Freshfields CB (call around 7)

Haven't heard anything about Weil (and don't expect to hear from them until they ding me... and I really did like the interviewer :( ).

So no CBs for me...I have just shy of a 3.5. I got bad advice from CSO and bid straight Chicago. I am massmailing NYC now. Any hope?

Any advice?

For sure:
NETWORK! It's getting late, but it would be worth a shot to email NU alums at firms you have a chance at (a lot of them). Meet them for coffee or whatever. Be personable. Commiserate about OCI. You may be surprised at how helpful networking is.
Sign up for as many interviews tomorrow as you can where there are open spots.
Keep mass-mailing NY.
Go to the hospitality suites tomorrow and resume drop.
Mass-mail your home town market (if it is a secondary market).
SMILE! Do what you need to to put on a relaxed face.

Maybe:
Send follow up emails/emails of continued interest to the recruiting coordinators at firms you interviewed with last week that did not ding you.

Definitely hit up those NYC hospitality suites and talk about how much you love transactional.
