Yes, this happens. (Not often though).


If you're getting a post CB ding from somewhere like S&C, then you definitely need to re evaluate how you're presenting yourself in CBs

I'm calling BS on this one. I don't even need to pull outside data. If it's rare then it wouldn't happen multiple times, even to the same person.

Confidence, sociability, desire to do the work. Thanks 90% of a callback right there. Oh and don't say anything bad about anything. Ever. Not even I don't like X market because of whatever.

Is it a bad sign if CB was around this time, but no news?

The person who got the offer was more of a special scenario. I wouldn't worry yet. I'm also still waiting, CB last wednesday

Anonymous User wrote:People who interviewed w/ McKinsey @ EIP: I'm trying to make sense of the EIP data. It says the Screener:CB:Offer figures are 54:18: 3-5 (somewhere in that neighborhood).

But since McKinsey's interview "rounds" are probably unique among those who come to EIP, it's unclear whether the 18 CB figure means that (A) 18 people were invited to IWIA or (B) 18 people passed IWIA and were invited "back."

I can't really see McKinsey just mass inviting all ~60 EIP screeners to IWIA.

So did anyone who did EIP with them at the Charles NOT get an IWIA invitation?

Last year 18 2Ls and 16 3Ls were invited were invited to IWIA. These numbers are consistent with the number of JDs who were at the first of the four sessions this morning, so it probably hasn't changed significantly.

The normal OCS data set doesn't properly capture the rest of the process, so we can only guess based on outside sources what the drop off rate is for each round after the IWIA invite.

FWIW, Covington DC told me that they strive to make decisions within 48 hours and told a friend they meet 3x a week which seems to corroborate that. Hope that is helpful.

I heard the same, but seems like they are taking longer this time.

Anyone hearing of any Wachtell offers? My CB was this week, so it's probably too soon to start getting worried.
