I don't have any new information to share, but does anyone know if the office has a gym? I didn't really have a consistent recruiting coordinator walking me from office to office to ask, and at this point asking would just be awkward. It's not that important, but I was trying to visualize a day-to-day routine.

A long time ago. I'm not going to get into specifics on turnaround time, school or rank as this may out me as it's not a huge class. It was within the time frame they said it would be in. Sorry I don't have any useful information. Waiting back from these things is bar none the most stressful part of the law school process, because your future is riding largely on subjectivity.

To the poster above, have you accepted an offer to summer there?

Again, it's a small class and I've been told I have a distinct writing style.

I also heard that Dechert was done in NY (I know a partner there). So I don't understand why they need to hang on to people and not give them a response.

Makes no sense, very inconsiderate.

They massively overyielded a couple years ago. I heard that they are very careful/conservative in giving offers now because of it. There may still be offers out that people still haven't accepted and they are holding onto some candidates in case the outstanding offers aren't accepted.

I also interviewed 2-3 weeks ago in their late rounds of callbacks and haven't heard yet though I think they were supposed to get back to me a couple days ago.

ETA: Or maybe they are done and just didn't bother letting us know. I'd follow up with them if you're still waiting, I got something else so I don't really care.

Most likely some sort of wait list? Although having another offer isn't a bad position to be in.

I highly doubt any firms are still waiting on offers or actively maintaining waitlists at this point. Especially in New York. This is coming from someone who is in the mass mail mode and receives about 10+ "our firm has completed hiring" e-mails a day, in markets that aren't New York (which is known for being much faster than others).

Dechert NY is known for giving the silent-treatment post-CB; pretty low if you ask me.
