I was told by the firm that they don't start looking at candidates until November. That was months ago though so things may have changed.

Recruiting committee is meeting to make decisions this coming Wednesday, everyone should hear soon after this (either offer/rejection/"need more time" - which i assume means waiting list).

All contact will be by email.

What type of info are you looking for? I interviewed with them a few years ago. Pay was around 75-90 or so I believe.

In general NJ Small/Mid firms are tricky. Because of the size, you may not get the "sophisticated" work you desire. May not be able to pic you "practice group" as well. Although many of these firms don't have official practice groups anyways. Also firms this size are more prone to no offer you because of economics etc. And with the legal economy being as shitty as it has been, they have raised there standards over the past few years. They do seem to value prior work experience though. Good luck!

I'm the poster that asked this on Friday. Haven't heard anything. Maybe they got all of the dings out today and will be calling you and me tomorrow.

One can hope, right?

I mentioned that I had the NJ Law Journal 2013 Summer Hiring at Large NJ law firms numbers a few pages back and I found them so I wanted to keep my word and post it. This definitely isn't to induce fear or panic but I think it's helpful to know what class sizes looked like this past summer. Additionally, since some of these firms don't report to NALP, it's hard to locate some of this data. I also think it's helpful because NJ firms seem to try hard not to over subscribe their classes. As a result many of you may be on hold, seeing how many spots each firm had last year may put things in perspective. These numbers are self reported by the firms and published annually in the NJ Law Journal. Patton Boggs wasn't on the list, I am not sure if that means they canceled their class last year but I recall hearing rumors of such. K&L Gates in Newark didn't have a class last year but I know they plan to have one this year. Good luck to all of those still waiting!

Silence here too (person who reported that meeting would be on the 9th). Who knows though if they check references or something after meeting before making offers. They said contact "soon after" meeting. So, that could mean a few days I guess.

I know of two people who accepted offers at Connell Foley. Don't know if their class is full yet.
