All I ever learn from receptions is I have nothing in common with anyone in any age group.

Chicago always moves slower than NY. Nothing to worry about yet.

Are y’all actually receiving dings or are you just going off time elapsed? If the former, how are they coming in? Email?

Some firms (like Cravath) do actually reject by emails. Like we get emails saying they are not offering us a SA position.

Please don’t discuss callbacks loudly with each other. I have zero. Respect your classmates, I beg you.

They can be annoying but they deserve what they have. Just trust the process.

Wait... are you saying it’s a bad thing to be an asshole?

Callbacks, grades, salaries, etc. are really only things that should be discussed in private, if at all. That’s just basic social common sense.

ETA: Do trust the process though. It’s not over yet. If you don’t have any callbacks yet, hang in there and start networking and mass mailing asap, just in case.

Is the concept of waitlist true? Like lesser candidates getting callbacks when other people with offers reject?
