I heard from Cahill on Thursday (MS).

Also just dinged by Schulte, very much expected after how that one went.

I'll add to the pile of Schulte dings (CS). The interview went pretty badly IMO so I'm not surprised. I'm a transfer and it doesn't look like they were very selective at my old school either, so it looks like they're really looking for people who can articulate a good "why Schulte" answer.

I scored a Cadwalader CB on Friday (LP).

I got cadwalader NY (AW) via phone call and follow up email on Friday. Sorry. If it helps any, I notified them late Firday that I wouldn't be taking the CB. Hope that frees it up for the above anon inquiring about it.

I know some people have heard but I am holding out hope as well. Can't complain though I had a good week.

I have 4 CBs so far - does it make sense to begin mass mailing?

Want to know this as well. Starting to freak out. I know other people have zero and I feel for them, but 4 CBs feels low when I was told average is 6-8. (Unless that isn't really an average amount? That would be nice to know.)

You should start mass mailing, just in case. There doesn't seem to be any downside, other than time and effort, and that effort spent would be worth it, if only to ease your stress.

Also, you might want to do a mock interview with a family member or friend if you think that might have been one of the factors. And ask for real criticism. Having friends or being sociable doesn't always translate to being a good interviewer, especially in this weird law firm set-up. My friend is at median and she has 10 callbacks (including V10 firms) because she practiced interviewing.

Damn she has 10 CBs at median?

Do people at NYU really still have 0-1 CBs at this time?

There are people in the Columbia thread who also have 0 CBs. I think it might be more common than we think

Even bidding smartly? I mean I have shitty shitty grades, like bottom 1/3. But I just bid on the largest summer classes that were least selective. I don't think I even interviewed with any v20 firms.

I really feel for anyone in that position though. But there's still all the Friday Screener CBs waiting to go out, so chins up and reach out to OCS first thing Monday. I'd probably start mass mailing too.

there was a handout that had average number of callbacks in each grade range if anyone has it
