Yes, but under the Waterman precedent, hilarity is not a defense, and that poster had prior warnings. If anyone wants to continue discussing it please PM me, but let's let the thread get back on track?

What did I do wrong? I got way fewer callbacks than expected. Can't complain too much about the end result, but still somewhat disappointing in terms of my top choice firms saying "no thanks"

4 CBs in DC is impressive. I'm at HYS and many folks who targeted DC got less than that.

We need more data points from the top 25% of the T14. Do they do well at OCI?

yea, I'm at MVP and everyone it the top 25% has something within the V100, prob within V50. it seemed like top half all got something, if they bid on NYC. However, with DC it was a different story, you probably need at least top 25% to break into that market.
