Started. I'm a rising 2L so I don't know how exactly this process works. But I'm guessing if you don't hear within 24 hours of when Cbs go out you are not getting a CB?

For real? Well, that's pretty scary. And I certainly hope not...

The above is not necessarily true. CBs from the same firm do not necessarily all go out at once. Not even within the same 24 hour period. It varies fairly widely from firm to firm. Good luck to everybody. I hope it is a good year for Cornell.

I got a CB last year with a firm that had called my friend about 24 hrs earlier. Different interviewers, and anecdotal, but it definitely happens.

Doesn't this just prove my point? 26 hours 24 hours, whatever the line is, the window for a CB seems to be small once the CB starts coming out.

It seems like all the firms have started offering CBs?

edit) taking into account that many won't post here.

All is definitely an overstatement. I haven't heard anything about a bunch of firms.

Let's try to avoid idle speculation, ok?

Generally true

All my CBs came within 24 hours
