8-10 probably, depending on which firms


On the same note, how many CBs will typically make you safe for at least one offer? Seems like most firms are about 50+% CB:Offer?


Depends on a bunch of factors. Usually the smaller the class size and the lower the Vault ranking -> the lower the CB:Offer ratio.

Big half regional markets, half NY/CHi and so far no bites yet, though I suspect the regional firms wouldn't get back to me until next week anyways.

Lol at 8-10. If you're around median and get that you're the world's greatest interviewer

Roughly top 10-15%, 2 CBs from day 1, silence since... Happy that I at least have those, but still kind of baffled

I bid mostly Chi, and I've gotten one CB from a Thursday interview. Roughly top 25-30%.

Not panicking yet, but it's still a concern.

Not a Michigan student/alumnus. But I am feeling good things for you folks this year. Hang in there.

Seriously. Although I think this OCI season has been further testament to the fact that once you're past a firm's GPA threshold grades don't matter nearly as much. I have a couple of slightly-above-median friends with multiple CBs whereas I'm still empty-handed at 3.6x/NYC, and I know people in similar situations.

I'm below median and I have two callbacks. I think I'm a pretty good interviewer, and I have a good story about what I want and why, but honestly one of them was really just dumb luck and the other was at least partially luck.

I posted the statement you quoted, and I agree with this. Stay optimistic for now, as we're early for the general hiring model, but it's important to be realistic.

Any weekend movement? I got a few rejection letters from earlier in the week, but anything good?

Also looking for Callback info on K&L Gates in Chi. Had an interview that I thought went extremely well. Interviewer even said "When you go on your callbacks, and I'm sure you'll be getting one from K&L..." but since then, radio silence. I don't know how to take it.

and is Paul Hastings sending dings via snail mail? I haven't received anything yet but no CB either, and I know they've gone out. May just be a weekend related mail delay. :(

bidding mostly chi w/ top 25% grades was not the best idea
