Rolling offers/scheduling callbacks

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Sep 07, 2009 4:01 am

anyone have anecdotal sense of who is doing rolling offers (not cb offers, but offers), and who is waiting?

Relatedly, what's consensus on how far you shoudl schedule out callbacks? Bad idea to schedule two weeks out if you're otherwise already full and don't want to miss class? Or do I just miss class?

Very fortunate and grateful to have several cbs, but no offer yet... Because of the random order in which I am getting them, the ones I really like are now towards the end and I'm really skittish about waiting that long, ITE, and in light of these rolling offers I keep hearing about...

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I can't tell you about offers because my first callback interview is tomorrow. I can tell you that I am much more willing to miss class than to schedule callbacks too far in advance. I'm already planning to miss the first two days of class due to an LA callback and I don't think my professors are going to care/blame me. I'll be emailing to let them know, but I dont expect problems.

All offices? Good to know... Was it on the spot or a few days later? (Interviewing with them next week)

The LA office gave my friend an offer on the spot.

I don't think firms are enamored with the t-14 like this board is. The kids getting offers seem to be those who are well-rounded, having stellar grades, strong resume/WE, and solid interviewers. Kids near the median at t-6 schools are not seeing a lot of love, and same seems to be true for t-14 who aren't in the t10%. I'm surprised at the # of kids at my t-20 who have offers when I see wats happening to lots of kids who did well at MVP and DCNG.

I'd have to disagree with your statement (depending on what you consider doing well). From what I've seen, as long as you are top third you're getting at least 4-5 callbacks with those in the top 10% getting 10+ calls. It seems that its people at and below median who are having trouble.

OP here. Thanks for the replies thus far. I'm conflicted as to whether to start missing class for these. I just want to get them over with, and our school's OCI was a bit later in the game, so I feel at a disadvantage.

Some places like Jones day, told me that they are scheduling callbacks within a three or four week block and that's it... if such a block exists at other places, I'm hitting the tail end of the block, and I'm going to be end meat...
