Boo!

I guess I can expect a nice rejection letter :) My interview with them was by no means great so it isn't a big surprise.

I have to admit, the lack of callbacks after doing so many interviews is unnerving.

I have done like 20+ interviews and haven't heard back at all. Meanwhile, some firms have already extended callbacks. I have not received rejections yet, so I hope I am on ice...

Don't work at Kirkland. It's a slave factory (OK they all are, but Kirkland really sucks).

Has Latham Chicago started calling back too? I know they sent out a bunch of rejections last week.

=/?? Why that face? For bottom half at a top 20, 1 callback is pretty dang good news.

Just look at the T14 guy that just posted. You should be happy as a clam.

Most of us at MVP are grateful for 1-2 callbacks if we are below median. I know quite a few in the top 1/4 or 1/3 still without CBs. I am technically doing better than my numbers would indicate, but until I get an actual offer I don't think my CBs mean anything.

Unfortunately, everyone is going to see the carnage in the next few weeks. Needless to say there is a lot of regret with sinking all this money into a nonexistent career. Even government/public interest will be very difficult to get this year.

It's not good news, perhaps it is expected news. Me not winning the lottery is expected, but I wouldn't call it good news, even if a guy who bought a thousand tickets also did not win.
