I heard that at last year's OCI people came out with 0 CB's but then got 2-3 the following week. Don't give up hope.

My buddy had 6 CBs last year, most of which came a week later.

This coming week should be make or break.

Yeah, but I'd imagine that he probably wasn't targeting NYC. Sadness.

Have you received any rejections yet? With that average, NY should be a very real option for you. Best of luck to you either way.

I wonder if anyone has any suggestions on what to do to prepare for a CB when you realize that no one from UChi worked there last year? I wanted to email a rising 3L to pick up some tips but I'm stymied on what to do now that I've realized no one worked at that particular V50 this summer.

Good suggestion. I wish my CB wasn't on Wednesday. I don't think I'll have the time to exchange meaningful emails with anyone at this point.

Hmmm, so this is the first evidence we have of a second wave callback.
