The OCI Prep Tips Thread

Postby jchoggan » Mon Aug 02, 2010 9:37 pm

I figure it might be a good idea to discuss the little things that help (or hurt) during OCI. Things like the type of resume paper to use, ice breakers/jokes, business cards (if you have a job), answers to typical questions, weird questions you received, funny stories, etc.

I won't have much prepping to do since only four people are coming to the first round of OCI, and I am only applying to one. The beauty of TTTT.

I dunno what you are asking. One is not a law firm; it a legal services organization; another is JAG, and then we have a small law firm, and a really important one. I only applied to the important one, which has 13 spots available.
