+1, given the anonymouses I've easily identified.

Looks like I can officially call a wrap to my cycle and I think it should be useful to post for next year's class.

School Range: T14 (transfer from 40-100 school)
Markets: DC (with the exception of a few in a secondary market)
Law Review: Invited to LR at 1L school, secondary journal at T14
Class Rank: Top 3-4% at 1L school
Work Experience: couple years as Biglaw paralegal
Screening Interviews: Approximately 30-35 (a few obtained outside OCI)
Callbacks: 1 in a secondary market
Offers: 0

Still attempting to mail further law firms but recruiting seems to be winding down at most places by now.

Let's get some more people at T14s who are around median... that's the most helpful for 0Ls and 1Ls. Like congrats to the "CCN top 2%ers" but we know you're getting multiple V10s without you having to post here...
