A question: will firms pay for hotel stays over the weekend, assuming that I will have a cb on Monday next week?

I had a Fri CB and then Mon/Tues CBs. I called Firm #1 and asked if I could stay the weekend. They made me call Firm #2 and #3 to see if they'd agree. They all did. It was fine. Looking back, though, I have no idea how Firm #1 would know if I was just lying.

Just call and ask

Thanks a lot! Just to clarify - you called the firms instead of their travel agencies? :D

I suppose when Firm 1 later billed 2 and 3 for their share of the weekend, 2 and 3 might have said, wait, we didn't agree to that.

Ya probs. But firms (even small ones) throw around money like it's candy - I'd be shocked if that actually ever happened.

Anyone hear from Perkins Coie? Was told in my screener that I'd get a callback, but I never heard back from them.

Hey guys, do I have a shot at DCJF? My stats are bad (GPA: 3.1sh), and I am now leaning towards not going. Thanks!

Do you have callbacks/offers from NYC AJF? If not, you should go, just to get as much exposure to as many firms as possible.

Thanks for your response! I now have 5 cbs but no offer yet. Do you think I should still go?

You don't have an offer in hand yet. Skip at your own risk.

I personally would go, of course. I think it would be crazy to cancel interviews with employers without an offer of employment in the bag. But everyone's risk tolerance is different.

Weil offer 8/10 (cb on 8/9)

The recruiter told me that Weil's turnaround is one business day typically.
