Still at 0 CB.


Me too. And my grades were not terrible at all. Been told that I'm a pretty decent interviewer too. Sucks.

Also got the ding email this evening. I knew it was a longshot anyway with my grades, and I was surprised to get a CB at all. Still sucks to know that I was pretty close but just fell a bit short.

If I interviewed with PW last week and haven't gotten a call or a ding email, is it dumb to still be hopeful? Anyone know if they had some sort of wait list in the past?

Did you get a list of interviewers before your PW interview?

Yeah, I think that's the only thing they recruit at the law school for.

Same, may have been a different interviewer though (I honestly forget/don't care to check).

May have picked up a 3rd CB today from mass mailing NYC (with what I can only describe as a "midlaw" firm that pays $145k). At this point I have no idea if its a screener or CB, but am thinking its just a screener. Still, I'll take it.
