Out of a class of 12 2Ls and 6 1Ls, it is rumored that there was one no-offer and two potential cold offers at Baker Botts Dallas.

Austin!

Q: Do I tell second-half firm about it to force the issue? I've still got several weeks left before I'm done here at second-half firm?


Was your offer from one of the Big 3? Nervous Texas summer checking in. Sounds like offers are starting to go out at Texas firms.

Any news from the other two Dallas offices of the Big Three?

For BB poster above: reasons for no/cold offers?

Patently false. There were at least two no-offers.


Patently wrong. Direct from a head of recruiting.

No idea really ... I'm guessing that it was fit or work product related, but some of the departments were really slow all summer. There just wasn't a lot of work to go around.

VE and BB Houston have made calls. Have heard of no-offers from both but I am not sure of numbers.

Correction: Apparently the "no offer" was a "hold" ... so that basically means that BB Dallas, while trying to show a 100% offer rate for NALP purposes, is in fact much closer to an 80% offer rate.

I heard from someone who was an SA that they way over-hired for the summer in NYC, so this does not surprise me. My source was worried about it when offers were coming it.


Very True.

Not that I condone this gossip mill/anxiety fest, but if you kids really want to do this right you would have someone collecting the rumors and consolidating them on the front page. Just sayin.

AFAIK, DPW had 100% offers. Everyone got them on their last day at the firm (for most this was August 3rd, but some left earlier).

Absolutely not. You have not finished there yet. Trying to force their hand now would show a lack of judgment.

I think 100% offer is right. There were rumblings of a cold offer that would have been well deserved going around at the end, but I don't think this happened.

Got an offer today--Small Secondary Southern Market. Will update at end of month but not disclosing market because my firm is the first to make offers. 100% of class though.

Can confirm no offers at BB, haven't heard anything personally about V&E in TX yet but know V&E NY was 100% offer rate.

Baker Botts (Dallas) offered 11/12 2L SAs and 6/6 1L SAs. Word on the street is that a number of the other 2L SAs who received offers, including myself, will accept offers elsewhere.

You are right. 100%. But there should have been two no-offers (one for sure). My second semester grades tanked, so I probably should not say anything other than sometimes 100% includes a lot of generosity and/or else looking the other way.

Word on the street for BB Houston is 7-8 no offers out of 53 (however, somewhere like 5 of those 53 were 1Ls so not offer eligible).
