Do you all fly in and out a lot? Or do you try to stay in one city for a few days?

I’m guessing we have to wait until Monday.

I'm trying to group mine by city, but I'll probably be going to NY multiple times

Grouping by city is definitely ideal. Just pick a host firm and book the whole stay through them (one night per firm + airfare). See http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/v ... 3&t=161018

Don't group unless it works out that way. Take the first available CB slot, even if that means you have CBs in the same city M/W/F and are doing three round-trip flights. The earlier the CB is, the more likely you will get an offer. Most of the firms have weekly hiring meetings, and it is almost impossible to quantify how much better position you will be in with the last CB before the meeting vs. the first one for the next week's meeting. Bonus: You can rack up frequent flier miles for personal use.

I interviewed with just one of these firms - haven't heard back.

Oddly slow for NY, though it's not been that long. Other cities seem to be slower.
