Can you post the call backs you received?

I got fulbright and bingham so far as well. I'm bummed about no sheppard mullin or manatt CB.

i'm just hoping sheppard mullin and goodwin procter haven't issued CB's yet...

Anyone know if San Diego / OC locations typically take longer re callback decisions than the LA offices?

It's opposite for me. I focus better when I compare cbs since i'm not always wondering about my past interviews anymore.

For USC folks, Stradling sent out an email saying that callbacks will go out in the next 8-12 days.

Callbacks typically come within 1-3 days, but may take as long as 1-3 weeks. The people with great numbers are going to get alot of the next-day callbacks. Then, when the firm gets a better idea of what its callback schedule looks like, it will start to fill the extra slots. Also, as a general rule the smaller firms take longer to get back to you.

Don't panic if the firm you like has given cb's to people. You aren't necessarily out of the running.

Haven't heard from any Sheppard Mullin office...guess chances are slim at least at the OC office if cbs were made already.

USC: Between Monday and Tuesday: 7 screeners, 2 dings, no CBs. Also, 5 of the 7 places have given CBs to others. This makes me want to panic.

Hopefully Wednesday/today were better.

But no one has mentioned Sheppard LA....hopefully they have to go to a committee or something to give out callbacks.

Do dings come via email or snail mail? Or does it depend on the firm?

I've gotten dings via email. Some probably do come by snail mail though.

This thread is only going to make me go insane... but its too late to worry about that.

Fulbright sent out dings today via email for UCLA. I have not heard back from any of my other 17 screeners.

I was told that Crowell also offered CBs but that's just second hand knowledge. Thanks for compiling list, it helps to see it all in one post!

Total radio silence on 12/15 of my interviews...I'd just like a response either way at this point!
