No WUSTLers out there? I know there are a few firms with callbacks out already. I'll bump this once but if no one's I'll around I'll just let it die.

i think there are callbacks happening... but i also think that people are afraid that not enough callbacks have happened for people to be willing to stick their necks out for fear that they will identify themselves...

Yeah that's a fair point. I've only heard from a few people, in confidence, that they received callbacks. And it can be helpful for people worrying about those firms (crushing, but still helpful) to know that Smith Smith & Jones or whoever has started doing callbacks. I was just more surprised that no one posted their stats, interviews, etc. before now. It seemed like last year a good number of people put their info out before interviews so others could follow along. I also suspect that we don't have quite as large of a following on here as the class of 2013 because our class shifted mostly onto facebook. Shame because TLS is great for job discussion; which obviously can't happen on facebook unless you're a tactless doofus.

So which firms have you heard about callbacks from (and by that I mean, have you heard about callbacks for Arnold & Porter or Paul Weiss)?

At least some of the callbacks have been made for SNR Denton, Honigman, and O'Melveny & [deleted]. Anyone heard of others?

My concern is that there are way too few students even interviewing at OCI, so I want to be careful even mentioning anything. I've been seeing the same faces (30 or so?) throughout each day. A few new people pop in here and there for an interview or two, but largely the same set of folks are rotating to each firm.

FWIW, I know that at least one ding is out from O'Melveny and a callback from a firm not listed so far. I don't want to explain more because I think it may have been given face to face prior to the main set of callbacks going out.

Anyone else feel like they were just filling up a pre-select slot in every one of their interviews and had no legit shot, or it just me?

I felt like that in a few of them. Seems like it's easy to tell from the actions of the interviewers. I interviewed with Sutherland today and I was surprised that one of the two dudes didn't fall asleep. Maybe I just have low confidence, but I was confused with some of the preselects that I got (as in why is this firm interviewing me/am I just filling a spot). But stranger things have happened, so I'll wait to pass judgment.

I had quite a few preselects and almost all of my interviews I felt like I was annoying and/or wasting the interviewer's time. EIW is bumming me out.

The same 30 kids have been doing all the interviews? That's really annoying. I can't fault anyone for pursuing as many options as they can, but I guarantee you there are top 10% kids who are interviewing with certain firms just because they can. And that irks me.

More likely it says something about how much of a TTT our school is that only 30 out of 240 students can get a decent handful of interviews. I wonder how many people in the top 1/3 or so have slowly come to the crushing realization over the past few weeks that they're screwed, despite their best efforts.

I hate this game.

I haven't heard anything from Hunton Williams, but the interviewer mentioned she was staying in town an extra day to catch a Cards game, so don't give up hope yet.

It'd be helpful if OP (or anon above) could keep a tally of firms with confirmed callbacks.
