Anyone hear anything from resume collect on symplicity? There are some really good firms on there, but I don't really know if resume collects ever turn into anything.

Done, over, finished.
Took a V20 offer back home, was my #1 firm going in and I couldn't be happier.
Good luck everyone else!

I've official struck out from OCI interviews, but managed to get a below market job through connections. So either :) or :( depending on how you want to look at it.

Above $60k but below $100k in the SF market. Enough to manage my loan payments, but not enough to marry my girlfriend. Is there a "meh" emoticon, cause that's how I'm feeling.

Joining the "officially struck out" club. I had five CBs, below median. Too bad, but I've already moved on and am pretending it isn't a self-esteem hit.

I'm in the struck out club myself. 3 callbacks, 3 rejections. Top 1/3. Must be a terrible interviewer.

Anyone actually receive a rejection from the DC offices of Baker Botts, Drinker Biddle, or Fried Frank? These are the last three I'm waiting on. It would be nice to just write off OCI, but I'm still building false hope.

I emailed BB to express my interest and they wrote back letting me know I was rejected.
