Don't results come out next Monday, or am I mistaken? Guess it's never too early to join the OCI freakout en masse.

OCI itself doesn't release until next week, but the regional programs are already announcing bids.

3.35, secondary journal
also 0/5 on NY regional
dinged by A&O, Chadbourne, Linklaters, OMM, W&C

not hugely disappointing because I don't really want to be in New York. I thought I'd throw some bids out as "back-ups" - so now I'm in full-on panic mode.

Correct me if I'm wrong: my Symplicity says pre-select sign-up isn't until 9PM on Tuesday, 8/9. What makes you guys think results are out Monday?

Also, from the FRP info packet:
August 9, 2011, 9:00 pm EDT – August 11, 2011, 9:00 pm EDT
OCI Interview scheduling to begin (check Symplicity between August 9-11 to see if you have been selected for an interview and to schedule interviews).

Concur - All documentation indicates tomorrow, not today.

However, I ALREADY got a snail mail rejection from an IP firm in California (actually I got the rejection on the Saturday after the Wednesday signup deadline - quick turn around). Does that seem like a bit much? I would have assumed the same thing when I wasn't selected for an interview.

My cover letters kind of suck. I just want Tuesday to come already so I can blame my cover letters for the fail.
