Does anyone have any insight on whether there is a benefit to going to firm's mass interview sessions/cocktail parties over normal interview/lunch callbacks?

Are the lunch portions of the callback more personal and about shooting the *&^%?  Or should i expect to still get grilled while eating?

Yeah, that is what I was wondering.  Thanks.

One more question.  How important is it to have a callback early in the callback interview season?  Are decisions made on a rolling basis?  And is mid to late september considered early, middle or late?

Thanks!

Is there any difference between normal callback interviews and callback nights where the firm hosts a cocktail party?  Would the callback night be more likely to result in an offer?  It seems that if you order your schedule around them, and not vice versa, it would show that you're more interested in the firm.

Am i overthinking this?

are callbacks usually scheduled during the business week?  It seems that law offices have lawyers working 7 days a week, i was curious if any call backs were scheduled for the weekends.  That would allow me to do several call backs during one trip to NYC...

I got an email from a firm i am very keen on interviewing with that basically said "thank you for your resume.  We are very impressed with your credentials and want to know what ties you have to the offices you listed."  Does that sound like they will be inviting me down for an interview if they find my ties to the office(s) to be sufficient?  This was a firm i sent a copy of my resume to on my own because they do not interview on campus.  Good sign?


Thanks!

If i plan to make a visit in the very near future to the area, is it acceptable to send an email to the legal recruiter and let them know?

Yes. This is information that should be included in a cover letter if you know when you're writing. Otherwise, let them know (or, if you did, follow up a few weeks before your visit if you haven't heard anything.). Make sure you do this at least a few weeks before your visit, if you can.

Well, i sent my application about two weeks ago and have not heard back yet.  I plan to visit the area in about two and a half weeks.  I figure that if I plan to let them know, I should do it sooner than later.  Is email an acceptable method?  It feels so informal, but snail mail would be short notice...


thanks for the info!
