I wanted to respond to these two points. The first thing you say is VERY true. Firms are sort of self-conscious beings and they don't want other people's castoffs or rejections. If a firm asks you where else are you doing callbacks, if you reply, "Only place I got a callback!" you are nearly sure to be dinged. 100%. You're better answering anything else but this. I agree not answering questions is bad, but it's not the worst thing. Try to be vague yet specific. "Just some firms here in NYC like Chardbourne." .
I got asked this question by all 4 interviewers during my callback, and I told every one of them that they were my only callback. One of them even said "that's good news for us!" Offer.
It's probably still good advice to stay vague, but just wanted to let other people who gave this answer know that it's not a death sentence.
I go to NYU and given how my interviewers responded to how I answered this question (small list of firms), I'd say saying that this is my only callback would be a death sentence. People expect us to have a lot.
