Did Gibson Dunn and Bracewell mail ding letters? My mailing address changed right before OGI.

Debating whether or not to send a continued interest letter at this juncture.

Anyone get a feel for how long the turnaround is from CB to Offer/Ding/Any Info in the non DC/NY markets? I never asked the interviewers what their process is, but now the wait is making me wonder whether I should have...

Non-UVAer here - some GD offices mail dings, some e-mail. I know DC mailed and LA e-mailed. The easiest way to deal with this is asking someone at your old place to let you know - I told QE my new address, but they still mailed the ding to my old one.

I got a snail mail from the DC office.

Unrelated, just got a CB from a resume collect firm. Things are still moving.

What are the odds that Rosh Ha Shana immediately following Labor Day Weekend is holding up NYC to the extent that ordinary panic should be less panicky?

Probably high, but you could always test this by going to the nearest beach and seeing how many people are extremely pale due to lack of sunlight and constantly checking their blackberries.

Norton Rose may have sent a letter to the wrong person, so follow up with them. I know two people personally who got rejection letters who never interviewed with them. Or applied.

I also haven't heard from 5-7, mostly smaller DC offices. I would guess for most of them that means no, but maybe not 100%.

CB from Proskauer NY within two days of the screening interview. I've heard from Career services that this is the time to start sending follow-up emails.

Dechert DC ding by mail and Clifford Chance DC ding by email early the week of the 16th. Probably still in the running for those two if you haven't heard yet.
