For those that finished the screening interviews. Did they gave you an estimate of when they would give out callbacks? Because the app ends in a week so I am guessing more than a week?

Yeah I would assume so. My interviewer said "soon", whatever that means.

Ditto for DC office. Offered phone interview right at the end of the In person screener. It's apparently with a group of attorneys.

Anyone heard anything about it from the Dallas or Houston offices? They still accept apps for another few days, but I didn't find out about this somehow until yesterday. Trying to decide whether it's worth still sending something in.

^Go for it. Couldn't hurt to throw an app at them.

Interesting, my interviewer strongly suggested that I made it past the first screener, but wasn't so explicit in offering the phone interview per se. Not totally sure what to make of that. Guess I'll just wait and see.

Aside from bonuses, does Akin still pay market for non-NY offices?

Was offered a phone interview without first going through the screener, might be because my app went through yesterday. CCN around top 15 percent

Anyone know if they let Pro Bono Scholars split 2L summer with another firm? Obviously their incentive to do so would be low...
