I have a friend who got an offer (i.e. incoming 2L offer, not a permanent one) already at Gray Plant Mooty.

Can you share what school? Do you know when the callback was for the GPM offer?

He's from a non-Mid West T-30. Don't know when he interviewed. He just got an offer within the past few days.

Thanks for the info. If you don't mind me asking, which attorneys visited UMN?

My screening was on the 17th at a different school. Crickets. I'm not optimistic at this point.

median at (non-regional) t10 with substantial ties. so far, CBs at GPM (completed this week), Maslon, Faegre, and Winthrop. Rejected after in person screener at Robins, rejected without screener at Fredrikson and Lindquist, radio silence from the rest of the NALP crew. On Campus interview with Dorsey several weeks ago, haven't heard a peep from them.

I am the above t10 anon. I was offered a CB at the end of my (in person) screener, but I realize this might not be typical protocol because I went to the office for the interview when I was in town for another CB. He just asked if I wanted to come back for a full round as we were finishing up.

Dings from Leonard and Robins today via email. Got a ding from Maslon via snail-mail earlier this week. Biglaw options quickly dwindling away. Such is life.
