Dude WTF.

Put on your decision-making hat, reject a freaking firm, and free up some offer slots for other anxious students. There is no reason to hold open six offers. You're not going to go to six firms.


This. "Can I hold open 35 offers if 30 or them are non-V50"? Just STFU and pick a firm.


At the very least, just narrow down to two or three firms and decline offers from others. Every law student is smart enough to do that.


Just to add to this discussion, and to answer OP's actual question (since nobody has), yes, the offer counts toward the 5-offer limit (it's an offer for a 2L summer associate position, just like the rest). There are legitimate purposes for temporarily holding more than 5 offers, i.e., if you are interviewing in multiple markets. The NALP rules explicitly recognize this. Holding more than 5 offers open in this situation is probably advisable if you have no standout firms in either market and all of them seem, at least for now, to be a good fit. However, since you must make a decision, and out of courtesy to students who are still waiting to hear, it would be best to schedule some second looks, or at a minimum phone calls if second looks would require travel, ASAP to help you narrow down to a couple in each market.

If you are interviewing in only one market, however, I believe "just narrow down to two or three firms and decline offers from others" is TCR. According to NALP, you have one week from receipt of your sixth offer to decline an "excess" offer. Trust your gut instinct on which to decline.

I remembered 25 out of the 26 questions and how I answered, so I'm trying to figure out if I really dropped the ball on a few questions, because I thought I did pretty well on it.

I don't know who's on the list of people who moved on, nor do I know who took what test, so to me you're an anonymous person who took the same test.


Didn't make it past IWIA either, but why would you assume that the PST did you in? You don't need to get anything close to perfect on the test, so maybe it was your performance on the breakouts?

Any post-2Ls reading this thread willing to comment on decision between CSM and DPW if interest is in financial regulatory practice? (Dodd-Frank, Basel III?) DPW highlights this practice area on their website, hard to know re CSM. Also can't make head or tails of CSM's rotation system -- seems high-risk high-reward, while DPW seems more amorphous. Cravath potentially more "prestigious" (i.e., for exit opportunities down the road); DPW potentially has "nicer culture." Anyone else deciding between these two have any thoughts?


One of the banking partners at Cravath told me they don't really have a financial regulatory practice. Because of the complexity involved, regulatory practice is heavily driven by partners with lots of experience, which doesn't really work with the Cravath model.



Suppose I only intend to work at a firm (either CSM or DPW) for 2-3 years. Would it be fair to say, based on the above observation about the complexity involved with regulatory practice, that the presence or absence of this practice area at the firm shouldn't really affect my decision re which to go to? (On the theory that you'd only really do this kind of work well past your junior associate years.) Or can DPW associates "rotate" into this practice area early on?


I'm not sure about how DPW's Fin Reg group works, but I assume they still need junior associates to do some grunt work. You should talk to some people and figure out how competitive it is for new associates to get meaningful work in the group. What I meant to say is that if you want to do Fin Reg, go with DPW. Cravath just doesn't have a practice group for this particular area given its structure.

Sorry - repost from a bit earlier. Did anyone get a BCG email? I got the callback late last night, but I'm surprised that Recruiting's taking more than a day to follow up with logistical information and next steps.

Yes, I did. But it's by office. Don't worry, not getting the logistical email today won't affect you. They're not starting second rounds for a few weeks anyway.

Congrats on the offer. I had my cb on 8/26 and still haven't heard back, so it looks like I might've been dinged.

thanks! and i wouldn't give up hope at all. it's impossible to predict hard timelines, and the associates i went to lunch with said they've seen a lot of offers go out 4 days after the interview, so you're likely still very much in the game (and some ppl have been dinged the day after, which isn't you). good luck!

Anyone noticing Boston is really slow at giving offers post callback, or do I just really suck at callbacks? I've had 7 callbacks, most over a week ago, and nothing but silence. Got offers in another market within a few days post callback. What's going on Boston?
