...but it might take a while. There are some firms that are horrendously slow at post-screener dings. (Reed Smith comes to mind.)

White & Case: why would you spend the whole screener on substantive legal questions? you’re a below median firm, why set us up for failure?

Paul Hasting chicago is suspiciously white even for big law, lacking any blacks or Hispanics. Guess I didnt fit the culture guys? But hey Paul Hasting is a top firm for diversity according to vault so it has to just be the fit.

jones day: why did you boast avout how awesome and compeltely opaque your pay scale was for 5 minutes when asked about the most unique part of your firm. theres no way it helps client relations like you said. maybe dont talk about the subject of your discrimination lawsuit in interviews. it makes things awkward

I've had this same problem. Had 19 OCI interviews. 1 CB, 1 ding, 17 of just pure silence (given a few were today, so I'll cut them some slack). These firms are being pretty damn lazy. It's especially bizarre to me when I'm getting a lot of really positive feedback while interviewing like "that was a great response" or "you've got a great personality." I must just not understand interviewing very well :lol:

If this is the case then I really wouldn't worry if I were you (especially if you had some of them today)! Some markets just tend to take more time initially to pool more applicants before making CBs. Or, on the flip side, you may be receiving a lot of mail mail in the near future? :? Either way, it's great to hear that your interviewers seem to like your responses. Even if you don't come away with the results you wanted, you should be proud of that!

Cadwalader apparently has a new strategy to filter applicants by asking them where their firm ranks in students' bid lists
