Have heard from seven firms now. One turned around with in hours of interviewing, one today. Firms are definitely still calling back. I wouldn't stress much over it if you haven't seen your firms name show up on these pages (or even if they have, I heard from one days after it first showed up in this thread).

A ding might happen, but I expect a lot of radio silence from the firms I'm expecting to ding me. There isn't necessarily a requirement for firms to tell you that you've been passed over for more qualified candidates.

And it's still pretty early for dings, considering firms have to go through the CB process and get people accepting offers before they know what their class looks like. So those of us who might not be an initial CB may be waiting for awhile to see if people accept offers once they start rolling out.

Today:

Pepper Hamilton

Yesterday (Monday):

Brinks

@PLIP (Thursday):

Fitzpatrick.

Trying to get these callbacks knocked out while class sizes are still open and they arent trying to make decisions at the margin. Interesting I got one each so far in NYC, Bos, and Chi, and all my interviews were pretty evenly split between the 3 (total of 14)
