Should I expect more callbacks?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Aug 16, 2017 1:38 pm

Top 15%-10% and LR at a UT/Vandy/UCLA. Less than a handful of callbacks, but all V-10's so I don't think I interviewed so horribly. I'm happy with my callbacks, but I'm worried that, given my grades, the number might indicate I interview badly or am unlikable, though I did some mock interviews that the interviewer described as going well. Any insight would be appreciated :)

You should keep hustling. I know kids at better schools with similar grades who went 0-12 on callbacks. A handful is not enough to feel comfortable with until you have an offer in hand.

I agree with sparky. Keep hitting the pavement until you have an offer in hand.

This is the wrong way to think about it. I'm not saying you won't be, OP. But don't assume anything and keep applying and networking until you have a concrete offer in hand.

I also have no idea why this comment is anon.
