Re: What's the typical timeframe between the calback and the offer?

I don't think there's really a "typical" timeframe anymore, thanks to the change in NALP rules.  Firms (at least mine) is giving out fewer offers at a time, and applicants are holding offers longer (until the end of the 45 day period) because they're waiting for other firms before releasing offers.  It seems to be causing a huge traffic jam.

I perhaps wouldn't get my hopes up, simply because it's kind of late in the game, and many firms are taking smaller classes.  I don't know that I'd assume the worst yet, either.  Offers are still going out as 45 day deadlines pass.

Hmm.  Thanks.. no mail today, so a little over two weeks.  Sent an email of continued interest over the weekend without a response.  It's just very interesting to me.  Two of my callbacks took 4 weeks to reject me, but they occurred very early in the cycle (September 1st-ish). 

Could it be a lot of firms are holding off on rejecting people in the event that other offers are rejected or the 45 days expire?



I've read a lot about that on these boards, but have yet to talk to a single person who it actually happened to them. (School or here). Though I'm sure there's an exception.

Xerofactor, any reply? I am in a similar situation with a NJ firm. Four weeks since call back, thank you sent immediately, follow-up continued interest e-mail 2 weeks later, with no response. I am pouncing at the mailbox...at lease have the decency to give a rejection.
