I feel exactly the same way. Everyone I know who has been going on callbacks has an offer and I have yet to hear from anyone. Freaking the fuck out. I wish I never talked to anyone and then I would have no clue how I was doing in comparison.

Fml. Are these offers from the biggest firms like Gibson/Paul Hastings or from firms with ~5 person summer class sizes?

I only know like 2 people who have offers and I know people on LR with only 1 CB so you are definitely OK. I know of firms going to OCI (not CB) at schools this week so the time frame has just begun on offers.

Yea, believe it or not, it's still fairly early.

Thank you for that reality check. It is incredible how skewed one's perspective can get by comparing to other people. That being said, I still don't feel awesome about my situation because it sucks knowing that SOME people are hearing now. Also, the callback time frame was so quick, every day with no offer makes me feel that much closer to striking out. Having no validation that what I am doing is working is really hard and it is very difficult to read 8 people's impressions of you vs. 1-2.

FWIW, all the offers I know of are big firms.

Out of curiosity, which firms/offices do you know of that have already given out offers?
