I know that our attorneys enjoyed meeting you, as did I. Since we have a small summer program, our process takes a little longer, but please do not view this as a sign of disinterest! Have a wonderful weekend."


It literally says do not take this as a sign of disinterest. I would just have some faith. Maybe they are just trying to make sure everyone is the right fit. They would let you go if they had enough people to fill the class.

Thank you for giving me hope! It's a rough process.


Very rough. I heard today 50% don't get CBs. You are not alone in the struggle.


If you're not a firm's first choice hopefully you hear back if/when their first choice goes elsewhere.

Email recipient here: Cooley offer @ 6 p.m. from Cooley Reston. :D


So happy for you! Told you to keep the faith! :)

So I guess it's time to start reporting results for posterity...

Approx. class rank: just shy of top 1/3
Journal: secondary
Moot Court, Mock Trial, etc.: nope
IP background?: nope
Significant work experience?: yes
#Years out of undergrad: 5+
Prestigious undergrad: not at all
Other relevant factors: language skills?
Target markets: ny/boston
Type of work sought: biglaw corp
Self-assessed interviewing ability: A-
#Screeners or callbacks prior to EIW from mass-mailing: 1
#Screeners received for EIW: 18
#Callbacks received from EIW screeners: 8 (cancelled one)
#Offers received: 3 - V10, V25, V50
Offer Accepted: V25
Other/Commentary: Cancelled one cb after receiving first offer, removed candidacy from two firms post-cb before hearing back. So that's 8 CB invites but only 7 cbs done - 2 rejections, 3 offers and 2 withdrawals.
