also had a call back last week... felt it went really well. they asked about offer though, sigh. this waiting is killing me, so much worse than waiting for 2L SA offers.


Any word from Cleary DC? Had an OCI interview last week but have heard nothing.



Not from Cleary but best of luck!

Has anyone gotten a reject yet from mass-mailing or resume drop...I've heard complete silence on both fronts.

Is it just me or is 3L hiring almost non-existent on the west coast. I thought things were supposed to pick up right about now.

This thread feels absolutely dead this year. Hopefully that is only because it is early.

Screener at EIW--met with partner in DC office who was also interviewing FLA offices. I explained my ties to Armonk-->Santa Monica-->Miami in that preferential order. Letter came around 1.5 weeks after interview.

It's been over 2 weeks since I had screeners with Kirkland and Latham and I've heard nothing. Should I email them about my continued interest or just keep waiting. Is this normal for 3L OCI?

I have no idea. I have taken a ton of advice - be more formal! be less formal! be really, really interested in the firm! don't be desperate! nag them! don't nag them! and I have gotten the same result no matter which I tried. Good luck either way,bro.

Same person, but for a different department... I was told I would hear back within a few days, but it could be the recruiting receptionist thought I was a 2L when telling me that.

Anyone see any new postings / availabilities? I did a bunch of 3L OCI screeners at my CCN but the vast majority were for corporate positions only, which isn't really my interest.

Separately, are there any reliable sources on CB --> offer ratio for 3L positions?
