Sigh.

At my former school, all OCS would do is suggest changes to your resume, only to change it back again when you came back with the revised copy; oh yeah, they'd also offer the advice to "go network." Here, they've actually given me substantive advice. So long way to say, it could be much, much worse.


You'll learn. They are awful. That is what they do here too. Or they suggest a change, then later call your resume w/changes "garbage." Even firms have said they hate dealing with Paul Woo.

I feel that - about 10 LA firms, no CBs. Fail.

I'm joining the no callbacks party. NOT EVEN ONE. I even punched a pillow today.

Bright side is only three dings so far but it is hardly any consolation.

so my OCI season is pretty much over. Recap:

178.4 GPA (no prior work experience, but a solid resume and good interview skills)

CBs (Chicago office unless noted):

Winston
McDermott
Schiff Hardin
Katten Muchin
Baker McKenzie
Dechert (non-Chicago)
And 3 other CBs from firms in a secondary market that will go unnamed (1 through OCI, 2 non-OCI)

Dings:
Sidley
Jenner
Mayer
Skadden
Locke Lord


I'm generally satisfied but was expecting to get at least one CB from a major Chicago player (Sidley, Latham, Jenner, Mayer, etc.)
