If Ropes hasn’t gotten back to me yet after Tuesday cB, then does not mean I’m on hold? Darn because I really wanted them.

Quick question: I received an offer from a NYC law firm, but more and more I'm realizing that I want to be in San Francisco (I have ties there as well). How awkward/successful would I be if I essentially said to the NYC office, "Thanks for the offer, but can I interview with your SF office?"

Does not hearing back from Ropes mean it’s the end? Others received offers already but I haven’t heard anything yet.....

Do you mind sharing your school/gpa? You're the only W&C NY offer I've heard so far.

Really disappointed I haven't heard. I LOVED them.


CB last Tuesday, and I was told the same thing. Reached out to one of the rising 3Ls who summered there and she said it took about two weeks for her to hear back, and one of the attorneys I interviewed with mentioned that the hiring committee doesn't always meet every week. So I wouldn't lose hope at all.

Also I feel you - those offices are STUNNING.


Thank you! You’re helping me keep a smal glimmer of hope alive. Have you heard back from them yet?


Nope!


Any updates? Have you heard anything?

Bad move. Offices are usually on different tracks and getting into one office doesn't mean you'll have an "in" with the other; the most they would probably do is pass your resume along. You may as well think of them as different firms, usually. It would also show that you're not that interested in the office you got the offer in - I don't know how often they rescind offers, but they can.

Also, from experience, San Francisco is very hard to break into. You need a top GPA from a top school, even with strong ties. The fact that you got into the NYC office doesn't mean at all that you can get into their San Francisco office. If anything, I would just apply directly instead of asking someone in the NYC office to hook you up.

Quickest is 2 days, but if you had your CB later in the week, it can take until the weekend or the following Monday
I had my callbacks on Wednesday afternoon and got my offer the following Monday afternoon
