I wonder why people get dinged though. i thought the formula was URM+t14/t20=acceptance
I assume the firms get some kind of say in who they choose. And while there aren't a lot of URMs at T14s, there are still more than 90 which I think historically has been the number of slots, so someone has to get rejected. WE, GPA, Undergrad prestiege... anything could go into it.
Plus if you pick, for example, Chicago and DC which have ~20/25 slots between the two, with Chicago having like 4 max, then your chances are smaller than picking NYC and DC.
In my interview I was told that firms dont have a say in what interns they get. They do however get to say which schools they would be willing to take interns from.
