I was Bracewell preselect and haven't heard anything. Someone posted they heard of an H&K CB on here before.


Same anon as above, I also was a preselect with Bracewell, so it's good to know I'm not the only one that hasn't heard anything.

Has anyone heard from Bickel & Brewer? It's been 2 weeks since my screener and I'm thinking about sending the recruiter an e-mail since I haven't heard anything.

Question:

I got along really, really well with one of the legal recruiting managers at the hospitality area. I emailed a thank you afterwards. I don't want to give away my GPA range, but let's just make it broad enough to say I'm anywhere between top 1/3 and 1/2 of the class. Should I email again? Ask them to give me a chance (but obviously in a more formal way)?

I'm considering this but with a few partners I talked to in screeners, I guess I'll give it one more week...

Instead of asking students in the same boat as you, why don't you ask someone from the CPC? They're way more informed than any of us could be -- many of them worked at a lot of these firms as legal recruiters. Their advice is probably more valuable than any of ours.

any callbacks from WilmerHale or Frommer Lawrence? I haven't heard a word from either, but pretty much everyone else has gotten back.

For the guy asking about Fitzpatrick earlier - they told me two to three weeks but gave me a callback over the phone the next day.

Sounds like a ton of ppl waiting for dechert on here. Is that just because they haventformaly rejected ppl yet ? Anyone with friends who interviewed there too RK know if their friend for a cb? Think it was posted on here that the other interviewer have callbacks for them so it seems a bit odd after over a week if only one interviewer made calls .. Just wondering

Holland and Knight? Last year they gave a lot of callbacks/offers, but no one I know (including myself) who interviewed with them has heard anything.

Interviewed with them as well and haven't heard a peep. The recruiting manager did tell me that they're only taking 4 summers in NY this summer, but I'm not sure if that is an increase or decrease from last year. Maybe they're just slow.
