My guesstimate from speaking to people is that if you exclude the top 10%, URMs, and IP folks, the median number of callbacks is about 2.
Top 10%, URMs, and IP folks seem to be getting 6-10+
What is it with the URM thing? Why do people act like being URM is a golden ticket for getting hired? I have never heard of being black/latino/native american being a boost for anything other than admission purposes. Since when in the hell is it a boost to be a minority when getting a job? Is this just TLS speculation based on the existence of things like diversity career fairs etc? Because the hard data seems to point to the opposite of what people are saying. I doubt firms are clamoring to hire URMS in the bottom half of their classes.
firms are often forced to hire URMs because their of pressure from their clients
So does part of the contract with the clients include a " fire them before they make partner" clause too?
