FORDHAM OCI PREDICTION, help greatly appreciated

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jul 06, 2012 11:38 pm

About top 15%, very very slightly above a 3.5, still waiting to hear from journals, worked at a small firm every summer during college, bilingual. I'm bidding pretty conservatively, but I am definitely shooting for biglaw. How many interviews should I expect (35 bids, 60% preselect 40% lottery) and what do you think my chances of getting a job through EIW are? Thanks.

Totally depends on the bid list and strategy you use. Use offer tracker and that SBA sheet and talk to whoever you can.

ETA: Expect between 15-25 interviews.

I believe ~25% of ppl get jobs at EIW. You have a good chance of getting a job.

I would predict between 10-15 interviews, although the number could go up to 20-25 if you write onto law review.

Calm down. You're going to get how ever many interviews you get and there's nothing you can do about it. Someone guessing 15 vs 25 interviews won't change the outcome. Instead of asking about random people's opinions on how well you might do, you should practice your interviewing skills (because that the ONLY thing you can do at this point to maximize your success from OCI). T15% at Fordham should meet the cutoff for most firms, so striking out at Biglaw won't be because of your grades for the most part.
