What's the most callbacks you've heard of someone getting?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Sep 04, 2013 5:17 pm

I'm really just curious. What's the most callbacks you've heard of someone getting (from both mass mailing and OCI)?

I got 15 last year, but I was not the highest in my class, by a good margin.

At Yale, you can basically schedule as many interviews as you want during OCI, but most people don't schedule more than a dozen or so. I know a couple of people who got CB invitations from every screener, but didn't bother scheduling more than 5-6 screeners. Those people could presumably have had as many CBs as they wanted. FWIW, highest actual number I know of is 13.

ITT people fellate themselves.

ETA: there was a story around here of someone with like 17 CBs and zero offers, so you guys are all pretty proud of yourselves for hitting a number that really means nothing.

I was offered 26 callbacks, 21 from oci (8 rejections) and 5 from mass mail. But I canceled a bunch once I got my first offer. CCN, above median, no journal.

Well done, now go pick one and remember that none of this matters when you start working.

NALP guidelines are to not keep more than 5 offers open at a time.
"Pursuant to NALP Principles and Standards Part V.A.3, a student should not hold open more than five offers of employment at any one time. For each offer received that places a student over the offer limit, the students should, within one week or receipt of the excess offer, release an offer."

I am irritated that you scooped me using anon inappropriately.

Not the quoted anon and I sympathize with the desire to put a "bragger" in his place, but I have to admit that I felt a lot more secure with the possibility of being no-offered when I knew I had 15+ offers the previous fall. While it may strike some of you as greedy self-aggrandizement to go on so many callbacks, I didn't want to rule out any firms based on rankings and I figured 3L job hunting, if necessary, would go a lot better if I didn't call up firms I refused to even do a callback with asking for a job. And before y'all start bitching about NALP, I turned down most of the offers very politely within hours of getting them. I only had 4 outstanding for more than a day.

Nothing wrong with going on that many callbacks, although I do wonder whether you really gained much credibility with a firm that you rejected within 24 hours of being offered a position.

This is true. Since I was very happy with the firm I picked and didn't have to go through 3L recruiting, I can't comment on whether anyone would even remember me from those firms. That being said, the firm I very nearly went to (had the offer open for over three weeks and had constant communication with the hiring partner) called me towards the end of my 2L summer to see if I was happy with the firm I picked. Although the conversation never got there, the implication was that they would still be interested in making me a full-time offer for after 3L / after I clerked.

This is all my long-winded way of saying callbacks are, IMO, a great way to network. We beat 0Ls and 1Ls to the ground telling them to network and latch onto every opportunity to get a job, and then we turn on them the second they're "too" successful at it, as if anyone in our industry has job security.
