I'm beginning to really freak out... and can't figure out what I've done wrong to try and fix for the future interviews.
Someone on the MoFo thread went 1 for 7. A friend of mine last year was 1 for 10, but that was last year and ITE happened in the middle of callback season.
My guess is that you haven't done anything wrong - first of all, you haven't heard from most of your firms, so it's premature to worry. Second, you got all those callbacks in the first place, and while it could have been mostly because of your grades, your interviewing skills probably aren't subpar and you probably didn't express interest in the non-hiring practice groups.
I was in the 1 ding - 0 offers group last week and started freaking out. Fortunately, I got an offer the next day. Probably no amount of advice could have stopped me from worrying the night before, though! That said, it wouldn't hurt to start some PI/gov't/small law applications in case it looks like you might need to use them, and it might be a good way just to ease some anxiety to remember that you have other options. I think you'll be fine, though.
