Nope... radio silence from Skadden since submitting my application at the very beginning of this year.

FWIW, I actually e-mailed making sure they got the app, citing the fact that I received no e-mail confirmation as a concern, but they said they got it and don't send e-mail confirmations.

What's your guys' basic data points? CCN / 3-4 yrs WE here.

The program sounds great, I'm really hoping for at least an interview after a couple of diversity dings sofar :?

Also got an interview today (NY)! Anyone know what the GPA cut off was for past scholars? Got my first B today (outlier, but still hurts), and hoping I didn't shoot myself in the foot for this opportunity :(

CCN diverse

Unsure if you would know, but so they do screeners and callbacks?

Last year they only had one day-long interview process, so the screener thing is new. I assume people who do well will get a callback for the day-long thing.

Anyone not from NYU/Columbia get an invitation? I'd be surprised if they were shipping in people from other cities for 20 minutes..

Do you go to Columbia or NYU? Because if you're traveling that makes sense

You misread that. The exact wording was "for an initial 20-minute screen interview at our office". We were asked to select from a couple 3 hour blocks within which we would be given a 20 minute slot.
