Hey you guys... rising 3L here. I just wanted to tell all of you to keep your chin up. Things will work out- just don't give up and be persistent. I was top 20%, I had 10 CBS.. and ZERO offers. I met with OCS daily to fix whatever was wrong with me... not sure what the problem ever was... but I kept at it- I sent hundreds of additional applications, wrote nearly 100 cover letters... and FINALLY in late November I got an offer at a firm in NY (which has now turned into a full-time offer upon graduation). Stay strong, focused, and don't give up. Good things will happen to all of you!

Just got rejected by QE. They thanked me for interviewing with them. Funny, I didn't interview with them. Also rejection letter from Baker Hostetler. And rejected by firm where I did my first CB. FML. Happy Monday.

My callback was on Friday the 24th. They said their recruitment committee meets every Tuesday and Thursday, and I think they work quicker than most. I actually haven't even heard from a single firm in a secondary market that I applied to. Might make things interesting.

What were the initials of the person who interviewed you?


JC


Hate to say, but I think it's a ding. I got a callback a little over a week ago following a screener with JC.

You are probably right. Just curious then why they haven't gone ahead and sent me rejection email/letter? I have three other NYC firms that have already done callbacks and offers and rejections and I haven't heard squat from them either. If I was rejected, then why haven't they rejected me yet? Am I just going to be ignored?
