Completely firm-dependent. But I think a very rough estimate might be about 40-50% or so?

No, I was not. I actually found that extraordinarily unprofessional. I really enjoyed speaking with her.


Yeah, I don't really know what that was about either. They were my #1 firm too and I definitely would have preferred an interviewer from MN, but she seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say.

+1. K. Do's Firm OGI data chart should give you a rough idea of the size of each firm's '11 summer class and the # of callbacks they extended to UVA folk last year. S&C boasts a historically high cb:offer ratio, while DPW's MO is calling back tons of people and only giving out a few offers on the basis of close fit.

So basically: 1) smaller firm = generally lower ratio? 2) subtract from the size of the summer class the number of people likely to come from other T14s/local schools? 3) add in the possibility that some UVA people turned down offers? Columbia sends out a chart, right? Don't see why we don't.

Author of said "extraordinarily unprofessional" comment here. I was not talking about FBD. In fact, if you will go back and note, the post was written before FBD even came on grounds. I was referring to another interviewer who seemed to be talking up her own office to the detriment of the other offices despite interviewing people for about 3 different offices. I also thought all my apprehensions about that scenario in this terrible economy to be totally credited and take offense to being labeled extraordinarily unprofessional. My god, this is a fucking internet forum and we're all posting anonymously. Lighten up.

Yes, DC. Although, I think each office that you applied to makes a decision on its own.
