Does anyone have an offer from Duane, Dechert, or Drinker? Would love to know how soon after the CB it came, even if you don't want to say which! Thanks!

Has anyone heard back from Philly firms post-CB, whether offer or not? How long did it take? Except for Dechert, which seems to be moving pretty quickly, I can't find much about other firms!

Same! I felt good about having 5 CBs, but nothing, sans one ding.

For me at least, there was one typical interview, one discussing my writing sample, and one "interactive" portion, where they give you a hypothetical scenario and ask you to talk through what you'd be thinking and how you'd want to respond. I think only 20 minutes each. Still haven't heard though :(

I have a Pepper Hamilton CB too. Trying to figure out what "practice areas of interest" I should list. Do they have a big corporate law team, or is it mostly litigation?

Offer from a Philly-area firm with a small summer class. It took just a little over three weeks to hear back.
