Not OP but I emailed the recruiting contact and heard back about a screener ~2 weeks later

Top 5% lower T14. More than a week to hear back.

Anyone have advice on what timeline is appropriate for submitting expense reimbursements from callbacks?

No reason not to send them immediately.

any new round of offers from STB yet? (putting aside what they said about not giving out offers until after OCI)

my callback was on 7/11, so seems like I interviewed right around the time the last wave of offers was rolled out.

do we have a sense of when the hiring committee would meet again?

I had a callback for a non-NY office this week and heard 5-7 business days, not sure how broadly applicable that is though.

Have a CB tomorrow and one of the partners I'm interviewing with was also the partner who did my screener. Is this normal? If so, what's the logic behind repeat interviewing?

Not abnormal I think. I met with one of the associates I did a screener with again at call back. They probably want more time to talk to you, since screener is so short.

I have an interview coming up, but I didn't receive any information about who I'm interviewing with, how long it is anticipated to be, where to go when I get to the firm, etc. Is it proper to send an email asking for some/all of this info?

Sure, just word it as "is there anything else I should know in advance of my interview?"

Generally you get this info a day or two before the interview. I'd probably hold off on sending anything until noonish the day before.

ugh i dunno. i always thought the consensus was none, but then someone above said to do it. I did it for one so far and got an offer, didn't do it for another and haven't heard back. i don't think that means anything, but now I'm doing them. I'm trying to make them as least boilerplate as possible, which is taking a while...


My impression has been that thank-you notes don't matter at all because by the time you write them, the attorney has already filled out your evaluation. However, I would strongly caution the "what can it do to benefit me?" mindset. Sometimes we do things for other people, not because it will result in a tangible benefit to ourselves, (or our job prospects), but simply because it is the right thing to do. I feel this way about thank-you notes.

Adding on to this, I think the general politeness aspect is particularly worth considering if you're interviewing in a small secondary market. Even if you don't get the job, it's always great to build professional relationships (and even more so in a small market where you're likely to bump into each other in the future). I was pleasantly surprised by the number of very friendly/open responses I received from attorneys to whom I've sent thank-you notes :D

yep, fwiw i did it and got a very kind, immediate response from one of the people I interviewed with. just wasn't sure b/c the night prior someone in recruiting at another firm explicitly said not to, but i think he was referring more to oci screeners.
