markets: any big cities. e.g., DC, LA, NY, Chicago, etc. I'm very open and flexible.
Worked in LA and DC. From the midwest.
approx class rank: 25-30%. hard to say. Median is about a 3.25 from what I hear.
Good interview skills? I'd consider myself pretty good. The only time I've actually gotten real feedback on my interviews is when I was doing practice interviews with OCS. They said I had a good strong presence.
And nope, I'm not expecting to get an offer. My summer job's at a govt agency. If I did get a job offer, should I let firms know that? Or would it look like I'm already married to the government?

Thanks in advance. Much obliged

How many firms are even coming to your OCI that interview 3Ls? You should be targeting all of them...

This is both a good question and the great opening line to a joke.
