Callback to Offer Ratio at Cravath/Simpson/Cleary

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Aug 18, 2013 1:49 am

Does anyone have any idea what the deal is with these and other top firms? Do they call back everyone and their grandmother? Or is there a pretty decent chance (50/50 or more) of getting an offer if you were invited to visit the office? (Presumably, grades don't matter that much at this stage, because they're screened for that.)

I looked around for other similar threads, but there wasn't much information posted... So I figured I'd try with a thread of my own. :)

This varies from school to school so you may want to see if your school keeps OCI data. But I do know that all 3 firms still reject a decent number of people they callback.

Cleary is closer to 50/50. I don't think it varies substantially from school to school.

It varies slightly, last year at my school it was 68% for Cleary.

Again, numbers will slightly vary from school to school. Simpson at my school was around ~95%; Cleary ~50%; Cravath ~60%.

Can you be more specific as to which school? Or at least provide sub-tier (MVP, DCNG, etc)?

Not OP, but CCN callback to offer ratios have been approximately the following for the last couple years: Simpson 50%, DPW 40-50%, Cravath 70%, S&C 90-95%

Also depends on the office. I can tell you non-NYC offices are generally more selective (as they hire far fewer summers).

Do we know how many students are called back at each place and what they expect their yield to be? I'm quickly getting the sense tons of my friends got CBs to DPW and Cravath - not sure what to make of it.

I'm not sure if my chances at those two are even worse than I thought this year, or if it's a yield issue.
