Dinged by snail mail. Dated late January. NY office, post-CB.

FYI, they told me for that office that they had received ~350 applications, interviewed ~40, offer around 10-12.

I've heard this number as well. I guess this means we have about a 1/3 shot? CCN here, just had my CB and now the wait begins. It's my top choice so the wait will be agonizing lol.

Don't know if any other offers have been made yet but I also interviewed recently and they said everyone should hear sometime next week (for the NY office).

I heard a similar thing, although they indicated it might even be by the end of this week. No movement from anyone I'm guessing?

Got a CB for non-NY office here. Does anyone know what the CB to offer ratios are? Someone said earlier 40 interviews, 10-12 offers. Were those 40 screeners or CBs?

Well that's depressing :(. I was hoping the ratio was closer to 1:2. Oh well, see where it goes I suppose. Do you think that's true across the offices? (I suppose there's no way to know)

Did you have a screener before the callback or did they just reach out to you to arrange a callback initially?

Phew I thought someone had heard. Silence here as well, no calls / snail mail. I was expecting yesterday or today, maybe as late as tomorrow.
