same. not surprised at all. skadden interviewer had a checklist with what appeared to be three categories for grades. i was middle category + no ties + no law review = no callback.

got an offer from another firm today though, so skadden can suck it.

The stress of waiting to hear from firms after callbacks is killing me, and it's only been less than a week. Particularly when I know one of my USC friends just got an offer.

Pleasssseeee I don't wanna strike out with a 3.46. Only got 4 callbacks.

Can't disclose, but one of the firms with a bigger summer class size. All the firms I'm interviewing with have smaller class sizes, so maybe they take longer.

Do you know when their callback was? Trying to gauge the turnaround from cb to offer.

I am in this exact same situation. I am also basically interviewing with SA sizes between 1-6.

Nobody's mentioned the firms I had screeners with. I had a shitload of screeners too. It's pretty unnerving how long some firms are taking to get back to people about CBs.

well at least for stradling, the e-mail they sent said it'd take 8-12 days and it's only been 11. haha.

i'm still waiting on a ton of firms as well; not looking good. haven't had much action in the last 5 days or so, today included.

Yea. Not a lot of movement here either. I'm starting to freak out a bit. I don't know whether or not this is justified though.

+1. Still waiting to hear back from 7/15 screeners (of the other 8 that I've heard from, I've had 5 CBs and 3 dings). It's been almost a week since my first CB and I'm going crazy waiting for final news about whether or not I get an offer. I'm pretty scared that I'm not going to get a single offer!

Last year 86 fucking people at USC got biglaw SAs. Please god let me be one of the 86 this year. GPA is definitely > top 40%

If anyone has contacted rising 3Ls, let us know when they received their offers!
