It's usually not a good idea to call but if you applied in August and haven't heard back yet...I don't think it can hurt. I'm in the same boat and I think the silence 99.9% means ding.

True. I'm just confused as to why they just don't respond with a ding email? Clearly they saw the email and ignored it...


Yeah, I know what you mean. I think it's because they find us unworthy of any such consideration. Seriously, 3Ls are begging trash to these law firms.

They're still conducting first-round interviews. They didn't come on to my campus, but I have a preliminary phone interview with them next Monday.


Any more movement from Cadwalader?


Any Charlotte Cadwalader folks out there? Thanks.

Does this mean I'm dinged?

DPW and Skadden both did this to me.


Haha us 3Ls get treated like such shit.


I had the best interview of my life with Latham but got dinged because I didn't have an SA.



I hope you don't mind me asking, but which office dinged you?

Thank you. I interviewed there also, but have not heard back. I wonder if I am on hold or if my ding got lost in the mail...

I had a preliminary phone interview with them like 2 weeks ago, assumed I was dinged because I hadn't heard anything (they'd said they'd tell me by the end of that week, and not hearing, I assumed a ding) and the interview did not go well (I thought), but got a phone call from them this afternoon and have a callback next week. Came out of the blue, I was not expecting it. Pretty excited.

Top 15% at a top 20 school, with ties to Charlotte. Doesn't matter now. The recruiting coordinator called me back 4 hours after setting up the CB, and said that their needs had changed in that time (the 4 hours) and they were no longer hiring a new associate in that group. Not the biggest gut-punch I've had, but damn close.

Sorry to hear it as well. One of their summers must have held out and then accepted an offer.

Ugh, no, not yet. I'm pretty sure I have the distinct honor of being the highest ranked person at my school without an offer, so that's fun. I have a couple things I have in the works, which, with my luck will not turn out, but nothing near the pay level/prestige of CWT. The firm I clerked at last summer doesn't typically offer but 1 or 2 clerks a year (out of 6), if that, and they don't make those offers until the spring.

The real victim here are all the recruiting coordinators who, according to many letters I have received, have had to make the "tough decision" to ding me, what with my "impressive credentials" and all.

Long story short, I want to drink.

Apply to BK and Tax court clerkships - you will definitely make headway with your stats. Several people from my 2L firm clerked for bankruptcy judges for a year or two before coming over.

Is anyone still waiting to hear back from HP? Did a CB awhile ago. Heard someone got an offer and someone got a rejection, but I haven't heard a thing. Should I assume rejection at this pt? Thanks.

I think it's very likely you are on the waitlist.

Thanks. Did you interview with them, or is this a guess? My assumption is that I am either on the WL, or that not every practice group has made decisions yet (HP has 3 practice groups that supposedly make decisions independently).

The lack of response from DPW and Skadden is comical at this point.

Talk to the SAs who haven't accepted their offers...
