I may have missed them, but have there been any Latham Chi CBs?

Anyone else still on zero CBs? No callbacks, 5 dings (plus 7 more firms that have reported callbacks that I didn't receive). Is it too late? Should I trust career services about "rolling callbacks?"

They do exist but you need to be emailing every interviewer from firms you bid on but didn't get and asking for interviews.

Also, general massmailing and networking with undergrad/UChicago Law alumni and figuring out what is going wrong.

+1 around median it might be feast/famine. ~177.5, 6cbs, 2 silence from firms who have given out CBs, no dings.

Same boat. 0 CB's, 4 dings, silence from 8 firms who have gotten back to others.

Bidding only Chicago?

I ask because Chi firms are more likely to do rolling callbacks

No, mostly CA. Not expecting rolling CB's with my median grades and mediocre interviewing skills.

That's been my experience. 6cbs, 3 dings, and silence from some other firms giving out CBs

While some of this is just luck, a lot of it is interviewing skills. I would honestly ask some alumni you interviewed with for feedback, even if you only get a little it can be extremely helpful.

Also, a lot of it is where you bid. NY is a feast right now, while Chi seems very cold.

This is my personal experience as well. Having interviewed vast majority CHI and a few NY, I heard back from all the NY very quickly and have only heard back from one CHI. Is this the general feeling?

That sounds about right here as well. I've interviewed about half and half Chi/NY. Heard from most of NY. Heard from only two Chicago.

Be aware that some places won't do this because of liability issues. The places that have can been very helpful.
