I batted 0.500 in the 2010 OCI, which was pretty brutal.
Stats? Number of callbacks?
I don't know 50/50 just seems a bit too optimistic for me. I think realistically with 4 CBs you will probably just have 1 offer. 2 if you are a great interviewer. 6-8 callbacks will likely yield 2-3 offers. More like 25%-33% of CBs yield offers IMO.
I was an IP transfer from a shit school with decent grades, but nothing crazy. I went 4/10 on offers/CBs.
I think that, in the aggregate, the 50% number isn't that far-fetched. It seems to be representative of the entire interviewing cohort because stronger candidates will often net a higher CB:offer ratios (I know of some from the top of my class that pulled naerly 100% CB:offer ratios with TONS of CBs), whereas the rest of the candidates scatter around the curve (e.g. someone with 1 CB will either go 100% or 0%, and, as the previous anon said, many will land around 25-35%).
ETA: for those doing 3LOLOCI for IP, I bid (to cover my bases, and never ended up interviewing) last year and still got a bunch of screeners. Thus, there is STILL HOAP if you're left at the end of 2L summer with no offers.
