As an incoming 1L at Chicago, how was OCI this year. Any tips on how competitive it is? If you are below the median, is there still hope for Biglaw? Thanks for any tips you can provide.

why do people keep asking these questions? if someone who had heard from one of those firms were reading this thread, presumably they would already have posted about a callback. stop cluttering!

Munger had a dinner - dunno if they made cb's. I know of someone who got a K&E-DC & Boies-DC cb today.

K&E-chi and SA-chi seem pretty silent.

Relax. I know of a few firms via hearsay that have given some callbacks to my friends that I'm not posting. It's not clutter.
