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

Also got a Paul Hastings oc ding. Was genuinely shocked. Still no word from stradling and no word from the call backs I've been on. Pretty sure I won't get a job.

Same here. How long ago has it been since those callbacks?

My first cb was last Tuesday (but the firm said the committee wasn't meeting last week so who knows when I will hear) and then I had cbs last Thursday, Friday, Monday, and yesterday. First cb was in LA, other 4 in OC. Pretty much sick with worry :/ I am bad at waiting!!

:( Sorry to hear that. Would you mind posting which firms? I also had 5 CBs...I know I won't get offers from two of them because the call back went poorly, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed one of the other 3 works out.

All you need is one -- hopefully one of the other three gives you an offer!

They did this exact thing last year as well.

was it fullbright that I kept hearing about terrible interview experiences? I think it was fullbright. I didn't interview with them, though.

Pretty sure it was one of the interviewers ( they had two rooms, one interviewer each).

USC: Paul Hastings ding (email) & Stradling ding (snail mail)

Damn. Those were the only two firms on my "have not heard from" list that I thought would give me call backs.

I just got it in the mail today...I skimmed it enough to see, "I'm sure you will have other offers" and then promptly trashed it. It was probably sent in the last day or so; I live very close to their office so snail mail travels fast.

Reed Smith email ding (post screener).

Pretty sure I have heard from all of my screener firms now (the few I haven't heard from I know have extended CBs already). Not too impressed with my screener -> CB ratio. 3/15, 4/16 (this was one I scored just by showing them how interested I was and doing an on the spot mini interview).

LR, top 30% ish...
God, I need a job.

I'm wondering if a resume drop (not a mini interview) ever led to a CB for anyone from UCLA/USC this cycle? I didn't have luck with any resume drops.
