Timeline for following up with SA interview

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jul 20, 2016 3:38 pm

Had an in-office SA interview last week. I felt as though it went well, I clicked with all the attorneys. This is a possible overthinking on my part, but should I contact the firm's HR department sometime soon to check on the status of my decision? I interviewed with that firm earlier than they do OCI, so I am not sure how long it would take to hear a reply, if there even is a quantifiable way of determining when decisions would be sent out.

How long decisions take can vary wildly between firms. Regardless, you probably shouldn't email the firm about your status less than 2 weeks after your callback stage interview. If you still haven't heard anything by the time your OCI starts, I would probably email them then saying you are interviewing with other firms, but really enjoyed their firm and wondering if any update.

Lol. Try and not be so neurotic. They haven't forgotten you, and you'll know soon enough. That being said, if you don't get an offer by the end of July, I would start expecting a ding.
