Anyone else think that fly-out week should be about two weeks earlier?

Any other Covington DC news?


I was wondering the same thing and called my references. They were never contacted by anyone from any firm--I guess that's a ding.

I always assumed I'd be going the public interest route - I chose HLS over SLS mainly because of the PSI thing. But, I also thought maybe, just maybe, I could be swayed to firm life, if it was cool enough. So, I took OCS's advice and applied even though I wasn't sure.

Tons of rejections later, and I hate OCS. I would be more happy with my life generally if I hadn't applied at all. Now, I know I didn't work terribly hard at EIP, unlike some people. But, still, it's ridiculous. OCS, if you're reading this, you suck. Never, ever, ever give that BS advice to anyone ever again. I wonder if OCS just does that to guarantee that interview slots are filled so as to increase firms' desire to pay the registration fees, which seem awfully high for a school that's supposedly concerned about the career prospects of its students...


While I definitely think OCS is far from the most effective career-service guide I've ever seen, I think their encouragement of us to participate in EIP was well-meaning. The private sector isn't for everybody. But the legal economy as a whole has suffered a lot, and that extends to the public sector as well. I think they promoted EIP so much in part so as to maximize the chances that everybody has some sort of job this summer.



I think the issue was that they weren't exactly forthcoming with how difficult some markets were to break into. I mean we had an 8 hour orientation for this bullshit, they could have mentioned that NY was way safer than anywhere else. And then after the fact, they've been of no help. They've told me its to early in the process to start panicking. So do I panic in the middle of October, when I have no job offer and everyone's summer class is already filled?

And furthermore, this shit is degrading an a real ego blow if you do poorly in the process. I mean I feel worthless and don't even want to start classes.


titcr. BURN DOWN THE SCHOOL. NO MOAR LIES.

Have you had any luck recently? I am in the same position, and am trying to figure out if I should keep calling...

So it's Wednesday and I'm still waiting to hear from a bunch.

10 CBs, 1 ding (made during CB week a day after interview), 11 pending.

Debevoise
Skadden
Boies
MTO
Keker
Locke Lord

Those are just a few of the pending, so it's not market or firm type specific.

Any idea why this is?

Edit: make that 2 dings, 10 pending (got one via email as soon as I hit submit)

Why? Are some firms just inefficient, or is it more wait-and-see?

Um, do some not report dings?

Plus, snail mail dings could take a while to get sorted.

Yeah, but with 29 pending between us, you'd figure we'd have heard from more by now.

Yeah. Another factor, of course, is that OCS says that some firms have a waitlist of sorts that they'll move to if our peers don't take up the CB. Shrug.

And, a few Thurs/Fri firms may not have done CBs at all yet. Who knows.
