I agree.
And I heard three? four? years ago it was about 50% getting no CBs from AJF, and 15% getting 9+ CBs.
Then I wonder, where to the rest find their summer job...

This is terrible, I have top quarter grades and have 1 callback from 22 screeners.

Not really, it's been well over 24 hours for most interviews. I guess I can mass mail more firms...

Today should be tense, but after Friday is pretty much crunch time.

You know, I really think that there are two waves of callbacks.

There are the locks that get called ASAP.
There are the easy dings that get dinged ASAP.

And then the people in the middle take 24 hours to a week.

Haha I'm optimistic too, but no 2L from Cornell ever told me they got a CB a week after CBs from that firm started going out...in fact they seem to say it's 1-2 days, then it's a reject :(

I received the majority of my CBs within a few days, but I also got some several days and even weeks later so don't give up.

From what I've heard, it's email + snail mail.

Just snail mail is so 1990.
