Sure, but getting CB that late is more the exception that confirms the rule that CBs are offered soon after screeners. However, offers/dings following CBs can take a while. I got one on the spot, and waited almost a month for one firm.

Just to have a frame of reference, how many CBs in total did you get? How were your grades? (You don't have to get too specific, but I'm sure the info would help a lot of us)

Firms that have given out cbs but so far silence regarding dings:

Freshfields
White&Case
Milbank
Cahill Gordon

I should be expecting a mail ding soon? Or has anyone heard from email from these guys yet?

I have a 3.3 and I got 10 callbacks from AJF. 5 of them turned into offers. I think I'm a decent interviewer and after 3 weeks of not hearing anything from 2 firms, I followed up with them via email. Both of them ended up scheduling callbacks with me.
