Chadbourne & Park is also out. Shearman and Fitzpatrick are the only firms that haven't released lists.

Just picked up an interview from one of my alternates!

Also, Shearman is showing up under "with invitations" now so I'm guessing they will be going up soon.

Any movement on Shearman other than seeing it under "with invitations."

any idea how many applications each firm gets? and how many slots each firm has? how many alternates?

I only got 2 interviews, and 2 alternates out of 19.... just wondering how indicative this is for future chances at biglaw

Most of the firms in this program are very elite (and in NYC). It may mean you won't be able to get an elite job in NYC but it doesn't necessarily mean you won't be able to get biglaw in a less competitive market or one where you have solid ties.

Thanks for the update- now I can stop refreshing my computer every ten seconds. I'm curious what they were looking for, because I got interview invitations from every other firm with 1 alternate. Anyone have any input on that?

Maybe they figured you wouldn't accept? It's possible that they simply chose not to extend interviews to the top tier of applicants.

Yea, that occurred to me, but some other firms that I would've thought would be more likely candidates to do that didn't. Who knows, and I can't complain, I'm just curious. It's a very solid firm and I would've given them serious consideration, but oh well.

You can always try e-mailing them if you're going to be in NYC for a few days and let them know that you really are interested in working with them to see if they might want to set up an interview another day.

Morris Nichols is up. Also, everything I didn't get is now showing up as "not invited." The only 2 showing up as pending (of the things I bid on) are Fitzpatrick (NYC) and Owen Gleaton (Atl)

ETA: Owen Gleaton is now also showing "not invited"

Seems like a fair number of people have transferred out and opened up spots. I've gotten 5 of my 7 alternates so far (Seward and Kissel is actually one of the 2 alternates left).

From yesterday's screeners in NY, some callbacks have gone out for SullCrom, Skadden, Shearman & Sterling, Proskauer, Jones Day, and Chadbourne.

Anyone hear from anywhere else yet?
