Isn't White and Case the one that had under "Employer Notes" something about you having to be on law review? That kind of made me hate them right there. There are legit reasons for some people to not be on law review; it's not all just didn't get picked / lazy.
I like you whoever you are OP Anon. I hope you get more callbacks (and/or offers from the places you've already gotten callbacks if those are your preferred firms). The five that rejected you aren't good enough for you anyway! <3
Thanks for the support; I could certainly use it. I'm on a journal, so I think that's enough for W&C, but who knows?
Hi anon - I'm sorry your week didn't go well. EIP really sucks.
One thing I was going to potentially suggest is - have you talked to OCS about telling the firms where you're called back that they're your top choice? I had a convo with them (regarding screener interviews) and they were like "that definitely helps, just don't say it to anyone else." I ended up getting a cb from that firm despite being arguably under qualified and striking out at other similar firms (and firms I thought were "safe" for me). Of course, don't say this if it isn't true, but it might be a good way to increase your chances of converting a cb to an offer.
In three callbacks, is there one that you particularly favor? Maybe OCS can work with you to come up with a polite/tactful way to make it clear in interviews (e.g. If you feel like the cb is going well, mention something like "if I were offered the opportunity to learn more about your firm/work for your firm next summer/etc. I would certainly take it, because I really love firm X").
