They can take their time. No news is good-ish news.

Nothing typical. LA is slower than NY.

How many attorneys do you normally meet for CB's? I have 1 CB (NY, not Cali) where I'm only meeting 3 attorneys and no lunch. Is that the norm?

Seems odd. Usually four attorneys and then a two attorney lunch/dinner.

Same here. Interviewed with a CA firm during the "afternoon session," where only 3 attorneys interviewed me and 2 others met with me after to talk more about my interview experience. Is this normal?

Is the CA/Bay Area market slow, or, are offers coming out and I'm just not getting any? Callbacks from last week but still waiting.

Same here. It feels like the Bay Area specifically -- other markets seem to be turning around offers more quickly. Has anyone gotten offers from Fenwick/WSGR/Orrick?

Does 2L vs 3L matter for these firms? I guess I can see Quinn being more likely to hire a 3L

You are correct--matters for Quinn. I guess not for Goodwin.

Got a CB but not for a CA office. They were only interviewing for DC at OCI.
