Is there not a thread about this year's BLG job fair? For what it's worth, firms seem to have started calling back people.

I don't see any other ones. Do you know which firms have started calling? I've only heard of a few email dings.

Great. Guess that means I didn't get them.

Congrats, though! (and I do mean that with all sincerity)

Which interviewers - for Edwards, was it the male or female interviewer? For Mintz, morning or afternoon?

Congratulations on getting those two!

I've heard (outside of TLS) of dings from: Wilmer, Ropes, Goulston, and Goodwin.

I've heard (outside of TLS) of CBs with Mintz and Ropes (IIRC) and others but I don't remember which firms - sorry!

Ding from Hinckley Allen via snail mail. Seemed like a great fit and interview (though tough to tell with someone who jokes the entire interview with many people), too. :(

Pretty standard although on the longer end of the spectrum. You'll meet with a total of 5 people ranging in seniority and then be taken to lunch by two associates, assuming you have a morning interview. The first interview will be short, around 15 min, and the hiring committee interview will be 20 min rather than 30 min. The atmosphere was very relaxed and I did not get asked any oddball questions. It was mostly just chatting about my resume. One thing to note is that they will ask you which other firms you are considering.
