Anyone got rejection/offer yet? Had call back nearly 3 weeks ago and nothing from them yet. Thanks ahead of time.

Man... what's taking them so long? Is it normal to take 3+ weeks for Chicago offices or something?

It varies I think. I've heard healthcare is about 2, trial is about 4, but don't hold me to these numbers.

Reached out to a partner in recruiting this past week, and they told me no decisions have been made yet.

Had callback 2-3 weeks ago and they are definitely having a summer class. MWE does hiring by practice group though. According to the partner I interviewed with, his group was only doing 1 SA.

They put an add on my school's symplicity for an SA in the trial group a few days ago. It sounds like they just shat a brick with the hiring process this year.

mid-west T-25. They gave call-backs to at least 6 people at our school for Chicago and no one has an offer (haven't confirmed if everyone was officially dinged, like I was). From the sound of it, no one anywhere seems to have a confirmed offer, which seems odd as the day I interviewed (5 other students were in the lobby . . .)

Got an email from their Legal Recruiting Coordinator a few days ago asking if I was available to interview with their Employee Benefits Practice Group next week. Confirmed my availability as soon as I read the email but have yet to hear anything back. Anyone else in the same boat?
