I received a callback with them and was wondering if anyone had some info on them or their recruiting process?

I don't have any info on their process, but i also had a callback with them. Want to keep each other updated on when/if we hear something from them?

Heard that the Indy summers had an offer rate of only 4/7.

Their hiring practices are pretty standard. Had a 3-person screener with them, which was awkward, but other than that the process was normal. CB was like 3-4 interviews with 2 attorneys in each one, followed by a CB lunch. Thought it was a very standard callback. Their recruiter called me to ask "if I was still interested" and as I understand it, she calls people back like an hour after that call and gives the offer.

That's pretty par for them. They also have a reputation in the city as an uptight firm that overworks their associates, FWIW.

I'm assuming you interviewed with them last year or are you talking about this year? How long did it take from your callback until you got the call?

My friend said that an associate made no effort to hide how overworked she was during her CB lunch.

Not surprised. Sure, it is probably a step down in hours from NYC or even Chicago, but the hours are tough compared to most secondary market biglaw firms, and they have a reputation for being stuffy and uptight. I don't work there though, so this is all second-hand info and reputation stuff.

And to the above anon, I received a call a few weeks after my CB... maybe a week or two? This was last year. Again, the timeline and the process was very consistent with other secondary Midwestern markets including Indy.

Nothing from me. All quiet here. Did you happen to ask about this offer ratio, or did they make any statement to you to the effect that they generally try to make 100% offers? That's starting to worry me a little bit.

I am not sure about their callback:offer ratio. I imagine it must vary from school to school? It costs more to fly out a student from far away than to compensate someone in the same city so they are more selective in the initial stage due to cost?

As far as summer offer rates, I think it is generally about 2/3. I asked about it briefly in my callback and I was told that they hire a summer associate for each available spot, but that generally only 2/3 get offers. They said this largely wasn't due to work product though, but, rather due to personality conflicts.
