There's no reason to connect a callback to a particular poster.

You also have 35 posts, there are UT posters with thousands of posts who maybe don't want their potential employer to see all those posts.

Considering how you underestimate how easy it is to piece together just a page of post information to link it to an actual person, and how there's absolutely no benefit to posting from your actual handle, I don't see why you seem to care so much what other people choose to post under their own handle.

I mean, why do you actually care enough to point it out? C'mon son.

Any other word on Dallas CBs besides Akin NRF and Locke Lord?


Based on word of mouth I would add V&E, Weil, Strasburger, Winstead, and McKool Smith.

Any word on Baker Botts? I assume they hosted an invite-only dinner similar to V&E and NRF?

Nope; it's not a dinner but invites have went out for a brunch tomorrow.

Completely unrelated to this thread, but related to the readers: The distributions from spring are finally up.

I did I liked them a lot. No word on any CB yet from them, but both interviewers seemed very nice to me and had a good conversation. Work seems high caliber for Fort Worth

What is the range of time in which a firm might give a callback? I've heard everything from 48 hours to two weeks.

I'd shorten that to "At the end of the screener" and protract it to "I dunno, some firms are crazy, maybe like a month?"
