Which firms? My offers all came within a day or two of the interview but I think this is a firm-specific thing.

You're going to get mixed results. Like a poster above said, a lot of firms will get back to you within a day or two. Although, some will get back to you in a week or two. One of my Chicago offers was within 24 hours, while another took 5 days. Some firms meet daily to evaluate candidates, others meet weekly, and some meet every other week. It's going to be firm dependant.

I'm non-northwestern. I did a CB with K&E a few weeks ago. I received an offer 2 days later I believe.

Anyone who had Latham CB within last 2 weeks got an offer? Interview couldn't have gone better and partner said she'd go to bat but it's been almost 2 weeks of silence

I did my Latham CB about 2.5 weeks ago and received an offer 4-5 days later, not sure what is normal for them though

For those of you who had CB with Baker & McKenzie, how long did it take to get offer/ding?

3L who interviewed in 2015... still haven't heard from them. That should tell you what you need.

Same day offers are not unusual. Can confirm at least two this year.
