Your delusion is cute. Search the forum for the bloodbath that was Chicago's 2010 OCI. In fact, I'll search for you because that's just the kinda guy I am.
This thread shows no evidence that Chicago did bad last year in OCI. I honestly haven't polled all of the 2Ls, but I would guess that at least 75% got great jobs. Just because some guy who struck out in the thread says that "it was a bloodbath," doesn't mean it actually was. From what I've heard, just those that were at the median and bid Chicago super heavy (didn't understand that New York was where the most jobs were at) had big problems.
I think they bid Chicago super heavy because they wanted to spend their lives living and working in Chicago. They probably weren't super interested in NYC. I read that the number of SA jobs in Chicago is about a third of what it was before ITE. Before, most of these people would have easily gotten jobs from OCI. I don't think that it was only the kids from median who didn't get jobs through OCI. And since when has being median at Chicago been anything less than a great accomplishment and a stellar credential for your future career? Median at Chicago puts a student very high in the list of all law school graduates. Don't think that the median students at Chicago are not to be respected.
But you are right, it would be nice to know where they ended up for 2L SA.
edit some more quotes from that thread:
mid 178's. 17 interviews, all NY. 0 cb, 1 confirmed rejection. Any hope?
Things really seem to suck in New York for the median crowd. I really hope they are doing waves as well
mid 178's are doing no better in NY. I have heard that DC is just terrible. Although if firms are doing multiple rounds of callbacks who knows
My point is that people from all schools need to be pro-active when searching for 2L SA. I think there are people on this forum who believe this:
Why is it relevant for anyone at CCN? Areyouinsane’s harangue is pointed at Seton Hall, and the likes. $3K a week summer jobs (there are plenty of them) are not the material for gloom.
