I got my #1-#8.
My other two were #16 and #32.
Edit: And no, I didn't put in class conflicts that would explain such a steep drop off in availability.

Ah, I am more of a fan of Phase 1.

I know someone last year who bid all DC and only got 6 interviews. Then they released class schedules and the registrar automatically dropped him from 4 of his interviews... so he only had 2 interviews. Career Services didn't help him out at all by giving him spots that other people dropped out of or giving him priority in last-minute lotteries or anything. We also don't let people record classes because of callbacks, and we don't have a callback week.

I was also told I had a really good resume. So I think that having a good resume gets them interested, and then having law review tells them that you can do the work.

I know this is nitpicking, but by good resume do you mean something legal related like being a paralegal at a big firm or having a prestigious summer internship? I'm often told I have an interesting resume, but that doesn't necessarily translate to "good."
I guess it's time to quit being paranoid and move onward!

Anonymous User wrote:Just wanted to note that people with all Ps *have* gotten offers in biglaw, both last year and this year (for people who interviewed early outside of OCIP in other locations). It is not impossible. In fact, biglaw is a serious reality for people with all Ps who take the initiative to interview outside of OCIP. I'd say PM me for specifics, but I am remaining anonymous.
