I'm just proud that I was able to restrain myself from saying "T18, actually"

I haven't even done OCI and no-offer is enough to keep me up at night.

This is the main reason I'm incredibly thankful to have a 1L SA. If i get no offerred I'll just work for my 1L firm.

What's the difference between a soft offer and a soft no-offer?

Soft means you're not going to be working there next year, but you can tell 3L OCI employers you got one so you don't look incompetent. No offer = boned with few exceptions.

I'm kept up by the thought of not getting a SA to begin with.

TITCR. Teeeerrified of CBs going badly because of fit or me screwing something up and even just being low man on the credential totem pole if they have too many people they like for the number of spots. At this point I'm wondering if I'll even be able to switch off for the rest of the fall if I do pick one up. :roll:

is a soft offer the same as a cold offer?

Yes, it also goes by Limp Dick Offer in certain circles.
