Wow, I can't believe it just took me ten minutes to work it out. Fortunately, they don't seem to interview at my school's OCI.

That would be very useful to them.



When I saw it, I shat bricks.

My God. I would have to read seven pages of "edit" and "." and "Firm X did something" and "I would save your money"...nonsense. This thread is slightly lolz-worthy. Anyone wanna get me up to speed?

I swear it would take a plague of locusts to get some of you to see the truth. Some of you need to use the left side of your brains for once while reading this page.

Since I see no reason to keep this thread open, and since it continues to serve as bait for the assholish among you, I'm gonna go ahead and put it down.

Legitimate complaints/concerns/etc. may be directed here.

Though I respect chup's judgment I must bump this thread just to share a PM from a DIFFERENT user that seems to support OP's claims:

Anon PM wrote:I have a friend who was/is a first-year litigation associate with Firm X (and was also deferred by them in 2010). He was just given three months to find a new gig and was told they had taken on too many associates in his class. I guess this confirms that. Thanks for the info.


Wishing you all the best for OCI! :)
