Got a weird "thank you for interviewing, we are reviewing your resume and feedback from interviewers and trying to move as quickly as possible " from a firm. Is this a soft ding or? I know some people have already heard from them regarding CBs. Am I on some sort of waitlist?

Re: Foley. I got an email saying thank you for interviewing and they were reviewing my resume and feedback from interviewers and that they try to make every effort to move quickly but if i had questions about my candidacy i should contact them. Is this a soft ding or what? waitlist?

This is like a waitlist. I have seen classmates who showed me their ding from them, and it specifies that they are unable to offer additional interviews. You are still in the safe zone.

Does anyone know historically what firms don't even send out dings, you just never hear from them after screeners?

I'm in a very narrow (but rapidly expanding) niche OCI'ing for offices mostly outside the screening area. I had one "We are reviewing your application" type email from one firm at two offices (SV and SEA), and had confirmations mid-last week from the screening interviewers themselves at three other firms ((NY, LA, and a new satellite office in LA) that they are working behind the scenes to get me into those respective offices. But I haven't received anything besides that from any of those firms since. It sounds (from this thread) that all four of the firms have already sent out CBs/dings in this area, but alas I still haven't received either. All my screening interviews were Monday and Tuesday last week.

Does anyone have any insight for somewhat alternative application paths on when to hear back?
