3.30-3.33 at Cornell

URM, solid work experience before law school, lots of leadership in extracurriculars, etc. What are my chances for OCI?

Our stated median is 3.35; but for one class in which I earned a B-, I'd be around a 3.37 (assuming I got a B+). Should I explain this grade? Will I even be asked about it?

If you bid conservatively you should have an ok chance at getting something.

Did Freshfields drop out? I bid them at 5 and they're not on there anymore.

Kind of OT, when do we find out what firms we got from the lottery?

Also OP if your work experience is as solid as you think it is, you should have a pretty good shot.

Thanks! Symplicity says that open sign ups begin on July 18th, so I'm guessing we'll know our schedules around the 17th.
