For those of you with Day Pitney CBs: What was the CB process like (# of interviews, interviewers, etc.)? Thanks!

Edit: Just to be clear, I already interviewed with them, but I am unsure if it was a screener or CB.

My CB at Day consisted of an interview with two senior associates at the same time. Then a tour of the building with another associate which I think was also an "interview" of sorts. I was there for maybe an hour tops. A classmate of mine had a similar experience, so I don't think it was just me. I did meet with a partner during OCI.

Any word from Archer? If I remember correctly, they're making decisions en masse this week--possibly today.

This is the previous anon following up with the snail mail rejection I got from there yesterday--postmarked 10/5.

On another note, Cole Schotz is supposed to announce all offers/rejections/holds today.

Re: Cole Schotz - Back in Sept. I emailed them after mass mailing them and they told me they hope to be in a position to let me know by 10/15. So I'm assuming all offers/rejection go out by Monday.

Hi, Anyone else hear from Archer? I've seen some posts that people have gotten rejection letters. Anyone get an offer? Do I still have hope if I haven't heard either way?

In September I received a CB from Cole but because of timing I declined (had already accepted somewhere else). I liked the idea of working at Cole, in part due to a much lower COL. If anyone knows, I am curious on how much Cole pays, more specifically; do they pay more than $130k?

No, they start at $125k.

I think they start at $120k. And salary increases are not lockstep but based on merit.

Speaking of COL, I would think Wilmington is extremely affordable. Anyone here have any idea on what ABRAMS & BAYLISS might offer in compensation? I skimmed this thread and did not see their firm mentioned.

has anyone heard anything from Bressler - rejection, acceptance, a simple reply to an email asking how things are going?

Wilmington is modestly cheaper than Philly. I'm fairly sure A&B pays $125k.
