I know one person reported a Covington DC callback on Friday; anyone else hear back? I know they can take a bit longer because of the reference checking; just wanted to know if it seemed like their callback offers were complete. Interviewer = RAL.

I got a CB on Friday as well but had the other interviewer.

I got a CB from their Palo Alto office. I didn't even know I was interviewing for their Palo Alto office...

Also, please post if anyone hears about Gibson LA.

I've heard of a handful including myself, but since the calls went out on Friday and people started to leave town, there hasn't been as much of a grapevine. Last year they called back 11--I'd be surprised if the number this year varies that much.

Congrats. Went 3/10 in DC. It's a brutal market.

Not well. I for one have zero callbacks at this point, and OCS tells me that I am not the only one in this boat. And my grades weren't horrible, either; slightly below median. I am trying not to freak out, but it's tough.

I'm finding SF very difficult. In SV I got an offer for every callback I went on. In SF I have 1 offer from 4 CBs so far. Happy to have that, but it seems (from talking with friends) that summer classes this summer will be leaner than in previous years...

i'm still unclear on what people think is the median at this place. 4 Hs?

I've had almost the exact same experience. But I've also targeted LA as a safety net, and thank god - both of my offers thus far have been from SoCal firms. It's been brutal just getting a callback in SF.

Also, re: the snail mail Sheppard Mullin ding, which office was that? I haven't heard back from LA yet, but I'm guessing that's as good as a ding.

SF and DC are the two most difficult markets, by a long shot. That some people choose to target these two cities exclusively boggles the mind.

Also, median after 1L year is believed to be between 3-4 Hs. What is difficult to guess is the approximate distribution of grades. Do most of the people below median have 0 or 1 Hs? Does 10% of the class have 10+? Is it closer to a normal distribution, a bimodal distribution, etc.?
