Unless someone corrects me, yes. Why would they invite you to a dinner after they've already seen your grades and determined whether you're a weirdo.

Did they have a dinner for all offices?

^Yes I was at the Baker Botts dinner and it was for all offices, but they separated us by region e.g. DC table, TX table, etc.

Does anyone know specifically for Gibson if a lack of a dinner invitation means you've been dinged. I thought my interview went really well but haven't heard anything from them.

Generally, lack of a dinner invitation means you have been dinged. A few people received a CB without a dinner invite, but they were truly exceptional (top couple people in the class).

Last year CSM took the longest of any NY firm (atleast 2 days), so be patient

Two things: it seems like this thread is less active than normal and it's still only Tuesday. So it could be your class uses TLS less often than usual. If that's not the case, callbacks for Monday and Tuesday interviews are still very much on the table, save for the dinner shenanigans.

They're the exception: Paul comma Weiss, GDC, Baker, and Norton (never heard of this firm though). I would assume it's a normal callback for most other firms.

Last year Gibson Dunn and Paul Weiss were the two NY firms that did it (Gibson did it for all offices not just NY). I am not sure about other markets though. They aren't very common though

Usually. Sometimes a snail mail letter.
