Still waiting on Hogan Lovells (TH) for ANY notification. I haven't heard a peep since AJF. Is this normal? This is the only firm I haven't heard from.

This is the case for a couple firms for me (though not Hogan, I didn't interview with them). I think some are just slower than others.

I had TH and was invited for a callback the day after the interview. Not sure whether Hogan dings, but I think at this point silence is a ding or at least some waitlist of sorts; at least, that's how I'm interpreting the firms I haven't heard from yet.

Was your last interview with the hiring partner? If yes, ding is likely, but not certain; one or more of your interviewers may just have been tardy in submitting their feedback to the hiring partner. If no, the wait means nothing; the hiring partner makes the final decision.

Do you mean last interview of the callback? I'm not OP but wondering if this holds true for CBs generally.

Yes, I mean last interview of the CB. This holds true for CBs at Cravath in both lit and corp, but not generally at other firms. Cravath's CBs are a bit different than at most firms, and Cravath does not have a hiring committee that has to meet to make hiring decisions, so same-day offers are the norm.

I'd be interested to see a poll of how many CBs people got.
