i don't want to waste my time trying to add interviews with firms i really want but weren't underbid if i'm really unlikely to be able to get those interviews.
Yes, this is what I'd like to know for tomorrow...
We only get 5 adds, and while I can technically add the underbid firms, those would likely be reaches where I'd have a less good shot. I'd rather wait for the firms I'm most interested in to free up, but I also don't want to miss the opportunity to add underbid ones if those are the only realistic addable firms.
yeah im basically in the exact same pickle. any input from the 3Ls on how likely it actually is for firms to "free up" during EIP? im under the impression that you would get in trouble with career services if u dropped interviews after the "drop period." do people really still cancel the day of EIP?
Yes, I could have gotten some more interviews during EIP, but that requires spending time downstairs instead of schmoozing other interview suites, and you'll be exhausted (the process is very tiring, which is very surprising at the end of day 1). Also, as important as extra interviews are, and as much as you now want to add more interviews, after one day, you're not going to be very excited at the prospect of spending yet another 20 minutes in a room with a stranger, talking about BS (not to mention prep, etc). Still, if I remember correctly, interviews in niche areas were likely to be open mid-EIP (things like IP, a firm's Hong Kong office, etc).
And what is this 5 add max? I don't remember that from last year.
