Did anyone with a GPA between about 3.5 and 3.7 have much luck with OCI for Chicago firms?

I'm pretty much right in the middle of that range and only bid on Chicago firms. I had 10 OCI interviews, 9 callbacks.

Above that range by a minuscule amount. 16 oci interviews resulting in 9 callbacks, but one interview resulted in callbacks to two cities of the same firm. Also got one from a resume drop. I also did not target Chicago. Non-ip.

I was surprised to learn that among Chicago litigation big law firms, Sidley is band 2. Is this weird to anyone? Is Sidley really a band 2 firm? I always thought it was the premier Chicago litigation big law firm, until I saw this.

Makes me have second thoughts about "Chambers"
