2011 had all OCIs ITE, so that's my vote.

2014 because the world will end in 2012 and they will never go through OCI

+1. If I'm below median my backup strategy is to bank on the fact that the world will end anyway.

2011 for biglaw.

For law in general, maybe 2010.

Are we restricting ourselves to the initial hiring stage, or are we including the associates who were the victims of the sweeping layoffs? Because if we are being inclusive, you might want to add a few more years to that thread.

2011 got totally hosed from the beginning.

2010 was also slaughtered but in a more random, spotty way (chance of getting no-offered was higher in general but varied WIDELY from firm to firm).

Surprised so many voted for C/O 2010.

2011 OCI was way worse than C/O 2010. Sure, no-offers were the worst in C/O 2010, but I'm not sure they quite made up for the 2011 OCI slaughter.

How is 2014 on here but 2009 is not? Really? Comparatively, 2014 will be a cake-walk compared to what that class went through post-OCI.
