Or just a wasted bid? Median at P with some work experience.

I think it's a reach, but doable. If you are a great interviewee, it will make a difference. People under-estimate how important interviewing is at OCI.

It's a reach but definitely possible. I know a couple of 3Ls around or slightly over median with V5 jobs lined up.

Would Skadden offer interviews to a student in the top 10 percent of their class?

If they interview at your school, yes. I'm not aware of many firms that yield protect at the screening interview stage (although maybe they do at the CB stage).

If they're at your OCI, it's worth a bid, and if they're not it's worth a mail. I don't see it happening unless by top 10% you mean top 1%, but it can't hurt.

Almost certainly no.
