Wouldn't that be equally true for Columbia students? And we have that data and it doesn't look like most places have an outrageously low callback to offer ratio.


I'm the one who posted the link earlier. I think the Columbia data fails to underscore why it is better to have callbacks at firms with very high CB to offer rates rather than the ones that are 30-50%: the very same people could be the ones ending up with the offers at every firm. Remember that this isn't random sampling -- the same interviewees likely excel in all their callbacks, and vice versa. That explains why having 2-3 CBs at firms with middling offer rates really does not afford security. Four or more CBs and one should start to feel more secure. I think the 8+ CB is excessively conservative, particularly if you are sitting on even one CB that traditionally hands out offers to 80-100% of CB interviewees.

I've only had one by email (Milbank). I think it depends on the firm.

And maybe even on the office. My Milbank LA CB was a phone call.

Have Skadden (DT) and Cleary (WG) callbacks gone out? I haven't heard of anybody with either, and yet the large NY firms seem to respond within 24 hours with a CB if one is forthcoming.

I also haven't heard from Cleary (LV) but had a great conversation. Maybe they're just slow to contact? (Trying to keep my spirits up here)

OP here. I also had excellent interviews with both and am surprised that I haven't gotten CBs -- I have from other V5 and many other V10 firms.

Yes to Ropes LS. Morning after.

Also have heard from 3/5 V5's not Wachtell and DPW. Wachtell to be expected, but really had a great DPW interview with JC. Pretty surprised there. Cleary also was a good one with LS, so surprised there as well.
