Chances of getting a callback after cold emailing partner who subsequently brought me to lunch with himself and another partner? Partner I emailed is very senior, chair of his group. He sent my app materials to the firm's attorney recruiting staff. Resume is solid, though I've never done BigLaw (govt enforcement for past year). GPA is below cut-off mark, FWIW. No relevant openings posted on their site. Non NYC/DC/Chicago/LA; one of Pittsburgh/Detroit/MSPL

depends on the firm's hiring practices and the partner's pull. if the partner told the recruiter, hire this kid I will give him work, sure there is no reason the recruiter would turn you down. if it was more like, I think this kid is a good candidate, but there is no immediate need in the firm, then it's more of a tossup.

I guess it doesn't matter what we call it

Subject: UPDATE #2

Recruiting director spoke candidly to me after scheduling my second interview and said, in response to my Q about what I should do after the second interview, "There's nothing you should do other than keep in touch. [Partner / pg chair] really likes you. It's just timing on opportunities."

Game Over?

Depends. Do you have credentials that actually qualify you to be hired by the firm? Or is this all just hoping that you show enough initiative to impress them.
