Sidley Chicago

I have seen a ton of Sidley Chicago dings on TLS, but are there any offers out there? I know they are doing a lot of CBs this week.

I am wondering the same thing. Had my callback on 8/23 and was told on 8/28 that they were planning on making offers this week. But I have yet to hear of anyone having received an offer already.

Not OP, but all of the dings I have seen on TLS were post-screener dings. I have yet to hear of anyone receiving either a ding or offer after CBs.

I know of 1 person with an offer from a callback the week of August 19-23. I had a callback that week as well and haven't heard anything.

Would you mind sharing which law school the person who received the offer is at?

That's awesome, congrats! Do you mind sharing what school (or generally what school)?

T14 in Chicago. I am not 100% sure, but the associate who coordinated my CB and who called about the offer implied that Sidley's recruitment team for my school just met for the first time in a while about decisions. Leads me to believe that the firm may have loose quotas for certain schools. So you may be safe if no one at your school has heard back from them post-CB for a while; the team in charge of your school may just be waiting to meet. Best of luck!

This is pretty much the impression I have as well.

Well...my friend at MVP has an offer here. I believe (s)he had the CB the week of the 19th and had a very quick turnaround but I could be off a bit.
