Recent male alum who just got back from interviewing on campus.

Men: Please, please shave or at least groom your facial hair. I met with at least two interviewees yesterday who were sporting a neck beard and at least 2-day+ stubble. I don't care if you have a beard, but if you're going to go that route, it better look groomed.

I have a Cadwalader ding, and I know through the grapevine that they've given out callbacks.

Right around now is when fatigue set in for me when I went through this process. Try to stay upbeat tomorrow and next week during callbacks. Keep up the grind until you get an offer!

Do you mean Cadwalader have given out callbacks? Or all the firms we have interviewed with in the past few days?
