Not BC/BU, but I'm still waiting on Skadden. Had a CB over 2 weeks ago.

Thanks. It was my last OCI hope, so it hurts a little extra. I hope it isn't, and they just haven't called you yet!

So now that OCI is mostly over, what sense did everyone get re how BU/BC did this past year? Sometimes when I talk to folks I feel like so many people got OCI jobs but then other times I feel like 1/4 of the people I'm talking to did.

Not well. I think it's the whole vocal majority issue.

Based on the number of people I know that have offers, I'd guess it's going to be similar to last year for NLJ 250 placement, somewhere around the 18-25% range.

Also curious about this. I never even heard back from them after the screener interview. Seems as if something is a little off with their recruiting efforts in their Boston office this year.

Agreed. I never heard back, either - maybe they messed something up?

Did they do the same at BC?

Edit: As a follow up to this, I've heard that at least 5-10 BU 2Ls had offers at Bingham but not a single one (that I've heard of) accepted Bingham's offer. That makes a bit more sense as to why they posted again.

I'm not at BC/BU, but I'm wondering whether anyone has heard back from Withers Bergman (CT) yet? I can't find anything about them from this year's OCI except on this thread. Thanks!

Just FYI - Latham & Watkins Boston has supposedly filled up their summer class (according to the rejection letter they sent).

anyone gotten an interview yet from PWC or EY from the resume collection? I see people posting about it on other threads but I assume they're talking about the NY office.
