When are OCI Callbacks

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jul 30, 2013 3:04 pm

Is there a standard time frame for callback interviews? My OCI interviews run roughly from August 10-20, and I am trying to get an idea of around when I should expect to go in for a callback interview (knock on wood...). Here is why I ask- I set up an in-house interview with a Biglaw firm in Chicago, and the interview is in a few days. This is a full round of interviews, and I was informed that this is the typical "callback" interview phase. IF this firm makes me an offer, then I am wondering if they'll be wanting a response before I have a chance to do callback interviews from the firms I meet with at OCI.

All information is welcome and appreciated! Thanks!

If the big firm is a member of NALP (nearly all are), offers should be open for 28 days. Though firms don't always follow NALP guidelines.

But when are the callback interviews scheduled for? I've heard a lot of them are in October- any truth to that? Because if this first firm were to make me an offer a week after my interview and gave me 28 days to respond, then I would have to let them know before I have callbacks at other firms (assuming those other callbacks are in October).

Thanks!

My first callback interview occurred one day after OCI ended, and my last one occurred twenty days after OCI ended. Hope that helps.
