I'm getting there, yeah. I've just about struck out in NYC, and I've only pulled one CB from OCI. I have a few other interviews/CBs outside of OCI, but nothing that I'm feeling overly confident about. So... definitely getting worried.


exactly this. + some of my "safer" picks seemed to expect Id land "better" jobs, and I had to really sell being interested in them, which I am. I hope I dont get stuck in the not good enough/too good for us limbo.

patience is a virtue?

EXACT same position here...what's ur gpa?
I'm starting to think lots of people are in the same boat, but let's not freak out too much until the dings come in...CBs can come later than expected.

i'm not in this situation (that i know of), just wondering if firms either cb or ding everyone or if they leave some people with no answer either way while they wait to see if any of their cbs are declined.


I'm in this situation with a lot of firms (no cb, heard of others getting dings). Just keep hoping, I do think they might have given out too few initial CBs and might go for a second round when the earlier OCI schools start accepting offers.


Curious as to which firms have given out callbacks and dings but have not responded to everyone. I was under the impression that the firms that have given out dings had sent them to everyone not receiving a callback already.

(anon w/ 1 CB)

Good to know there are others in the same boat. Hopefully we get some good news this week.

FWIW, I haven't gotten responses from 14 NYC firms. I was assuming they were all/mostly dings, but hopefully you all are right about CBs going out in waves.

i hope that a lot of these fast callbacks from firms without dings going out means that they were merely fast tracking some VIP candidates, and will be taking more in the future.... hopefully.

11 here unless Shearman gave out CBs (haven't heard of those yet). If Shearman, then 12!
