Ouch. Not that long ago top 1/3 at MVP would do pretty well at OCI. DC must be a bloodbath this year. Sorry bro.

CR. Plus this guy busted his ass in UG to get an engineering degree... little tougher than women and gender studies. I'd say he's fully deserving.

I don't actually hate IP people. Just the tiniest bit jealous. Still, thats really good news if thats not over performing stats for median. I mean, hell I'd feel lucky to get those offers in NYC but I thought that DC was INSANE for median.

What is the general consensus on median people at MVP? Does anyone have secondhand stories? I'm not sure if that would be hijacking the tread, but I was just curious.

I've spoken to some classmates who have nothing at median and above it, and some with multiple offers. As someone pointed out, this thread needs more median responses.

Well, I'm top 1/3 at MVP and don't have a single offer. That being said, I have some friends at or around medium with multiple offers (including some very prestigious firms).

Most people I know with median grades at V have had 4-5 callbacks. So 6 is nothing out of the ordinary.

Well its not hard to be a good interviewer when all you have to do is keep up the convo for 20-30 min. I did over 30 screeners and was asked maybe 2-3 "hard" interview questions.

but on a scale from 1-10, a 9 would be Bill Clinton and a 10 would be... George Clooney. Sigh.
