No clue. Still waiting on Winston Strawn feedback (interview with them a few weeks ago, assuming rejection). Miller Shakman interview still up in the air.

Haven't heard a peep. I don't have all my grades yet, though (hopefully I will by tomorrow). At the holiday receptions over break it seemed like they weren't going to do a whole lot until they saw our grades.

I had a phone interview with a SF law firm partner last week. At the end of the interview she asked if I will be in town. I said I could come over during Spring break but she said that's too late, and she may have the HR to schedule a video conference with me in a office close to my school.

A couple days have passed by and HR still hasn't contacted me. Should I worry or just be patient? Should I offer to fly there on my own expenses?

I'd give it a week and then call to follow up. Out of curiosity, which firm?

I'm not really getting a sense of it from this thread, but have people been hearing back positively for non-diversity, non-IP NY positions? obviously I understand people not wanting to out themselves, but there hasn't seemed to be much movement.

I'm a new anonymous poster. I had phone interviews with DWT in Seattle and Portland and a phone interview with Stoel last week. They said they would let me know this week if I would get flown up to Portland/Seattle. I'm so nervous!!!!

I received about a quarter rejections and the rest silence. About 40 NY apps.

I had 30 NY apps, about 4 said they already filled positions and the rest have been radio silence aside from the occasional transcript request.

2L here.

Just want to recommend that all you 1Ls contact general counsels and in-house attorneys at Fortune-500 companies. Also, remember that each subsidiary probably has its own general counsel & attorneys. There is a book called "the directory of corporate counsel" that can help, plus your career services should have a database.

Working in house you'll get to meet many different attorneys at many different firms, which is great come 2L OCI. I choose an in-house over a firm offer 1L summer and have never regretted it.
