UofA/ASU Fall 2009 OCI

Postby sanpiero » Wed Feb 10, 2010 4:35 pm

Can anyone weigh in on how OCI went at either of these schools this past fall?

-Number of firms
-Number of large firms
-Percentage PHX firms
-Percentage of class landing SAs
-Class rank cut-offs established by larger firms
-etc.

Even the T14s haven't put out any real info on how Fall 2009 OCI went, yet. You're only going to get anecdotal evidence.

FWIW, I know someone who was top 10% at ASU and did not get anything from OCI. I would count on fewer than 5% of students from ASU getting jobs with big firms. Maybe slightly more from UofA, but I'd guess still well under 10%.

I'd ballpark Phoenix big firm recruitment at about 1/3 of what it was two years ago. Things aren't pretty, man.

Yea, that's what I was looking for, anecdotal evidence.

Interesting. I know there are only 4-6 "big" firms that interview at the two schools, so your figures make sense. I was also interested to hear to what extent the medium sized firms in PHX and Tucson were interviewing and offering.

I'd say there are more like 10-15 big firms. Depends how loosely you use the term.

Friend on Arizona's LR (just got on Exec Board for next year) didn't get anything at OCI, and several others didn't either. With that said, he devoted a lot of his efforts to contacting SF area firms, but a good amount of LR also failed to land any big law offers in Phoenix.
