May end up cancelling the DC interviews and hopping on the waitlist for some other firms.

Question, does anyone know how to opt into the waitlist for a particular firm? The handbook and the OCS emails aren't helpful.

How many screeners do you guys want to have? 30 seems like a lot. I have 26.

I believe you have to click ont he scheduled date within symplicity that is next to each firm's name. From that page you can click on opt-in. Not 100% sure on this since I'm going off of memory.

Only one I'm bummed at losing was Clearly in the 30s. What did it clear at? Last year it didn't fill, :(.

Should have bid Cleary instead and maybe you would have gotten the interview.

you can't. but if someone on here got a firm at 20, and someone else lost at 21, well, there you go. by searching through old threads i was able to figure out some prior years' clearing prices.

Not a NYU student but just wondering approximately how many employers are participating and how many interview slots are there per employer?

if you're not an nyu student, why do you care?

interview slots per employer obviously varies dramatically based on the size of the employer, from 1 to 200+/

Weil is historically overbid so I bet people didn't get them lower than 10/11.

Opt-in.

Didn't bid them, but from what I heard from rising 3L's you pretty much had to put them in the top 10 to have a shot, but probably even top 5. Same with like Kirkland or Skadden.

got Weil at 5. In 2011 someone reported losing out on Weil in the teens as well.
