As OP, I chose 30% because practically all jobs that have preferences prefer top 10%, 20%, 25% or top 1/3rd. I didn't mean to imply that anyone higher than top 30% won't struggle as well...I just meant that for those of us on the lower end of the spectrum, our job hunt will be different than those who can rely on OCI.
I recognize that everyone except the lucky few who succeed at OCI will be mass mailing, networking, etc. as well. I just wanted to get the opinions of others like myself who will be applying at smaller firms and also do not have the traditional paths of 2L summer offers and OCI as avenues like you might.
For the poster who asked, I'm at a T80.
How many firms are even coming to your OCI? I'm guessing only a handful of employers are coming to your OCI and probably 95% of your class is gonna have to resort to mass-mail/networking. You shouldn't be alone.
