Michigan OCI 2012

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Jul 08, 2012 3:28 pm

Figured I'd start one of these threads since the one from 2011 was so helpful.

While I'm at it - Heard that LR calls starting going out yesterday. Yet to get a call or an e-mail. Anyone else?

Rejection emails came to multiple people last night. You may be in luck!!

While I'm here-how weird will a 3.8 with no LR look? Didn't submit for any secondaries.

This thread is relevant to my interests.

Didn't try for LR, so no insight there.

Lucky enough to get a call from LR yesterday, so I can confirm that acceptances have at least started to go out.

Also got a LR call yesterday. On the OCI front, is anyone planning on doing any mass mailing? When are we supposed to start that? I was thinking next week or so.

I am, since I am focusing on a secondary market that isn't sending too many firms to OCI. Haven't started yet, but you're right, should probably get on that.

And congrats, both of you!

Checking in for the mass mailing. Targeting CA (SF mostly). Been getting my materials together and hoping to send out the first few apps this week. Don't know if this is early or late though -- anyone here anything about when firms want/expect mass mails? I've heard its good to get them in a bit before Fall starts and firms get swamped with OCI stuff, but I don't know if that's true or not.

Not OP but I plan on sending a cover letter, resume, and a transcript. Am I missing anything? Also received call for LR (ironically was waitlisted for the Int'l Journal a few weeks ago).

Should we be mailing writing samples? That's the only thing you don't mention; but, I'm not sure what the conventional wisdom is.

I guess a writing sample makes sense.

I was planning on Resume, CL, Writing Sample, and Transcript as well, unless the firm particularly specified some other combination.

Anybody hear anything on email vs. snailmail?

Everything I've heard suggests email is fine. I just don't know whether to include a writing sample. I was just going to do Resume, Coverletter, and transcript.

JLR asked for responses by July 12 and Law Review told me all responses would be out in advance.

Anyone else having major bid-list anxiety? The market is the biggest issue. SO has a job they love here, so we were planning on bidding A2 and Detroit. We also wouldn't mind Chicago or DC. Ugh. I was the above poster 3.8 with no LR.

I'm having major bid-list anxiety. I'm pretty much tied to the DC market, but I have a NY market GPA. My 3.25 is going to make it quite hard to land on my feet in DC. So... I'm pretty much fucked.

Are you in D.C. this summer? Start networking like crazy (with Mich alums, undergrad alums, anyone who will talk to you) at the firms that you have a shot at... you never know what could happen.

Does anyone know or can a 3L talk about what firms have been flooded with bids in the past? Lots of people have mentioned that the lower GPA firms are usually overbid (and so you should bid them high in your list), but at what GPA mean/median does that taper off? If I'm bidding on firms in the 3.5-3.6 range as well as some firms with a lower range, should I worry about not getting interviews with the 3.5-3.6 firms and bid them high?
