Spoke with a couple of Sidley partners -- they haven't hired ILs in several years...

Baker Botts interviewed a bunch of people at UT last week (after grades came out) and offered to at least one student. V&E is interviewing tomorrow.

I'm not the OP but interviewed with the diversity program (pre-grades) and was under the impression from HR that there aren't callbacks... but maybe I was mistaken?

Baker Botts Houston (along with the other Big 3 from what I have been told) has conducted many 1L interviews and made offers without grades. The interviews are still on-going, but most have been from T10 and UT. BB did on-campus interviews at UT last week.

Question!

Received an offer yesterday from Firm #1 with a two-week exploding deadline. I have a separate CB with Firm #2 scheduled next Wednesday for a different market. Should I notify Firm #2 of this offer ahead of the CB?

My initial impression is no and that I should wait until the CB, at which point I can notify the recruiting coordinator post-CB of my impending deadline (which at that point will be one week away).

Thoughts?

I'm in the same boat as you, offer in one market and CB in another next week. I was thinking the same thing you were and was going to mention it during the interview next week. I figured there's nothing that would change between now and the CB, so there's no point in mentioning it before then.

Invite from Latham Watkins DC for lunch (no 1L possibility, but schmoozing for 2L it seems.)

Grade requests from McKenna Long DC and Cadwalader NY.

Grades are back and around top third at DCNG; diverse as well.

Haven't sent out anything yet--worth it to start applying to any/every diversity fellowship thing or should I focus on school and take an RA position + work at a clinic over the summer?

Applied to secondary markets where I have ties around the beginning of December, so far nothing but dings or silence. Top 15% at MVP, non-diverse. Safe to say this isn't happening or still too early on in the process?
