How much? Just you?

What sort? Callbacks? Dings?

When? Today, yesterday, the day before?

Why troll?


Many people from a variety of T14 schools got screeners and callbacks. Well-founded rumors of a few offers as well. This is all within the last 2 weeks.

Heard from Chi office that I would hear back about status of my application by the end of the week.

Not sure if this applies to everyone else - I had to force their hand because I have an expiring offer

Dear Anonymous User,

Thank you for applying to the 1L Scholars Program. We appreciate the interest which you have shown in Skadden, Arps.

We are interviewing and receiving inquiries from a very large number of law students. Unfortunately, this means that we are unable to invite you to our offices for interviews. Our decision not to invite you was a difficult one for us and we do hope that you stay in touch with the Firm.

Once again, we sincerely appreciate your interest in Skadden, Arps and we encourage you to submit an updated resume next summer for a 2L position. My best wishes for your success.

Sincerely,

Anonymous User

how badly do 1L scholars need to mess up their second semester grades to not get invited back for a second summer?

I wasn't a 1L scholar, but a few of my friends were, I summered there, and I'm starting as an associate full-time this fall. Based on conversations I've had, its very, very, very hard to not get asked back for 2L and eventually get a full-time offer. Unless you absolutely blow 1L spring via a severe drop off in grades (think B/B+ average sinking to C+ or worse) or commit a serious felony against a senior partner during the summer, you're good. It takes a lot for a firm like Skadden to send someone away empty handed after they've already hired them.
