Callback questions

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Aug 10, 2017 11:19 pm

T14 under median here. I got 11 callbacks, all New York, which I don't even know how it happened. Of those, a number of firms are definitely out of my reach considering my grades. I didn't schedule all yet, but do firms look at transcripts for callbacks? Should I just schedule callbacks for all of them and cancel the ones once I get one offer? My first callback is next week and it's with my dream firm that's definitely a reach. Not sure how realistic it is for me to receive a callback with subpar grades. Thanks

They wouldn't have given you a CB if your grades were below a hard floor that they have. They'll likely look at your transcript again, but at this point your grades are what they are. Walk into the room like you have a 4.0 and let the offers fall where the may.

As far as the offers go, only reject them once you have an offer you know you'd take over the other firm.
