Wrong thread for this. Use the search function or head to Chambers Associate, they list whether most firms allow a split.

Still super early in the game. There are plenty of good firms out there and no reason to let a rejection from one single one get you down. May I ask when you had your callback (week of is fine)?

Have any other people who interviewed late last week at PW heard back yet? It seems like their turnaround for offers post CB is fast, so this is feeling like a ding...or maybe i am just overreacting

it seems like people who interview later in the week aren't hearing until the following week. tough to say though.

Is this PW specific? CB 7/20 (different firm), have not heard back, not sure when to start being concerned

same. i interviewed there a while ago. it seems like they know some candidates are going to be an auto-admit, and then others are just kind of held onto until OCI starts to maybe compare you against your school?

For those who have received offers, do you know if the firm checked your references? One firm I had a CB with did not ask for a list of references, so I'm wondering whether they can even extend an offer without them. Appreciate any info!

pretty much same situation here. I was hoping to get some news late last week. Not sure when to start getting worried. Based on what was reported here, at least one person who interviewed even earlier that week was already dinged (Not sure if anybody knows if they tend to send all dings out from a given week out at once). On the other hand, at least one person interviewed the following week and was already given an offer. Not sure what to make of that for us folks who are stuck in between. Maybe hope for a call later? I suppose it's possible that you have an offer and the partner who is supposed to call just didn't get around to it.
