I'm in the same situation. Not sure what to make of it. Some people who interviewed around that time have already reported getting dinged. I don't see why they would just trickle those out, so it seems like maybe no news is good news? not sure what the delay is all about though. any ideas?


The previous PW 7/14 cb anon here. I was relatively optimistic until I searched on this forum and found that in previous years PW cb -> offer turnaround time was pretty short, like within 3-5 days. Maybe those in the PW ding group yesterday interviewed for a different practice group compared to us, and each practice group has its own way of sending out dings?

second anon here. I was feeling optimistic as well. Now just confused. A week seemed to be the normal timeline, so I was hoping to get a call last thurs/fri. I doubt they have different ways of hiring and dinging people. People who interviewed after us have gotten offers. I don't know if they have some kind of waitlist?

What are people doing about offer calls? I've been letting them go to voicemail and then following up with a thank you email. That ok?

My experience has been that folks won't give the offer in a VM (I thought that was the norm?) and just say "please call me back." But if they're making the offer in the VM then thank you email sounds fine...

Honestly, it's all tea leaves at this point so not really anything we can do other than keep grinding for a job and wait

Another previous anon with 7/14 PW CB. Still waiting as well. Maybe a round of rejections will come out soon?

Latham DC ding after CB last week.

Two dings in two days. No better way to boost my confidence going into OCI than two solid rejections.

Keep at it anon. Stay positive and confident. Take advantage of having this experience before OCI - meet with career services for a mock interview, do a mock interview with an upperclassmen who is still in your law school city, refine your "stock" answers, probe for better questions. You got this!

Had a screener two weeks ago and was told that they would get back to me with a decision on my candidacy after my school's OCI. Thought this was strange - seems like the kind of thing they would tell someone after a CB, no?

Had the same feeling, but why not just ding us now?
