Thought their hiring committee meets on Wednesdays? Did they meet earlier this week?

Wondering as well. Had CB late last week but was told the hiring committee won't be meeting until friday

Edit:
Just heard hiring committee won't meet until Monday the 29th.


Did you hear that from Pillsbury?


Yeah I talked to recruiting. Also to the poster who says I don't know what I'm talking about. I know of exactly 1 v10 and 1 v20 office who filled their (small) summer classes before oci. I guarantee you that neither was on your campus during oci interviewing for their DC location. How do I know? I did a callback with both before oci and was directly told by each hiring partner that they had filled up their classes weeks before oci. They did way more pre oci interviews and people accepted not wanting to go through oci. Sure these aren't firms that have 20+ summers in DC but this info is legit. If a moderator wants to pm me for more info I'll be happy to provide it.


Which DC V10? I know of people who got callbacks from OCI at all of them. Or do you mean DC offices for overall V rankings, in which case I assume you're talking about STB?

Congrats on these offers! I'm curious about your thoughts on Jenner DC. I really liked my interviewer on campus, but it seems like it's not quite in the range of e.g. Wilmer and Gibson. Would love to hear what you're thinking.


Same anon from before: Jenner's my first choice! Why do you say they're not quite in the same range as Wilmer/Gibson?


Thanks so much for your response! Just going off of Vault rankings, which I know is dumb, but not sure how else to compare : (

Sorry I wasn't clear. It's the latter. The overall rankings where a v10 and v20 in this case have DC offices but aren't DC based. This is based off the overall rankings, not the DC specific vault rankings.

Nothing like calling it out by also going anon

It is worth clarifying when discussing Vault whether people mean the regular Vault 100 rankings (which are kind of meaningless in DC, or least only a loose proxy) or the specific Vault "best firms in DC" ranking (http://www.vault.com/company-rankings/l ... sRankID=15). Almost all of those were at my school's OCI and giving callbacks. But I would believe that STB filled their (tiny) summer class before OCI season started - know of at least one offer from my school.

STB is definitely still doing CBs. They may have very, very few spots left, but they have scheduled callbacks.

Anyone know how A&P does rejections after the CB? Had my CB over a week ago and haven't heard anything so I'm taking that as a bad sign. Am I waiting for snail mail or do they do an email?

Anything from K&L Gates? From past years it seems like they move slowly. Had my CB this week.

I was both the anon you quoted and the anon who was specifically told that the hiring committee meets Wednesdays (which has been echoed elsewhere on these fora), so I am not sure what happened. I do know that I am not the only person who interviewed that Thursday and received an offer the following Tuesday.
