In 2007, I was 7/22 regarding callbacks. I was top 20% at a top 20 school at the time.  Just wanted to set a reference point.

I am 8/21 at my T20-ish.  For the sake of full disclosure, two of those callbacks aren't Vault (but one of those two is AmLaw 100).


Maybe it's because I'm a sore loser (didn't get in), but it really is cute to watch the Vandy kids troll for their ranking.  When I hear Vandy/USC/UCLA, I think T20.  When I hear "T15," I think here's a Vandy student who wants to quibble about the USNWR.


Just out of curiosity, if you don't mind sharing, what is your rank?

10%.  People outside that segment aren't having the same success, of course (and unfortunately).  But a fair number of 15-25% types have a callback or two (eta: or more, come to think of it, for the people who are within a stone's throw of the 10% mark).


Nice!  Congratulations on your success.  What I'm finding to be true is that grades, more so than in the past, are the cut-off.  Granted, I'm a transfer student so I don't technically have a "rank," but in the past, if a transfer student had 18 interviews, he would normally get about 6-8 call-backs. 

I hope 3L recruiting is better for all of us who don't get anything.

Oh, and for those 3Ls doing OCI again, last year I was 1/9 during OCI (about 5 were Vault top 10 firms and the others were Vault top 30 firms).  But, words of encouragement, the one callback turned into an offer.  I guess the CDO is correct when they say all you need is one interview, one callback and one offer.

18 interviews, 0 callbacks.  Thanks for rubbing it in.

Wally, no offense, but I'm not surprised you bageled OCI.

Well, aren't you just a little a-hole.

Just responding in kind to Wally's general a-holeishness. That's all.

How does over-anxiety and a lack of social graces = a-hole?
