one way to add to your "luck" factor is to schedule ur CB's early. don't worry about class schedule, social events or whatever. the earlier your CB the better chance you have at snagging one of the firm's offers. simple as that.
Very good advice. I had at least one firm call me up (after a CB in very late September) telling me that they really want to bring me on, but that their yield from earlier CB's was higher than expected and they had reached the limit. I got calls from 2 people I interviewed with apologizing to me, saying they had wholeheartedly recommended that I receive an offer, but that the management committee was sticking firm on the number of summers they bring in, which was already reached. Had I scheduled earlier (which I didn't, as I was trying to avoid missing class), I would have gotten an offer.
Bottom line: Schedule them early, and put class aside
