No idea what to start doing, if anything yet....

Top 10% at a T25.

22 Screeners --> 2 Cbs -----> 7 Dings. Waiting on 13, but am getting depressed. 5 Dings today alone.

I'm also feeling kinda depressed. It's been a week of OCI (11 screeners so far), and have only landed 1 CB. Granted, 4 of them were lottery picks (so I stood no chance), but for the other 7, I felt pretty good walking out.

UCLA/UT/Vandy - Right around top 1/3

It could be worse. You could be the only person you know with ZERO callbacks. Like me!

Negative hombre, zilch on the CB front too.

And my OCI ended two weeks ago. Mass mailing like my life depends on it ( it does).

Just want to say that the whole you don't get jobs through mass mail is false. I know of people who got big law through mass mailing at my t-14. I know this anecdotal so not a strong data point, but you can't really have one because the people most likely to get something from mass mailing are also the most likely to get something from OCI.

I know this sounds cliche, but just keep hustling. I'm top 40% at a T30, and literally got nothing through OCI, not even a screener, but I got an SA offer at an 100+ attorney firm in a secondary market just last week. I have no ties to the market except that it is near my university. You never know what is going to pan out, how, and when. Just keep making connections and letting anybody you know that can make a difference know that you are looking and what you want to do, and something may turn up.
