Question for Penn students: Regional OCI?

Postby glacierfrost » Tue Feb 08, 2011 2:43 pm

Hello, soon to be 1L here.

I visited the school recently and was talking with Dean Post about legal employment and how easy or difficult it was for California students to find a job back in SF/LA, etc. She told me there was something like a "regional OCI" that took place before regular OCI. Basically during the regional OCI, a bunch of California firms would come onto campus and students could essentially do a mini OCI with them and have an additional shot at getting firm jobs back in their home markets?

Has anyone done this or could speak more about the process?

The regional OCI is not on campus. They are held at the firms' offices. I guess they could be held off site at a hotel suite or something, but they are definitely in the city listed.
