From personal experience, I'm in the top 10% and had a much higher rate of getting chosen by top firms than some lower ones I bid. I think that helped people along the gpa distribution to get more interviews with firms they're likely to land offers with.
Also, at least a few people with decent offers coming into OGI chose not to take the full 23 when they could have. Know of at least one who took less than 10. That might have opened up a few more interviews for folks just under top 10% (and then subsequently bumped a few more down, and so on).
And yes, Donovan is the shit.
I'll second that I know several people who declined most (or all) of their OGI interviews because they had already received an offer they wanted to take.
Of course, I'm not sure how that will translate to the rest of us getting CBs and offers even if we have lots of screeners. I've heard some talk about the ratio of conversion from screener to CB... any thoughts on the difference between PS/alt and lottery conversion rates?
Also curious about screener to offer conversion rates depending on whether the screener was a PS/alt or lottery.
And how about Special Request to offer conversion rates? Maybe somewhere in between?
