1) 6 interviews gives you a real shot at a callback, why throw that away?
2) Don't bid on firms on the other side of the country where you have no connections at OCI.
I'm not sure if 6 interviews is worth the money to go. I should clarify that I do have connections in one of the places I applied.
I have 4 OCI-style opportunities. Many of the firms attending the Loyal Patent Fair are coming to one of the 3 other interview programs/OCI available to me. I ultimately chose to apply primarily to firms that I would not have access to via the other interview opportunities.
3) You can check the resume you submitted on the Symplicity page. Why didn't you fix it? Don't do that at OCI either. Especially since you can go to the reception and network your ass off.
I just didn't notice it. I'm usually very detailed.
Very real possibility that 6 interviews is more than you'll get at OCI if your T50 allows pre-screening, which almost all do. Don't turn down the opportunity.
I'm quite confident I will get significantly more than that. I'm in a rather unique, or perhaps weird, situation that gives me some reasonable basis to speculate on my situation at OCI.
