Nothing here, after 2 CBs a week ago. I'm starting to lose hope, especially since the firms in my other market have all responded within a day or two after the CB.

BU and BC are only halfway through their OCIs. Firms might be waiting until they've looked through everyone.

I posted this in the other Boston thread but friends who interviewed through BLG still haven't heard anything. Callbacks for BU are only being scheduled for two weeks from now after Labor Day.

It's sf/sv, which I have heard is slower than nyc, but who knows. Trying not to get discouraged.

Etiquette for asking about timeline for offer?

I did 3 cbs after the BLG, no responses yet. Two of them actually told me I wouldn't hear anything until after Labor Day, though, so I wouldn't start freaking out yet.

For the record, this whole sequence of events took place ~2 weeks ago, so maybe things have changed with their timetable.

Yea don't be too worried as long as you aren't at Harvard. I got my offer about 10 days after callback. FYI, timing supports the theory that they meet on Wednesday.

Person with offers from Ropes, GP and Bingham, are you from BU/BC? When did you have callbacks?
