Cravath Decision

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Aug 19, 2013 6:34 pm

CB at Cravath at the end of last week. Haven't heard anything yet, but I know they usually have a quick turn-around. Anyone know what to expect?

Also had a CB last Thursday. I was told the hiring partner wasn't in the office so I wouldn't hear right away. However, this does seem like longer than usual. FWIW, I know of a same day offer from the Saturday CBs, but that may have been because the hiring partner was in the office. I interviewed for corporate.

Also was told that about the hiring partner. Post here if you end up hearing.

I will update when I hear anything. I imagine we will hear soon. Judging by threads from previous years, they are pretty fast at mailing rejections as well.

They're making same day offers on CBs this week, so I imagine you'll hear soon about interviews from last week.

Do we know if anyone got offers in past years days later or if you didn't get one day of that means you'll get a ding? Is there hope for those of us who didn't get same-day offers because the "hiring partner was out."

There were people that got offers that didn't hear right away last year. The next day seemed the most common, and I think three or four business days out was the longest duration I saw in old threads.

Right I'm just curious if that was going on even while they were giving same-day offers to others. Guess I'll just have to wait and see.

Cravath doesn't tell you who you're meeting with the day before, right?

No they do not. They don't even know themselves at the beginning of the day.

Yeah some calls definitely went out that Saturday evening. Interviewed with corporate only if that helps, and the corp hiring partner was in.

Does cravath actually send out real rejection letters by mail (I.e should I stop obsessively checking my e-mail)?
