Does everyone have a second drop-down menu stating "Philadelphia Area Diversity Job Fair II"? Also does anyone have any information under it?

Bump. The menu states resume review until tommorow?

Maybe they had a lot of candidates and are trying to create a new flight of interview slots based on original bids.

How were everyone's experiences? Any movement post-fair? Had two firms say that it would be a while before making callback decisions...

Mind sharing which firms said that? Duane Morris told me that it would be a "week or two" before callbacks.

Cozen said that I should be hearing back on callbacks in a week or so.

I still feel like these interviews were more for the firm to say that they "care about diversity" than it is about actually recruiting talent since it was a full lottery system and many of the interviewees were below the GPA cutoffs for most of these firms.

I completely agree with the poster above. I didn't get a great vibe from any of my interviewers.

I agree with the above. I felt like they were doing face time and little else. It was a little depressing.

Blank Rome rejection yesterday (via email).

Anyone hear anything from Cozen or Duane Morris (either way: callback or rejection)? I'm out of town this week so it's possible that I have rejections waiting for me in my mailbox when I return.

When did you get the Duane Morris callback? Damn, I really thought that interview went well but haven't heard back yet.
