Got the Bryan Cave ding email yesterday. I know one person who got a callback. Still waiting to hear from Cadwalader.

How long is it typical to wait without a ding or a callback until you need to give up hope?

IKR? Sucks not knowing how long I should wait. I'm basically thinking I didn't make any callbacks last week and most people I know who got callbacks have them starting Monday...so I've essentially given up.

My experience is that firms usually let you know that they're extending you a callback within 24 hours. Not receiving any news is generally bad news.

While this may be anecdotal, I interviewed with a firm on Monday and got a callback on Friday.

What if people got rejections but you just haven't heard anything?

Wow. I guess people have heard back from everywhere I interviewed by now. Seriously going to start having the drop-out conversation.

Good call. If you're not part of the 30% of the class who gets a job through OCI you'll be hopelessly unemployed for the rest of your life so just give up.

Well fuck. It's looking like I'm 2/19. I haven't gotten rejection emails from firms that seem to be sending them out so I don't know what that means.

If one of those firms is Dechert, I believe you're looking at a snailmail ding.

Nah. A lot of the ones I haven't heard anything back from have been sending out rejection emails.
