If you're talking about the NY office, I received an email ding early last week. If you haven't heard anything, I say it's better than receiving a ding.

Has anyone done a CB with Debevoise and gotten a ding? How long did they wait before getting back to you?

does anyone know the typical timelines for CBs from 3L OCI?

i screened with a couple of firms over a month ago at OCI and haven't heard anything either way since. does this mean i've been dinged or are they just not addressing 3L hiring yet? i just e-mailed a follow up with the interviewers i met for an update to see what was going on but no responses yet either.

seems very different for everyone. there is a poster here who knows a friend that got CBs at both Skadden and DPW. another poster recently got a CB from DPW. i am the only person i know doing 3L OCI but i've done one screener and have been ignored everywhere else.

there is not definite "timeline" it seems.

Do firms give out all of their callbacks at once or do they stagger them?

Could you please tell us which firms these are? Or at least whether they include Skadden, DPW or STB?

None of these places, both top three firms in their respective market (Texas and Chicago).

I read the entire thread, but couldn't quite find the answer to this question.

For someone with a 2L SA, is it possible to get a 3L position even before the 2L SA offers? Or will firms hiring 3Ls typically condition an offer on that person also receiving an offer from their 2L SA firm?

The 3L hiring schedule is so delayed that even with out it being explicitly conditioned you won't hear back from a 3L interview before hearing one way or the other about your 2L SA

I think its too early for most firms (not including the V10s that always try to grab a few kids from V50s and V100s).
