I've been told that for some candidates Robins has gone straight from screener to offer. Can anyone confirm this?

Can confirm this. Also just heard about someone getting a callback from Dorsey yesterday, so for those waiting for offers they may be waiting for new cb's.

What's the deal with Robins? Everyone there seemed really weird/awkward/strained/ego-maniacal. It was by far the strangest screener I've had-- almost every question seemed completely out of left field and many struck me as quite irrelevant to the hiring process. I would almost describe my visit as intense to the level of being a little scary. Completely different than any other CB or screener I've had in this entire process. What's their angle?

I have a close connection at the firm who told me they haven't even figured out who they wanted to call back from some of the T14s they did OCI with yet. I realize this may be complete BS, but if it's true then yeah, they're really staggered.

I felt the same way about Robins (and to a lesser extent Dorsey as well).

I eventually just settled on the conclusion that MN firms are just weird and accepted an offer in a different market, despite the fact that I love Minneapolis.

I do think those two are both oddballs. But I think there are still some great minny firms. I love the people at Faegre- really hoping I get that one

Pretty routine, 2 partners, an associate, then lunch with 2 associates. Really enjoyed my visit there.

How long ago did you do you CB? Around 2 weeks since mine and haven't heard anything.

About 2.5 weeks. From what they told me most people get put on the hold list until they complete interviews so if you didn't get a letter right away you're still in the running

As a UMN student, this is the word I have -

Many offers have been made by Winthrop with a large number of those still outstanding -- I think they would have to wait for a lot of people to reject those offers before they make another round of offers.
Briggs has made a number of offers, many of which have been accepted. Unless they are planning on having a large class, it would appear that not many spots are left to be filled.
Dorsey has an extended schedule that seems to be on a rolling basis in all regards -- they appear to be in the middle of their cycle (however loosely defined a middle can be)
Faegre has made a number of offers, although I have no idea who has taken them or rejected them.
Maslon has sent out a wave of rejection letters after callbacks and I have no idea who has gotten an offer there.
RKMC seems to be doing a non-typical hiring process and I have heard the rumors of screener-->offer as well. Not sure where they are at but there have been a few rejects after callbacks that I have heard and at least one offer after a callback that occurred last week.
Fredrikson told me last week that they are wrapping up their callbacks and will be letting people know before 9/17

All other firms, I have no valuable information on. Again, these are the happenings at UMN so other schools may have other timelines and experiences.
