Still haven't heard anything from screener firms...

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Sep 24, 2013 3:35 pm

OCI was near the beginning of August and there are a few firms that I still have not heard anything from. I followed up with them awhile ago and still nothing. Is it appropriate to follow up AGAIN? Just wondering why they can't just reject me so I can just know for sure.

Also I am giving up hope at this point of getting a 2L SA... Is it too late to start mass mailing? I know this should have been done a long long long time ago but it is what it is. I am interested in the LA market. I don't know if offers are all pretty much done at this point but I feel like they probably are.

Start mass mailing. Radio silence now for about 2 months? Yeah, hate to be a dick but its 99.999% likely they were all rejected.

I got a August 2012 screener rejection around Thanksgiving last year. Mass mail all over, use Symplicity, etc.

Our OCI was mid-August. Last week I got both a rejection and a callback invite from firms I had screeners with but had not heard anything from until now. I hadn't followed up with the firm I got a callback from so I can't say how effective that would be.

I don't see the harm in following up again. They are probably rejections but you don't lose anything but your time.
