I'm almost positive they - and other Ropes & Gray offices - have dispensed offers. At least, I know Ropes & Gray NY did, about 2 weeks ago. I also believe that no Ropes & Gray offices have dinged anybody. Like literally not a single ding.

This is not true. One of my friends summered at Ropes Boston, and said there were at least a couple classmates that were no-offered; however, my friend said they were either ridiculous people or very lazy.

We're talking about callback offers for a summer associate job. Not actual offers for a full-time position after you've completed your summer stint.

Even ITE?


I would also like to know the answer to this (whether some firms are waiting 2 or more weeks to give offers).

Possibly off-topic Q:

What do you say/talk about when a firm that has offered you calls to see if you have any questions and you don't really have any? I'm waiting to finish off my interviews so I can get a feel for the different offices I visit, but this firm is probably one of my favorites so far. Do I just tell them that? If I had to commit today I probably could, but the firms I've been dealing with have not been pressuring me at all to make decisions...

I wonder if the V40+ are more likely to wait to give offers. The only firms that I've heard back from within 2 weeks of callback fell within the V30.

It definitely varies. I received an offer from a V50-V75 firm the next business day.

As a quick aside: what's with all the interest in Ropes? Is it simply due to the latest Vault rankings (e.g. best firms to work for)?

[Anonymous because I summered at Ropes. I really like the firm, but it was never this popular when I was interviewing.]
