Anyone heard anything (positive or negative) from any "midlaw" type places in Philly?

Did you hear back from the screener?

Not yet, but the interview was very recent, so I'm not worried yet.

Depends on what you consider midlaw.

Fast for Pepper just means they plan on making decisions in early September instead of late September. It's not like they're moving NYC firm fast.

No. Waiting with bated breath (not being sarcastic at all).

Ding from MLB, nothing from Pepper. Hopefully no news is good news in this case?

Just posted in the Penn OCI thread, but I'm also still waiting for MLB Philly. Got dinged from Pepper a few days after the screener.

On that note, any thoughts on Ballard vs. Dechert vs. Morgan? Not being from here, it's hard to figure out what the local reputation of each of these firms really is (Vault doesn't seem like it would be particularly helpful/applicable re Philly).

Heard rumors Dechert is trying to move most of their operations to NYC (I think Vault lists them as being headquartered in NYC now), and Ballard is downsizing their office space. In terms of prestige or whatever, I think they're pretty much equal though.

This is more or less accurate with regard to Dechert. Within the Philly market, though, it has a great reputation among peer firms.
