You can still access it, which is nice, but I can't send or receive emails.

Spoke with an employer earlier and he was already fully aware of the entire situation. KD remains Batman.

Going well for me so far. I think it's going well for most others as well. Should be a good year for jobs.

I actually don't know a single person without a healthy number of callbacks. Unless they're lying or exaggerating, but I think it's going to be a very good year.

SHould be mass mailing and networking as hard as you can, obviously. It's not too late but you need to move fast.

Prob should keep talk like this down as to not panick your classmates not in the same boat.

To those not in the boat don't panick it's still early and especially secondary markets (heck, even just non-NY) move slower. I would start mass mailing though if you haven't already.

Yeah 26 screeners and 1 cb at a small lit firm. So yeah if everyone you've talked to has 5+ cbs it's because those are the only people talking about callbacks. I don't go around announcing my lacks of cbs. .2 below median, some dc but mostly secondary markets

eta: only 1 ding tho.

3.49 here. Mix of NYC, DC interviews. 2 CB (1 DC, 1NYC), 6 rejections, 16 outstanding. Disappointed with my performance and starting to question my entire bid strategy...wishing I had focused more heavily on secondary markets/hometown (Nash.). Thoughts on mass mailing firms that came to OGI but that I did not bid on?

There is absolutely nothing for you to lose. Do it.

Some of the secondary markets move really slowly. I didn't hear back from two of my Monday screeners until Friday. And then another one even emailed this weekend saying the hiring committee was going to meet next week which I thought was weird. But anyway, I think there are a lot of moving parts and the process is long from over so don't get yourselves down!
