I'd be very surprised, lawyers might work weekends but I doubt recruiters often do.

I assume the 24-48 hours rule doesn't really apply if you have a Friday screener?

Think only the Philly office has made callbacks.


I know of two callbacks from Dechert in NY. One of them was with interviewer VF. I do not know about the other.

During recruiting season they most definitely do.

Some definitely might, but anecdotally it seems like others don't. Received a CB by phone Friday afternoon indicating I would get a follow-up email, which has not come yet. That leads me to believe they're off.

Anyone heard from Herbert Smith, Schulte with TJ (that interview had gone particularly well so I'm a little surprised) and Dechert NY with SS?

3Ls - I've been dropping off my resume/transcript at firms I don't have interviews with and chatting up their recruiters. My grades are shit. Is it worth it to keep up this strategy? Anyone had any luck with this? I've done this for like 10 firms and it has resulted in only one on-the-spot interview.

Also ding from Cleary DC...in response to weekend movement- from the recruiters I've spoken with (only 3 different firms, so small sample size), they definitely are not working on weekends even though they said this is their busiest time of year (their words, not mine). Have also reached out to recruiters on Friday afternoons via email and was told they'd get back to me Monday morning.

Also wondering about this. Both via regionals and regular OCI...specifically Paul Hastings and Latham for regular OCI.

How about Skadden London, any news?

Haven't heard anything from Paul Hastings (LA) or Latham (LA) for regular OCI.

As for LA regionals: Akin, Simpson, MoFo, Skadden, Sidley, and Kirkland have all sent some CB's or ding letters.
