OMM Downtown ding via email.

Does USC give historical percentages on callback/offer ratios for LA firms? UCLA doesn't have that info and while it doesn't guarantee a thing, it would be nice to have some idea what the competition is like for the firms I really want...

I haven't seen any data like that, but I'd like that info, too.

Got post dings from Latham (Costa Mesa) and Keesal.

Sitting at 0/18 with only 3 outright rejections. Not feeling so great about all this.

If half of the firms you interviewed with have not given out any call backs yet, you don't need to worry yet.

Any USC people hear from Sheppard Mullin Downtown LA yet?

Would be weird if they only issued UCLA callbacks so far but not USC.

same. it's possible they have issued CBs already at usc and we just don't know about it. if not, i find it odd that some ucla students already have received cbs.

Very good work, congrats. I am, on the other hand, on my way to performing very poorly: 16 Screeners, 1 Callback, 3 Actual Dings, 8 Suspected Dings (based on others getting callbacks). This is shaping up to be a very poor showing. I'm probably somewhere around the 20th percentile, so I guess I have pretty awful interviewing skills compared to the rest of our class.

Don't you mean 80th percentile? Being in the 20th percentile means your gpa is only higher than 20% of all others

I think they meant to say top 20%.

Gibson said they would be 1-2 weeks since they were still sorting out giving offers to current summers. That being said, they did invite some people to a dinner the night of the screener at USC.
