IDK what the etiquette in this situations is and I don't want a strike against me for not thanking my interviewer for the invitation if that's what is expected of me.

There's no need to reach out to the interviewer

Quick question: If we receive a CB that we don't intend on taking, I'm assuming it's good form to call and turn it down or do they not really care?

Turn it down. That way, they know they can offer a callback slot to someone else. It'd be helpful for others!

If you're asking whether you should turn it down or just never respond, yes, turn it down.

But I think you're asking whether you need to call. An email is fine at this stage I think, though others may disagree.

Do firms try and lock up the top candidates first before they go deeper into the class or is it just a free for all?

Anyone have an idea when LA firms will start reaching out re: callbacks? A bunch did interviews on Friday, but I haven't heard back from any yet.

Free for all, but firms might go back and interview more people if they aren't hitting their desired yield.

Depends on the firm IME. The dinner firms (Gibson, Munger) will wait several days. The satellites of ny firms (skadden, simpson, ect) often extent cbs within 36 hrs

CSM is doing interviews on Monday too. Not surprising they would wait.

How many callbacks should one expect so far? At what point should we start mass-mailing?
If something is going wrong, I would like to fix it before it's too late.

I have had one so far from my Thursday interview. A lot of people posting about it kind of got me freaked out.
