After a call back interview, generally how long does it take to hear back? If I interviewed on Monday, what would the normal time frame be for BIGLAW?
just to get an opinion from people:i had a callback about 2 1/2 weeks ago at a nyc biglaw firm and havent heard back from them yet. I checked my e-mail on friday and I had just received an invitation for a cocktail reception for "perspective 2008 summer associates" do you think this is something they send to all people who got callbacks? does this mean i have an offer and have not found out yet? should i call the firm and ask?
Some firms (particularly smaller offices) wait until they've done a certain number of callbacks to evaluate the candidates and give offers, particularly if they only have a few spaces available. It's very different from the big firms where they're filling a class of 50.
