I think Cooley tends to give their offers pretty quickly after the callback, I got mine the next day

I know someone in the same boat who just got an offer. Also know someone who just got a callback, even though the screener was like a month ago. So as recently as a few days ago they were still looking. Can't hurt to express your continued interest, imo.

Damn a callback this late? I wonder if it's because people aren't accepting their offers or if Perkins is just slow with making decisions.

That is crazy! Sorry to hear you're still waiting. Even for the SV market, that's very slow. What is your background/school? Have you checked in with them to let them know you're still interested?

Median at T6, STEM in undergrad, no tie. Yes I have checked with them and two said they were still considering while another ignored my email. I can understand if they just ding me for whatever reason but this waiting is far more confusing and frustrating. Ugh.

I think PC is just slow as hell... Their HQ [seattle] has taken so damn long...People in the Seattle thread have had CBs 4 weeks ago and still not heard anything.
I had a Seattle PC screener 4 weeks ago. Nothing.
