As did I. Honestly it's been so long since I submitted my bids and have been locked out that I forgot I bid on them.

Wonder why they cancelled. No attractive candidates? No money?

iirc, they were a dc firm coming to the chicago diversity fair.... so maybe it a cost/benefit expense thing...

You might not have. I got that email too even though I did not bid for that firm, so I think they just sent it out to everyone. Can't wait for that dang interview list! Do you think end of the week = Friday or could they mean even Sunday?

Is the supplemental form the only way additional interviews will be added to the schedule now? Or will there be more added as employers decide on our resumes? I didn't quite understand it from the email.

I got 6 also. Top 10%, Midwest T25. And I had a really bad bidding strategy too because I didn't know any better when I did the bidding.

Also, how do you know the max is 8?

I don't know if there's a way to know. The interviews I did get were ranked thusly. (1, 8, 9, 12, 24, 25). Make of that what you will.

How far down your bid list did people get interviews for? I got five of my top ten and then two in the lower teens. Top 20% T30.

What's the deal with this supplemental interview form? Are those the only firms that have empty interview slots?

I wish they hadn't locked our accounts for so long. I would have liked to have used an updated resume... you know... for after I made journal.

but whatever.
