Mailed a couple of Firms today. It's really becoming burdensome that I am not even getting screeners at this point. Still no ding/ offer from the firm I interviewed with during OCI.

I'm also applying to non-profit. I really just need an offer before finals begin :/

Definitely spread your options out. Most firms have already made offers and have definitely already screened. Have you tried smaller firms? They typically don't advertise.

A classmate accepted an offer there a few weeks ago.

Thanks! Do you mind disclosing school or at least school range?

Hm. During my very recent screener, I was told that they were only hiring one 1L. Maybe they said this to soften my impending rejection...

Has this happened to anyone else? I got a call out of the blue today from a firm I mailed about two months ago. I had literally forgotten about it. I had just gotten home from class and was about 30 min into a nap when I got called for an impromptu phone screener. :shock: Talk about being unprepared. She ended by saying I "may be getting a call back." Ummmm...what? I guess it's better than all the dings I've gotten this week, but c'mon- an unscheduled phone interview? Maybe a call back? I feel like that's just twisting the knife.

Damn. That's a pretty sizeable 1L class given how small the LA office is generally. Think their 2L class is only like 8 or so.

Has anyone heard from Akin Gump Dallas or Houston yet? I haven't heard anything for Pro Bono Scholars or their regular summer associates, so I am assuming it's a no go and they just haven't been kind enough to formally reject me yet.

Also -- I had an interview with Jackson Walker Houston way back before I even got my grades, and was super surprised to get an interview that early. I thought it went super well and I followed up with my grades and everything, mandatory thank you note, all of that, but it's been radio silence since then. I didn't get the impression from our communications that they would just leave me hanging -- am I being naive and is all hope lost?

Not sure about Dallas/Houston but NY has sent invites for callbacks.

I had offers from Akin (not pro bono) and JW Houston in January.
