Huh? They do. They tell you the dates a firm is at OCI. It's simple math from there. The problem is that different firms get vastly different numbers of bids from year to year.


Except this is only half the picture. Some firms send one interviewer for one day. They would have, say, 24 slots (8 hour day x 3 slots/hour). But some firms send 6 interviewers, in which case they have maybe 48 slots. Some have two interviewers for every interview, others do interviews one on one. you get the idea. Point is, the number of days that the firm is on campus for tells you almost nothing.

And what would knowing the exact number of slots do for you? Considering you wouldn't know how many people are likely to bid on that firm in any given year. To the extent it'd help you bid firms with many slots...others would bid them too. The group think sabotages any advantage you'd get.

Anybody heard from Vinson & Elkins? The UT thread says they give CB offers in 24 hours but I'm hoping that isn't the case for other schools.

My first ding came from an interview that I thought went fairly well. I'm afraid I might be a horrible interviewer, since I got dinged from an interview that I thought went well. Afraid I might be fucked.
