Do people do two cbs at two firms on the same day?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Aug 11, 2017 2:14 pm

I just got a cb invitation over the phone from my dream firm, but the next two weeks will be almost 80% packed with cbs with other firms (I only scheduled one cb each day). I saw people here saying having cbs in the week starting August 21 would be considered too late. I was wondering, is it recommended to have two cbs on the same day, especially if one of them is for my dream firm? If not, I am afraid I can only do a cb with them on August 25 or even later. I cannot cancel any cbs now because i haven't received any offers yet.

I did one last week, was tired but went well. I think if you want a job that requires the hours like biglaw this shouldn't be too much of a stretch. Just do prep for both before.

I have note cards, then try to have at least an hour in between to review for second firm

Could have gone without the first 75% of your post. Was the purpose of this thread to ask for advice, or to brag that you received 8+ callbacks? Seems more like the latter.

this comment is fine but don't use anon to make it.

I guess I was still in a very talkative mode right after forcing myself into that mode during some interviews. Indeed too much detail can be distracting. I have modified the original post.
