Anyone else gearing up for a mass mailing campaign? I've got everything ready to go for my home market and I'm currently starting to look at other close by markets.

76% got jobs last year, I assume it will be closer to 85% this year and firms do rolling callbacks so all hope is not lost yet, give it a couple of weeks.....that being said I did not feel like this year was better than last year, of the CB's I receive I felt it was based on luck more than anything, I also feel like firms think because of ITE they can give callbacks only to those with a bunch of H's or LR, best advice I can give to Harvard 1L's is study your butt off, nobody cares about personality only H's!

I think Harvard OCS is great, they can't control the economy and if you don't get a job you can't really fault them. I do fault OCS for not being "realistic" with regard to bidding because a whole lot of us bid on firms we had no chance at, while skipping over those firms that would want us, especially the NYC firms. I also was a bit annoyed seeing people who made law review doing screeners with Stroock and Kaye Scholer, you know you're not working there so why take away someone else's potential callback? But I guess they earned that right....

False.

8 CBs 1 rejection on 20 interviews to this point, and I'm lucky if I'm top 1/3rd.
