I have NO ties to Chicago besides having been to the city several times and would like to live there, so I'm wondering what kind of chance I really have in terms of getting a CB/offer. My other concern is that I applied to Skadden's NY office and Bryan Cave's Atlanta office. Does anyone know if these firms do their recruiting separately for difference offices?


Well, what are your stats?


Top 20% MVP+good (or maybe just okay) WE.


Think you've got a shot with all except Barack. If you're not bidding these offices at OCI or if they're not coming to your OCI, I don't see why you shouldn't give it a chance.

Why do you say no shot at Barack?

Well, they're very selective and only have about 3 SAs a year.

EDIT: Dropped all of them. Hopefully they'll reschedule. Anyone had to do this or know of others?

Quick question:

Got some preselects here but due to transfer orientation won't be able to attend (have been told in no uncertain terms that I have to go to orientation.) My school's offered to help reschedule the interviews, but should I go ahead and drop them before I've spoken to any firm about my situation?

Are you not going to bid on these firms at OCI then?


My understanding is that bidding on the firms in OCI is a waste. They won't interview you twice


Your understanding is correct. I did 8 screeners at CCBA last year. The big advantage for me was not having to bid those firms at OCI.

Firm I interviewed with said they had no openings and just like to interview a lot of people to see if they find someone exceptional. Agency said they will be in touch with a decision, if and when the position is funded.
