Delaware Firms Callback Info

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Aug 23, 2012 2:10 pm

Anyone know if Delaware firms (Morris Nichols, Richards Layton, Potter Anderson, Young Conaway) follow the typical screener to callback time schedule (roughly 1 to 3 days?) Philly t2 here, had screeners with all of them this week, the earliest one on Monday with Morris. Is it safe to say the morris was ding if I've heard radio silence? Thanks in advance!

Morris CB took a week or so, heard from the others within two or three days, but in general the turn around time in Delaware is a little slower than most places.

Interviewed with Morris Nichols Monday at Penn and haven't heard back yet myself. The one week turnaround bit does give me some hope though!

OP here, thanks for your responses. And people say TLers are all jerks! That makes me feel a little better...had RLF on Tuesday so 3 days would be today or tomorrow depends on when one starts counting...assuming a ding.

Anyone have ding experience with these firms? Looking at last year's forums it appears some of them never even bother to send a ding...which means some of us will be waiting...forever

I got dings from even mass mails at all the DE firms I applied to, but anyway, if you don't hear back in a few weeks, just follow up. There's no reason to just wait.

Morris Nichols took about a week to give me a call back hang in there folks.

Make sure you have a good understanding of what these firms actually do. I wasn't entirely sure myself and that resulted in ding. Best of luck folks.

Also - I had friends who hustled and were able to pick up SA at firms from mass mails pretty late in the game in October I think it was.

Anyone have any knowledge about CB to offer timelines for some of the Delaware firms?

Any idea how selective these firms are? I interviewed with all of them but so far have 1 rejection and silence from the rest. Do these firms want strictly law review and top 10 percent?

A lot of it depends on what school you attend. I'm top 20% at a local tier 2 they recruitment from and am on a secondary journal. I also worked in Delaware my 1L summer. I screened with the big 4 but didnt receive any call backs from them. A brief glance at their websites will reveal that from tier 2 they want law review etc. From a school like say GW you could be on the journal of ice cream sundaes and probably just above median and be fine....so again it all depends...and don't buy into the whole why delaware nonsense....a friend with a callback didn't even know where Delaware was on a map let alone its importance as a legal market.. its like any other firm.. prestige whores above all else...and yes I realize I should drop out or retake or whatever the usual top law schools mantra is

I thought Penn students with OK grades would do ok, but connection still matters. Maybe even if not at the screener lever, it does at the CB/offer level. Delaware has a special legal landscape and some people appreciate it some not. It isn't for everyone.
