that information?

Anyone know whether the Quinn Emanuel dinner tonight is for everyone who interviewed, or just a subset?

Non-UT law student, T-14 school

I recently interviewed with the following firms:

LL
BB
VE
Jones Day
Bryan Cave

For those of you who have CBs with any of the above firms, how long after your screener did you hear?

Every office has been different. You need to specify which offices you interviewed with.
