Heard of 2 Gibson LA offers and 1 Sidley LA offer.

Do Gibson, Sidley, and Milbank hand out dings post callback? Or will they just leave us hanging forever.

Screeners -> Radio silence

Out of 11 firms, only two sent rejections (one via email one via snail mail).

What to make out of the other 9? Haven't heard of any offers in this thread or c'bs from them.

When did you interview? Rejections can take well over a week to start trickling in

Do firms (90% of the time) send out rejections if they do reject. Or could radio silence be a form of rejection?

I know a 3L got a rejection from a firm s/he applied to a year ago. I don't have a clue as to what the norms are, but my assumption is that firms would inform you of the rejection.

If it's been over a week from all my callbacks and I haven't heard good or bad news, is it safe to presume I'm on like a waiting list type thing and most likely not getting a job ?

Congrats. What department? Mind sharing a bit about your academic profile (e.g., LR, top 10% or what not)

Corporate, but they said they'd allow splitting between their corp/lit practices if I really wanted.

LR, probably top 25%-ish, Bay Area undergrad, PMVDN, worked in a non-technical role at a startup before law school

3/10 emails back from screeners, 7 of them radio silence.

Been two weeks.

Some have said that 5 out of the 7 firms with radio silence have dinged people.

Is radio silence good then or was I just forgotten?
