Yes, one of the above has made offers, but I don't want to specify and out myself because I'm pretty sure I was the one of, if not the, first offer and it was relatively recent. Sorry for the vagueness.

Appreciate the response! Would you mind saying if it's one of the 2 TX-based firms or one of the 2 national firms? If you don't feel comfortable saying, I still thank you for the info.

UT grades aren't out yet, correct?


No, UT grades will be released on the 12th.

Dinged (had a callback) after letting them know about an expiring offer from another Houston firm. Know of at least one person who got an offer from NRF Hou last week.

I'm YHS, no ties, no grades

If I have an offer but other firms are waiting for grades (which may come out at the end of the month), should I update those firms and let them know that I have an offer pending?

I think it’s generally considered fine to update other firms when you have another offer with a hard expiration date.



Has anyone been offered an interview with Haynes & Boone Dallas yet?

Should see a lot of movement this week. UT and a few T13s have released grades, so firms should know where the vast majority of candidates stand by now.

Does anyone have advice on how to approach negotiating with a firm about splitting? Some programs appear to have a "us first" type of rule, or their summer program ends really early (early July instead of late July).

Anyone hear from HayBoo or McKool Smith Dallas? Haven’t heard anything since getting confirmation they’ve received my grades. Wondering if anyone has interviewed with either firm.
