HR asked if I have time for phone call later today… 2 days after superday, good or bad?

Before everyone just tells me to just simply wait, this was my first ever superday and I honestly felt great about it but I was iffy since the rest of the people in my super day were SOLID (super target schools, etc)

Do they usually give rejection calls 2 days later? I am manifesting that offer call but just curious on how it usually works?

Not true at all. I've had superdays with EBs that explicitly told us they're taking 2 out of the 10

This doesn't disagree with what I said. I said they're not necessarily zero sum games. This of course implies that they can be. It is also unlikely that everyone in a single superday gets through regardless of any quota but if there isn't a quota then it's possible.

Point wasn't to tell OP that he's gonna get an offer but to put into perspective that just because there were people (that he perceives to be) better than him, this doesn't mean he is not up to standard and cannot get through.

From what I have seen, these firms can be slow to give rejections especially over the phone (may prefer email) unless there is something special that requires a voice rejection or discussion. Good luck

Rejections are rare over the phone. It's more likely that the person they offered first didn't take it and now it's passing to you. Crossing my fingers for you! Let us know how it went.

Be excellent to each other, and party on, dudes.
