Mid T14 is an unhelpful answer. Congrats on the offer.

Might as well, no one will ever scoff at you sending one but some interviewers might wonder why you didn't send a thank you. By the time you send a thank you they've most likely already evaluated you, but can't hurt from a networking standpoint.

So I have an interview with a V20 firm, but it's just a lunch with 4 partners. What exactly is going on?

An interview. Lol. Mind your manners and be appropriately chatty and you'll be fine.

Paul Hastings DC is doing callbacks

Before y'all ask, didn't have an official screen. CB was through a connection made at a networking event

I doubt anyone on this board is one of the partners, so no one here will have a good answer for you. Even if we could tell you, should it really change the way you approach it?

FWIW, I had a similar situation come up last week, and it turned out to be a screener.

Nope, but then again it's not even noon on a Monday.

Did you ask the recruiting people when we are supposed to know the decision. Had my cb on Tuesday.

Are you sure it's not lunch AND interviews with four partners? Because that sounds like a pretty normal callback. It's also possible that they're consolidating everything into one lunch but that would be slightly unusual.

Got email from STB today saying not to expect decisions until OCI or after. Interviewed 7/12. Just outside of top 10% at lower T13, on LR.

Soft ding?

Wouldn't read into it that much. Have friends who interviewed before you and were informed by recruiting that they may well wait until after OCI.
