Is it acceptable to apply to this job fair if I am NOT a minority applicant? I am just somebody who wants to come home to practice.

Not a minority in any way? I've seen white women and white gay men apply. But straight white male? But on the other hand how would they know you're straight if you don't tell them?

Also, for what it's worth, last year I was above median but below top third and I got interviews here. Also, apparently, plenty of BU (and probs BC) students without top grades get PLENTY of interviews here, but relatively few offers. But it's good practice and I know people who've gone on to interview with the same firm twice, once at BLG job fair and once at OCI and managed to get the job at OCI after missing out at BLG.

You all might as well apply and see what you get. I have no idea how they'd feel about someone with no ties to Boston from a Canadian school.
