honestly who cares if it's legit. no one should actually expect to get a callback from Wachtell.

below median: 2, but still waiting to hear back from about 20 firms

luckily they are both some of my top choices. surprisingly, one of them has a median offer GPA of over 3.6 :shock:

FWIW firms usually have a median offer GPA that's higher than their actual employment GPA. Many firms offer to high GPA candidates knowing that they won't get all of them. Many high GPA candidates have several offers and can only pick one. It inflates the median offer GPA over the median GPA of actual incoming SAs.

Hoping I hear back from other firms eventually, even if it takes other candidates rejecting

Do CBs ever come on Saturdays (for Thursday interviews)? Or do you usually need to wait until Monday (if they come at all)?
