Ditto. I was supposed to hear by last week at the latest. Oh well, relaxing and prepping for other interviews until then. :)

Anyone here had to wait 10 days (from your final SA day) for a decision? If so how did it turn out?

LOL, do you think anything you get in response to this question will be at all helpful?

Have you not read any of this thread? tons of people are complaining about waiting two weeks after summer. I'm personally finished waiting for my third week. It's fine.

This might be silly, but does anyone know if no-offers ever go out via snail mail? It seems kinda douchey, but I was just curious if anyone had heard anything about that. Thanks!

Finally, offer arrived yesterday! OP needs to re-do this poll, I think I am [one of] the last to receive a decision. Probably 0% are still waiting. Also, IMW, almost no one was no-offered.

I don't think you're close to the last still waiting...I'm still waiting. So are a lot of kids I go to school with.

Have lots of well known firms still not given out full-time offers yet?

I get it with the self selection but still...


ITE is back with a vengeance. Nobody is even talking about how many firms aren't guaranteeing 160k in their offer letters.


Quinn's offer lettter says they don't know what starting salary will be. just lol at what this profession has become.

Very surprised by that.

By the time I had completed my first ten SA weeks nearly everyone I knew had received an offer. Then we were asked to stay over another two weeks and at that point I knew of only two classmates who had not been offered. Then two weeks later everyone I knew had their offer. Even the OCI V group I interviewed with made me an offer before my SA firm chimed in. That’s why I assumed everyone everywhere had been offered. BTW: I have not heard of anyone (personally or through friends) that was no-offered.

Still waiting for my V100 firm as well. Been 3 weeks but I was told last week we would hear back about an offer this week. So presumably it could be any day now...

Well, hopefully the waiting ends soon. I don't know about you, but I've gone from antsy to kind of not caring/thinking that it will come. I've started interviewing, and I'm just focusing on those.

I have a friend who received his offer two weeks ago, but still nothing in writing. Is that unusual or perhaps SOP for some firms?

I think this falls under the “it’s always something” column.

There have always been rumors that this is how some firms cold offer. They then claim, hey, he never accepted our offer.

Got an oral offer by phone one week after SA ended. Written offer arrived 3 weeks later (for me as well as at least two others I was in contact with). 1000+ attorney firm with officers all over the globe, major/primary legal market.

Well you did eventually get it. Not a cold offer.

I do not think it has anything to do with a cold offer but rather just wanting to know if there are any “fine print” surprises.

We heard that one firm unexpectedly upped their salaries by $10K (one report said $15K). I read somewhere on TLS that one firm left the salary TBD. At this point all the firm’s delay accomplishes is fuel unnecessary questions.
