Willkie/milbank callback---->offer

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Aug 27, 2012 4:18 pm

Hey all, was just wondering if anyone knew the turnaround time between a callback and getting an offer for Willkie and Milbank (both NY).

No clue about offer timing, but if you get an offer from WFG, especially if you're interested in litigation, go WFG. I used to work there and the attorneys are amazing, they also bill very reasonable hours. I say this as someone who got burned for personal reasons so I have my own bitterness against WFG, but I would never hesitate to recommend someone else from working there.

Willkie makes some offers on the spot, but can take up to around 3 weeks. I know people on both ends of the spectrum.

Milbank seems to make decisions quickly. Got an offer the day after my callback.

I received my Willkie offer at the end of my interview, but I know someone else who received an offer a week after their interview.

Who gave you the offer, the last person you met with or the hiring partner? Also, when was your cb?

interviewed with Willkie on August 23rd. Haven't heard anything. Safe to assume DING?

Last year I received offers from both firms within a week of CB. Milbank I think was 3ish days (the Friday after my CB) and Willkie took almost the full week

I received an offer from Willkie the same day as the callback, though not at the end of my interview.
