Are you targeting non-NY markets? I'm in a similar situation but was told the other markets move much slower.

I can't speak for all non-NY markets but I targeted only Philly and Wilmington and have already heard back from all firms aside from a few I interviewed with on the last day of OCI. One of the interviewers said they got burned last cycle waiting too long to offer CBs and so are trying to move much more quickly this time around.

I'm a former Penn student but am close with someone doing OCI at Penn now, and they have also heard back from the majority of the Philly firms they interviewed with (I think like 5-6 CB's and a few rejection), as well as a CB in another large non-NYC market. So basically, I think we're well past the "other markets move slowly" time...

Keep your head up OP! Go to CPP and tell them your situation, mass mail every firm on the NALP list, use alumni contacts! It's not over, you're just gonna need to take a few extra steps of hustling. It'll be worth it at the end!

They did an initial round of callback invites the night of their screeners. As people decline those, I'd guess later calls may go out if you have not gotten a ding yet.
