I ended up giving some of my homebrew that was just finishing up conditioning at the end of the summer.

Also, I was convinced I was going to as well and got an offer. It's probably just anxiety about the process.

Same here. Unless you have really messed up, I wouldn't worry too much (easier said than done, I know).

Hey guys,

As you guys wrap up your summers in biglaw, I was hoping that you could post a review to http://www.biglawrefuge.com. I'm the creator of the biglawrefuge, which is a platform for lawyers and law students to share data with their peers. I'm hoping to increase law school and law firm transparency, and your review would really help!

You can share it anonymously on the website.

Also FWIW, when I was a summer associate at Sullivan & Cromwell back in 2010, I fretted like crazy about receiving an offer. It didn't come until the last hour of my last day there (around 4:00PM on a Friday). Apparently, I had nothing to worry about, but I sure did! Hoping that you all receive good news.

Your site looks great but I go to a school not on the list (TTT) and so I can't sign up.

It took more than a month for me to hear back from one place.
