I got cb's to mayer and dechert, and I believe cb's have gone out to the others. silence is typically not a great sign (see: cadwalader rejection earlier today), but hopefully you have a different experience.

Thanks. Yeah I'm not expecting any good news from them at this point, congrats on the cb's though!

+1 Hogan silence. Screener was over a week ago. Doesn't sound promising.

Think i got rejected from my cb yesterday; its a rough road ahead.

Sorry to hear that. Anything the rest of us can glean from your experience? Best of luck with your other CBs. And FYI: the tracker shows CB to offer ratio is less than 50% so a rejection is statistically bound to happen.

Any news on Milbank? It's been radio silence since Friday when they requested a copy of my transcript. Not sure what to make of it at this point. Is there anyone who has been dinged or did not receive a transcript request?

Got an offer today as well....I think every firm runs on a different schedule, but I imagine there will be some more offers this week and loads more in the weeks to come. Congrats & good luck to all!

Mine happened on the spot as the interview was coming to a wrap. They are sending a formal letter tomorrow, which will provide the deadline for acceptance. My guess (and hope) is that I can respond up until early September, as I have a callback somewhere else scheduled for late August & do not want to commit to any position until I know/can adequately weigh all options.

If you want, I can update you with how long I have once the formal letter comes tomorrow!

How are you guys handling thank you notes after CBs? I had a CB yesterday and their hiring committee apparently meets every Wednesday. Can't decide if a thank you note is worth the risk of sounding young and stupid. Thoughts?

not writing any. IMO, waste of time or only marginally beneficial, if not net neutral.

Who called with offer from Cahill? Screener or Interviewer? Also do you have initials of who you interviewed with?
