So I'm guessing at this point, we can't really expect any more CBs right?

Got a WilmerHale this morning (stuck in Columbia's anti-spam of course). Don't lose hope. Firms and partners come out at different speeds.

Does your filter catch a lot of emails? I've checked my folder and there's never anything, I just want to make sure I'm looking in the right place.

Better to mass mail on weekdays or is it OK to mass mail over the weekend as well?

Really surprised at some of the rejections. The cbs have come from interviews I thought went great. Most of the dings the I expected, but some came from firms that aren't grade conscious with interviewers I thought I connected with well. Makes me wonder what it was so I can make sure not to do it during cbs.

Same here. It probably depends on a lot of random variables like your interviewer's mood, whether he had lunch yet, etc. What's good about callbacks is that you're meeting with five or so interviewers, not one, so one unpredictably bad interview won't kill you if you're a genuinely cool person

Good to spin it positively, but in the game of interviews, one bad word will negate all positives. Good luck.

Glad to see you are taking such an active role in your child's future, but we really don't need someone from your generation telling us about the realities of legal hiring today. Stay classy.

Doubt anyone is going to post specific firm offers this early for fear of being outed, but yes, multiple V10 firms with Wednesday and Thursday CLS callbacks have extended offers in the past 24 hours

Cmon dude, who is it?

And who cares? Do you think a firm is going to revoke an offer (which they can't do) because the person told other people that they got an offer?

Yeah seriously, from where have people received offers? This is supposed to be a place to share information, not give partial information which makes others nervous.
