Well, now I'm just confused. From the e-mail we just received regarding OCI:

"If the column reads 'preselect' next to the employer, you have been selected for an interview. . . . When scheduling opens, "preselect" will change to 'accept preselect.'"

This would indicate that the results will go up before scheduling opens at 9PM tomorrow, but WHEN that will happen, who knows? Three cheers for 1) hopelessly analyzing things we can't control and 2) clicking refresh a LOT.

Based on last year's thread, it looks like Symplicity glitched out at midnight and showed everyone their bids for a while until CDO shut it off in the morning... and then it came back in the afternoon. This is all conjecture based on: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=126471

They're up.

1 alternate. 1 preselect.

37 bids.

FML.

I mean I knew my grades were bad, but now I'm starting to wonder if I wrote leper on my resume somewhere...

EDIT: Oh yea, the relevant stats I suppose. Below median, no journal, several extra-currics, judicial internship this summer (state court).

Alternate with McKenna Long, preselect Bryan Cave NY.

I thought that being a member of the Promissory Notes would for sure give me an edge...

Transfer Student: 3 preselects, 1 alternative. Lawls. Curiously, the alternative is a V10 that I applied to because I had an extra bid.
