I interviewed with one of their pro bono committee partner chairs and he seemed to give 0 fucks in response to me mentioning pro bono (the only interview I ever did and I only did it because he was the committee chair). Might have had more to do with it being a 6pm interview and him seeming to give 0 fucks about me in general.
I agree that generally you're best off not mentioning pro bono with most firms. There's not much to gain with it and it could hurt you (mostly in the sense that it's something hard for the interviewer to talk about if they don't personally particularly care about it and thus that makes the interview go poorly).
My Jenner Interviews did not give a fuck about pro bono either. LOL at them dinging you for not bringing it up.
