Boies Schiller question after callback

Postby suoicerp » Mon Sep 02, 2013 12:20 am

Hi--I had a callback at Boies Schiller and am curious about how long it takes them to give offers after callback interviews. I'm also curious about the undergrad and 1L GPAs of those who did get offers. Thanks!

Although it's not guaranteed, I'd wager that someone who gets a callback from Boies is sitting on offers from other places already. I get the importance of mass mailing, but don't confuse this kind of question for sitting around and doing nothing.

To clarify, I'm more concerned with the GPAs of people who got offers than when they ended up hearing.

GPAs are going to vary across schools, so this information is not useful. It would be better to ask about class rank. But even then, there are going to be many other variables at play, so class rank is not going to be all that helpful either.

I'm really only interested in replies from people who have/have had offers from Boies. Of course GPAs vary, but I figured I would get a good idea if enough people with offers/who have had offers in years past posted (especially whether undergrad GPA seemed to matter). I'm sure they don't give out a lot of offers, so could be a shot in the dark, but I tried.

Got an offer as a Top 5% transfer from a T2 to CCN and so did another person I know. Neither of us were on journals.

Thank you! Congrats! Were your undergrad GPAs also high? And how long did it take to hear back?

No firms care what your UG GPA is. Are you sure you are in law school? If you are, you should know this by now.

They asked for it on a form I filled out before the interviews. And Cravath asks for your undergrad transcript. But thanks for your input.
