Question - did you all additionally upload your materials to Nixon Peabody? Not sure if I should bother, since they are coming to my school's OCI.

I'm at BU, and this is how I feel about the BLG job fair. What's the point of trying for the same firms twice?

Well, I go to school outside New England, so most of the BLG firms aren't coming. I might not have done it if there was huge overlap. Although depending on your school's bidding system, it may help you get in front of more of them than you would otherwise?

Definitely.. but I think they have to make it so early because some of the Boston schools have their OCI really early. They might have trouble getting people out to the fair with recruiters and interviewees both prepping for OCIs.

mind sharing which Boston school have early OCI?

Im at Harvard. Our OCI (d/b/a EIP) orientation is August 10th. Nearly all the BLG firms come to HLS but the program will (hopefully) allow me to get in front of some firms that I am really interested in early and open up some EIP bids for other firms or more aggressive bidding.

Anyone have any inside information on whether the published timeline date of July 24th for preselects release is a hard date?

I guess the NP e-mail indicates that employers have at least started giving our materials a look.

So, that's why I got the email. For a moment, I was like why NP keeps sending email to ask me fill out their online application. :)

Forgive me for being an idiot, but on the Nixon Peabody app, where it asks about criminal offenses and there is a spot to click for "MA Applicants" -- that means applicants FROM Massachusetts, right?

Email from Wilmer about voluntary self-identification form. Does anyone know if not filling these out can hurt your chances?

Preliminary interview schedules will be posted on Symplicity on or around July 24, 2012. You will have an opportunity at that time, to review your schedule and accept or decline the interviews.

Students who are not accepted for any interviews will be notified on or around July 24, 2012.

From what I have heard about some other fairs we should consider ourselves lucky if we get our schedules tomorrow.

4 interviews and no ties on my resume at all. Surprised to say the least.
