When do firms generally finalize SA class?

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Sep 08, 2013 2:41 pm

When do firms generally finalize their SA classes? Does anyone have a sense for when the latest callback interviews with V100 firms might take place or when the latest offers are extended? I am sort of scrambling to set a few interviews up through connections, but don't know if it's too late at this point.

It is likely too late at some firms and definitely not too late at others. You can't know which are which so you should be doing everything you can to snag more interviews.

I got callbacks from a V50 and V100 in mid October, and I know people that got vault offers in November. Just do your best and keep grinding - it is SUPER early for the most part.

And it goes without saying, check Symplicity.

Sometimes, Symplicity postings can be a bit dubious - I suspect several of the mid-level/senior associate postings are being posted because employment-based green cards require a lack of qualified domestic applicants and the sponsors are trying to prove the person being sponsored is unique. Then there are the chutzpah postings looking for unpaid "interns" that probably violate the FLSA. This is not one of those times. SA postings on Symplicity are real and apparently sometimes lead to offers.

I got my SA from an interview the second week in October. I was the last person in my class, but you still have time.
