No ties to the area, top third at a top 10, non-AA, bidding on the relatively better firms of the area (MOFO, OMM, etc), if I could get a dream job in DC I would take it before SF, NYC is OK too.
Definitely worth it. People DO get jobs out of the SF diversity fair. I would be careful about OMM, though, they are having a lot of problems. Transactions is pretty much dead in their SF office, they have had some defections, and their start dates for incoming associates are much later than other Bay Area firms.
I wanted to apply to the Diversity Fair, but not all my grades are back yet. The deadline for submitting files for the fair was today. I sent in a transcript complete minus the two forthcoming grades, but am I out of luck?
The site says no exceptions for file submission, and I imagine a lot of firms will want to see a full set before making a decision. My only hope's that they'll email me later on during the pre-select process, but that's probably not going to happen.
(I'm the one that encouraged you to apply to the Diversity Fair.)
I have nothing but speculation to offer in response, but I would say that you aren't out of luck. I'm sure there are a number of applicants that had to send in incomplete transcripts. Just bring copies of your updated/complete transcript with you to the interviews. I don't think they will email you during the pre-select process, but it wouldn't hurt to email the recruitment coordinators with a copy of your completed transcript as soon as you have one, assuming there are no rules against contacting them. Good luck!
