FYI: I had a callback with Stroock, and it was the most difficult of my callbacks to schedule. I called something like four or five times over the course of two days and did not have a single real person pick up. That was followed by another three days of phone tag before I got the damn thing scheduled. Maybe their recruiting department is similarly overwhelmed at this stage of the process.

My experience was this. When I did get it scheduled, it ended up being a relatively late date as a result. Which sucks, because their callback --> offer ratio is already pretty low given their smaller class size.

Given that no one on TLS appears to have an offer yet, you might not be at as much of a disadvantage as you would elsewhere. It seems they might do things in waves, or wait longer to see more candidates.

Do you have info on their CB/offer ratio?

Just to be clear, can you say whether week of the 20th, or week of the 27th?

Silence here. But screener was less than a week ago, so I'm still holding out hope.

Also bump. Seems like quite a few of us are waiting. Last I heard they made offers last Tuesday evening. But if anybody has information to the contrary let us know.

FWIW, my post-CB ding last year came via the silent treatment. I suppose it's possible the letter was lost in the mail, but I have no way of knowing.

I hope you're joking with this. You'll get it or you won't. Analyzing the situation like this is just pointless.

CB today. It seems like they are doing a lot of CBs for the 22 SA spots.

I have a Strook offer but am most likely going somewhere eles. As soon as I get the offer letter and it's official I plan on withdrawing (my guess is Monday) so I hope that helps out someone.
