1L OCI Lottery Interview

Postby TTH » Wed Feb 16, 2011 11:42 am

So I scored an interview with the one good firm coming to 1L OCI through the lottery, and I'm wondering just how low my expectations for the interview should be. The way I see it, a firm is not looking to hire a lot of 1Ls (although this firm hired 5 in 08 and 4 in '09), and they didn't pre-select me.

Has anyone ever gotten the CB after a lottery screener? It just seems like there's nothing I'm gonna say or do in a 20 minute screening interview that's going to make them love me that much given that I'm sure the people they pre-selected are top 5-10% (like I said, this is the best employer of the four that came to OCI), and I'm around top 25%.

Thoughts?

Eh, just treat it like any other interview. If nothing else it will be decent practice.
