Nice! Good to hear our colleagues doing well. Where are all these offers coming from? My CB's all started last week and all I have had is silence so far....

The demeanor amongst 2L's is getting more frantic. Is anyone else at school noticing a change in the overall cheeriness of people? Well, at least the ones who participated in OCI.

I only hang out with happy people

That bring said, a friend who is not top 10% got an offer from a V5


Is he LR?

Nope. No moot court or DRS either.

I started a thread for offers so we can keep track. This thread is getting cluttered with too much info.

Had Haynes n Boone call back last week, silence ever since..

Any news from Duane Morris? Haven't heard anything since the screener, which is probably a bad sign at this point.

At this point it is time to start thinking about direct mailings, smaller firms, other options available to you for the upcoming summer.

It seems that this was a rough year for Fordham across the board... time to move on from EIW and start looking at other options.


Many firms are moving to a staff attorney model in litigation. These jobs won't be available in OCI but will be after graduation. Granted, they start at significantly less than associate pay (think 70k-80k range) but it is something.

What is the point of these jobs (at least at the entry/ first career level) if there are no opportunities for advancement?

Don't lose hope yet. Just got a CB from Haynes and Boone. It's late in the game, but they're still doing CB's. Maybe other firms will be doing the same in the next week or so.

Did they give you an approximate timeline as to when they would get back to you?

Some more callbacks may open up as people start to cancel interviews. I know someone who canceled six interviews after accepting an offer - so spots may still be opening up ... they will just be less frequent :(

Well that's a good point. I guess the bigger picture is to have an awareness that there simply are not the same number of first year positions as there were last year or the year before.
