I suspect OP was talking about 2L OCI offers for next summer and the response was about 3L post-graduation offers.

Did they let you know when you should expect to hear back?

Most of the time the turnaround time they tell you has no relation to when they actually send out offers.

Anyone else see on nalp that for NYC they are planning on hiring 43 2Ls compared to 19 from last year? Think it's accurate?

This thread makes me nervous. I don't even have my callback for another week or two!

I wouldn't be surprised at all if that's accurate.

Hiring is doing just fine firmwide, but NYC is becoming more of a strategic focus for the firm given the practice groups and clients there.

Traditionally, does Dechert reject by mail or email?

How does this work when my CB is next week? Isn't there like a "super Saturday" next week as well with lots more callbacks?

For Post-CB dings, Dechert rejects by mail.

Dinged by Dechert Philly, CB 3 weeks ago so I guess the hiring committee has already met (at least in Philadelphia).
