It's Thursday night and I only have 1 CB so far in my home market. 9Ps and 1H (in an easy elective) and feeling dreadful. I bid a lot of less selective NY firms and so far no one has gotten back to me with a CB, with a few outright dings. Am I completely screwed? Anyone in a similar situation?

2H (international/comparative law and elective) & 8P conducted 20+ screeners (most for NY transaction). Received no CB and several dings.

20+ nyc firms, with the rest in my home market. I think I made a huge mistake bidding firms like Cleary, Kirkland, Skadden and Gibson, which I now realize I had no shot at. Interviewers there seemed to take one look at my transcript and dinging me right then. I also bid firms like Clifford, Cadwalader, Shearman (all dings), and Schulte, Hogan, Akin, STB, WhiteCase (all no answer). Is it time to start mass mailing? How do I even start that process? Am about to have a panic attack at this point.

What's the conventional wisdom on dings? Do most/all firms/offices provide them? If you haven't received a ding despite some people getting CBs from that office (or even interviewer), are you theoretically still in contention?

I only have 2 CBs so far and I’m looking exclusively in Boston. Should I be worried?
