beyond jealous at all your callbacks right now. i'm hearing crickets on this end. no rejection, no callbacks, nothing. i guess no news is good news... at least for now.

So you are batting like .800 including firms that basically only take high GPAs all with a 3.5 GPA?

Well, I have callbacks from the presidents office. Wants me to take over. 3.5.

edit: really not trying to be a jerk, just find it very hard to believe since I know at least 3 students with much higher GPAs who can't claim any of those firms but interviewed with all of them. The numbers are just impossible. Are you (not trying to be a jerk) "diverse" and/or on Law Review?


I guess, sorry--someone asked so I reported...not sure what else to say...guess firms really mean it when they say they are looking at more than GPA...good luck with presidents office

Yep, even the firms like Mayer who say the exact opposite of that. Either you are a liar and I hate you, or you are an amazing interview and I hate you.

It's not that I am unhappy for that person or anything, its just that it is statistically so unlikely that dozens of us on this forum with better metrics have heard nothing but silence but a single random person with lower scores has secured more CBs than everyone else combined, including from firms notoriously GPA focused. Not impossible, just statistically more likely to be BS.

I really do want to know, for all our benefit, is there something unique? Do you fit a diversity criteria or something that would give you a one over, have you been blackmailing people, or are you just an awesome person?

Seriously, if all that is true and there is none of the aforementioned justification for it, you should go buy yourself a nice steak dinner and a trophy because you just won Law School OCI.

Is it my imagination, but it seems like this OCI season is worse than last years. A lot of dings where statistically there should be CBs

srsly, Ropes dinged someone at 3.8-3.9? Geeze


Has anyone with a 3.5 or below had any luck at all? I don't even see anyone with below a 3.5 reporting anything on here.


3.5-3.6 10 Screeners so far

Callbacks: Chicaga--Winston, latham, Chapman, Mayer, Katten

Callback NY--Davis Polk

Rejections--Schiff

Heard noting from 3 others

OK - I might have a guess of who you are, and it might just be the case that you are amazingly connected and had a much better chance via said connection pretty much everywhere. In which case, good for you, but you are merely bragging not helping.

If that isn't the case, than know that I am clapping for the amazing that are your CB numbers right now.

Man, just let it go. These things are unpredictable. Maybe the person had some special softs that made up for the GPA. Maybe the firms don't like people who think they're entitled to a job just because they have a high GPA. Maybe they just didn't like you and your friends. You never know.

We have some really interesting people in our class. Can people share a bit about the interesting backgrounds and work experience that we have in our class?

Derp

Edit: Derp

But taking this back to its intended purpose, I'm glad to know everyone else is pretty much on pins and needles.

Wow--lots happened since I posted 20 minutes age with the 3.5-3.6. I wouldn't say I fit into any diversity fit or anything like that. I think I have some pretty interesting experiences before law school and tend to interview decently. Otherwise not much else to say. GL with the rest of your OCI and hopefully you will figure out whatever is keeping your high GPA from getting the callbacks that you want.

Dude(ette) - don't bother trying to appease. Good for you. No need to waste your time defending. You should be celebrating.

Don't support this guy. We should all hate him deeply. Interesting experience must be working for the FBI gaining incriminating intelligence on managing partners of the V100.

+10000000

Not OP. People need to chill. Awesome personality and/or really good and relevant work experience can go a long way. From the sounds of it, if you have a ridiculous GPA and are completely striking out, it's YOUR problem, and not that OP is sprinkling magic fairy dust on his interviewers. Maybe you should take tonight to think about your interviews and figure out what YOU can do better rather than disparage someone who is doing well.

P.S. I am don't have fantastic grades, and am doing just ok. Not some LRer trying to back up others like me.

You aren't wrong, but it doesn't seem odd to you? I mean, I don't care if the person had a 3.8. My point wasn't that they didn't deserve/earn it or that "darn, what about me." I was just surprised they had heard back from so many firms while so few others have heard from most of those firms.

CALLED OUT!

I actually meant to do both Anon, but same idea. So I'll be serious for a second. I think all this is really funny - the obsession of it. Dude with crazy callbacks, hell yeah, I should buy you a beer - good for you man. Everyone else, including me, keep rocking.

EDIT: DAMNIT! I did it again. Call it icon position force of habit - this is RoI by the way.

EDIT 2: I promise not to use anon to create a false sense of anon. Instead I will do what everyone else does and create a bunch of other accounts - my bad. (though I guess I got in that game a bit late- should have done it day 1). I wouldn't want my anonymous presence here to be less anonymous than normal anonymous.

No one cares... no need to get defensive, make up stuff, or come up with such responses.

Gotta run for now, which is disappointing since I wanted to annoy the very important and busy mods a little more, so I'll just leave this here instead-

This thread has confirmed my suspicions that the rising 2Ls have a bunch of crazies.
