Congrats!

I feel like there has to be more movement going on than what we have listed in the thread. Hm.

I'm not so sure. Two firms I spoke with said they wouldn't make CB decisions until next week, and I'm inclined to believe them; the other firms that volunteered CB schedules have stuck to them so far.

Your theory is more comforting. I'll go along with that instead. :)

It depends on the firm. By way of comparison, Cooley claimed to make calls w/ in 2 days and they seem to have stuck to it, yet Covington says in all their literature that they take weeks to make CBs (they say it's so they can go through your writing sample).

Are you guys getting callbacks at least top 25% or whatever the firm guidelines said? Anyone below the requirements/preferences?

I'm well within one, and for the other it just says excellent academics - whatever that means.

I'm clearly not doing these screening interviews correctly, bc it feels like they're asking me very few questions, and spending almost the whole time just talking about their firms

That's not necessarily bad. Lawyers like to talk.

BS in Comp Sci.

Also had an interview with Weaver Austin Villeneuve & Sampson today too. It was my first interview of the day. Told the guy that I am mostly interested in IP litigation, not so much prosecution. He tells me they only do prosecution and the interview ended. 6 mins tops.

That sucks. But if you really didn't want to do it then I guess it's better that you won't end up there.

I wish I had a science degree. English majors suck.

Thanks for this.

I should have shared this above, but Jones Day told me "early next week."

Also, it might not mean much, but the Latham interviewers told the UCLA/USC kids that it would be "about a week."

White & Case. They only wanted tech people. I am a humanities major and they were skeptical about my ability to fit into the office.

Same here. One more interview to go and it's the only firm interview I'm certain wasn't a lottery.

Once more unto the breach!!!
