Bidding on firm that already interviewed and rejected you

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jan 11, 2011 6:05 pm

My school has an IP firm at OCI that I interviewed with and was dinged at in December.

I shouldn't bid on it at all for the mini 1L oci we have right?

There are only 5 other firms, none of them IP other than this one at OCI.

Might be different now if you have grades.

If law school OCI is anything like business school OCR, then the firm prob doesn't even remember rejecting you since they get so many resumes and a lot of the time it's just a program scanning through resumes looking for specific words that they like on resumes.

If it was just a resume reject I'd agree but I had an actual interview. Only a screener though.

I would not bid again unless something significant changed in your profile (i.e., grades).

Polite cease and desist letter at the end of the 20 minutes.

One of the times I never heard back which counts as an offer in my book.
