14 CBs (8 NY, 2 Philly, 4 secondary markets) - a bit below median (~3.15). Almost all V100's - can't complain.

12 CBs. 4 NY, 8 DC. ~top 10%, LR. 1 offer thus far.

Defintely happy, but surprised at how much worse my OCI:CB ratio for DC was. Got CBs from 4 of 6 NY firms (all v15). Did not do as well in DC.

Did anyone get dings from Morgan Lewis or Dechert (Philly)? I have heard nothing from either and wondering if they didn't bother sending dings, or I am on some kind of waitlist.

How late are people doing callbacks? I have only done 4 of 12 at this point and am going into late September to finish.

Wow. This year is definitely better than last year. 3.15 with 14 CBs? I know 3Ls with better grades that completely struck out.

Does anyone not have multiple callbacks? It seems like everybody's got at least 5.

~3.08, secondary journal. 5 CBs, 1 NY, 3 secondary market, 1 government. 1 offer in secondary market. Overall, not spectacular.

With a GPA that low, you should be thanking your lucky stars to have 5 CB's. Might not be spectacular, but it is damn close

...I thought the point of this forum was the opposite of comments like this?

I phrased my comment poorly. What I meant to say is that he should think positively, rather than thinking his results weren't great. In fact, his results are pretty darn solid, and he should keep his head up about them.

I agree with this guy. Your grades are significantly below median, and you have an offer. Be happy.

I think people that went for NYC did pretty well no matter their grades. California...it seems like it was feast or famine, and I think there was plenty of famine.

But most Californians have been back in CA for the past two weeks, so it's possible more callbacks came through that I haven't heard about over that time.

I talked to a few people that wished they had done better, but overall I think it's pretty clear that OCI went much better than the previous two years.

What's the consensus on people getting shut out? I know a couple of people that are starting to freak a bit (people that have less than three combined remaining callbacks/callbacks that haven't yet resulted in rejection), but the majority seem to have choices to make.

CA was very rough. Most offices only have 3-6 spots unless we're talking about GDC, OMM or PH. Seems they were looking for the best of the best and gave preferential treatment to the local schools.
