Question:
I'm a third-year litigator and it's been one week since I interviewed with a firm. I think everything went very well; even the head of the group was telling me how qualified I am. However, when I sent thank-you emails nobody responded. It's a week later and I'm assuming the worst. My husband tells me I'm being a pessimist. What's your thought?
