Headhunter Questions

Confused IB analyst about to enter on-cycle here 

Have all the headhunters scheduled their meetings? If one has not reached out, does that mean im essentially "cut" already or just lower priority? Curious if people at the top firms have scheduled meetings with all the headhunters or if some have yet to reach out.

Did you just join? Know 10+ HHs reached out to 2nd years for intro meetings, not sure if they have for 1st years yet.

This was for CPI, but there weren't many time slots left when I booked. Maybe they paused online scheduling to deal w/ backlog
