Can someone clarify things a little bit? They just have one round of interviews? So no callback, just straight to the offer/rejection stage?

Had a friend interview on campus with a screener, attend a reception for CB invitees, and conduct a CB via Skype. YMMV, though.

A lot cheaper than flying people out to HK. It's a recession out here...

Oh, and my friend's interview was during HK morning business hours.

Oh, you may be right. I was told that it was Skype when my friend was on the way to the office, but that does sound like a rinky dink operation. Pretty sure it was a video conference and "Skype" was used interchangeably for such, my bad.

I did an international law firm interview via skype (not HK though). It didn't seem to be a problem.

I had a pre-screened 15 mins phone interview with them...haven't heard anything from them yet. That means...no CB? are they gonna send out snail mail ding to me from HK? hope that won't take a full month to get here.

i think they already did all the callbacks. like most foreign offices of mega firms, they're not looking for a lot of people. you would probably have a better chance if you applied for Skadden NY

Sorry, I was wrong. It was actually done by Wednesday night. I don't know about all CBs. They may add people later on when they see fit. But the HK recruiter has flown back to HK from NYC.

I'm new here. Just thought I'd update y'all that I had my CB at the firm earlier this week and was told that I'd hear back on Friday. No word either way.

Let's keep this thread updated as it will help all of us reduce the anxiety of not knowing. If anyone gets an offer/rejection, please let everyone know.

I'm a 2L at NYU.

I'm not saying there are no other callbacks. I'm reporting what Mary Schultz told me on the night of my CB. She had specifically said that they (I assume Skadden HK since the CB is not for the NY office) would get back to "us" (there were three other interviewees there, so perhaps the four of us or perhaps all of the interviewees) on Friday. She didn't specify that it would Friday NY time or Friday HK time.

Hope this helps!
