Got one yesterday afternoon, maybe from the same firm that others posted about. Just above median, lower t14.

Is the career fair event itself useful at all for networking/resume drop purposes? I've only received 1 invite and have little ties to the office hiring. Not sure if it's worth the trip.

Does anyone know what offices these are for? Are they for the DC offices of the firms, or just for the firm in general? Trying to decide if it's worth accepting interviews.

Edit: Ok, nevermind. I see one of the firms doesn't even have a DC office.

Starting to feel like my writing sample must have some glaring errors in it.. no interviews here yet.

JW, did you all put that you were attending the fair itself in your submission? I didn't, and I am hoping (!) that's why I haven't gotten any responses.

It's probably grades not your writing sample.

Just received an invitation but unfortunately I am not going because I am attending another job fair. However, I will be interviewing with the same firm, but a different office. How am I supposed to reply to the invitation? Decline and explain? Anything more I can do to maximize my chances?

3L with 1 interview....as for the career fair, does it list what firms are going to be at the career fair? is it just like a resume drop off outside of the scheduled interviews people are getting?

Was surprised to even get a firm interview considering it said very limited non-IP firms seeking 3Ls

Question. If I already got firm X from my school's OCI, and I got a request to interview with them during the diversity fair, is it kosher to interview two times with the same firm?

I was wondering that myself--invite e-mails don't say.

+1 I really need to know this because I don't want to go down there to interview for DC branch (which I honestly have no shot at) when I can mass mail them for a NYC (low chances but still something).

Now that I'm thinking about it: this will probably vary by firm or organization. Maybe try to reach out to them directly?

3L here. I'm really curious about this fair. Anyone who participated last year willing to share their experience?

Negatory - but I hope that one comes tomorrow.

Well, you included in your profile what cities/states you are interested in working in. I only put LA, SF, and NYC, and got a preselect. It probably differs. I googled the "contact" they gave me, and he is located in new york.

I'm still getting invites for interviews... I suppose I should stop complaining but two and a half day's notice feels very rushed.

Thoughts on taking an interview at this fair vs interviewing at OCI? Firm says I can't do both.
