I am not ready to accent an offer yet.  I still have to hear from 3 firms(none in that city).   So does that suggest i should go since i cannot yet accept an offer?

2L job search / canceling a callback
« on: October 18, 2008, 02:59:11 PM »
So i have a callback on Tuesday in a city and with a firm that i am no longer interested in.  Should i go on the callback?  I made the plane reservations(no hotel) last weeks before i came to the conclusion that i do not want to be in that city,  so i feel a little like a male private part for wanting to cancel, but it seems like a waste of money if i would not accept an offer with the firm.   

Any advice on whether i should go or cancel on monday morning?

You're ugly.  HTH.

Probably, but law students and lawyers tend to be pretty homely in general, particularly ones at big law firms.  I would think that i would fit right in  ;D

5 outstanding(1 two weeks since callback, another 8 days since callback, 3 less than a week since callback).  5+ rejections, 4 interviews to go...all v100 firms if that matters at all...

So, I am faring a lot worse than the OP is and I don't know why.  I'm at a top30 school, law review, top 10%.  All of my callbacks(5+) interviews have gone well, no real mistakes that i can tell, and I have nothing to show for it.  By the way the firms are running away from me, i almost feel like my background check must be coming back with a report that I am a child molester.

Most of my interviews tend to run over the 20-30 time allotment, the conversations are engaging(at least i feel that they are), and there has been no awkward responses or silence.  I am interviewing in cities that I have strong connections to and always do a lot of research on the firm/interviewer.

So what gives?  I guess i am "that guy" that brings down the callback-to-offer ratio.  I am waiting to hear back from 5 firms and still have 4 more to go, but I am getting really worried at this point.

What about callback interviews?

There are two firms that I have not heard from either way.   Now that i'm outside the time frame that they gave me to hear back, should I call or email the recruiting coordinator?  Or leave it be?

Law Firms / Re: which firms get most of Lehman's business?

Weil is going to be hit hard by this?  I know they are covering their bankruptcy, but how much of weil's business depends on Lehmans?

Should i bring one copy of every document(references, resume, writing sample, and cover letter) for each person i will be interviewing with at a callback or one set per firm?
