Skadden 3L Callbacks/Offers

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Aug 20, 2012 7:41 pm

This is a place to keep track of Skadden 3L hiring. They did resume drops at a lot of schools and I have heard of many screening interviews, but have there been any CBs or offers?

If you get one, please report here so your unlucky brethern can move on.

At some point one of us should email someone at Skadden and get a sense of their timeline.

I asked them at OCI what the timeline would be like. They said that I shouldn't expect anything for at least a week (from last Tuesday) because they are focusing on the 2Ls right now, since they are the ones under time pressure and getting the offers out first affects the class more so than for 3Ls.

If anyone hears anything back one way or another, let us know!

Has anyone thought of following up with your screener interviewer or recruiting after the screener? Terrible idea if you only say you're still interested in them without being pushy about a decision?

OP here. Thank you for the info from the horse's mouth.

I want to add that it would be appreciated if people would post dings as well.

It is hard waiting when we have no idea how many people they are interviewing and how many people they are taking....so different from 2L hiring. They could've interviewed 100 people for one or two spots.

Hey guys, I just got a 3L Skadden callback via email. Interviewer was TV, but it was legal recruiting that sent the email. Good luck to everyone.

How long did people have between screeners and offers for a callback? I was conducted a screener a while back and was wondering how long I should be expecting to wait before I hear one way or the other. Thanks

Was it practice group-specific? Sub-group specific?

I was interviewing for corporate, and they expect me to go into corporate. I think they are hiring for lit also, though. No specific sub-group AFAIK

To the person who asked about the time between screener and CB, for me it was about ten days. Five days between CB and offer.

ETA: If you still haven't heard, you may want to email recruiting and ask if it has been two weeks or more.

I wanted to follow-up with any 3L who has recently done a callback with Skadden NY. Has anyone heard back, and if yes, does the office ding by email or snail mail? Also, does anyone know when they usually meet to decide on offers?

Thanks!
