Seems like firms are taking much longer to give out callbacks.

Edit: At least thats what I'm hoping.

OCI this year seriously sucks. Much worse than last years so far it seems.

Cadwalader last year was exactly 1 week after the interview to answer the person that keeps asking.

This is not uncommon at all. I know it's stressful and tough, but try to stay patient and keep going strong in your remaining interviews. Last year I got a couple callbacks two weeks after EIW and 1 3 weeks after.

Guys, what is the protocol for emailing to ask if we should be hearing soon? I think it might be overkill, but I'd love to hear some thoughts...

Don't think it's a good idea; I'm hearing enough conflicting ideas on thank you notes after interviews and hospitality area meetings. Emailing to ask a question like that is probably worse.

You're bitching about not getting a call back from 3 screeners?

Please tell me you're trolling.

I don't understand, are they just grabbing all the top 10% kids and we come later, or are they pulling a 2009 over again?

I've not heard of people outside top 15% with more than 1 cb so far
