Hit the little informational "i" icon next to each firm's name on the left and there should be a text field that lists the names of schedules interviewers. Some firms haven't listed anyone and some have listed up to 5 or so. I don't think we have access to who is conducting our specific interviews yet, though.

When you are in the OCI tab, click "Scheduled Interviews" then it will show you your interview list in chronological order. When you click "review" next to each firm's name it will show your specific interviewer if the firm has already posted interviewers.

Sometimes they list multiple people, so are we getting screened by more than 1 person in some interviews? I was under the impression that the multiple people listed was the entire interviewing crew that the firm was sending. Definitely could be wrong.

I'm down for this. What do we have, like 450 kids in our class? Anytime someone new gets an offer, we should rage in the courtyard.

It's the only thing keeping me going. The promise of sweet sweet relaxation if/when we get offers.

This information is not 100% accurate, just FYI. A few may change it up on you so pay attention to who it says your interviewer is on the hotel room door when you arrive.

Did anyone get any waitlist interviews? Doesn't look like I've gotten any, although maybe the system is just slow to show them.

Yeah, I'm showing one off the waitlist after opting into about 12 or so. Career Services said not to expect more than a few, even if you opt into everything.

Transfer student reporting in:

# of screeners: 22
# of screeners from top 20: 15
# of screeners below top 20: 7
# of screeners in 41-50 zone: 1 (QE - SF >.>)
Markets: 14 NY, 7 SF, 1 Boston (Ropes)

Missed out on Sidley at 6. (Time conflict?) Got the firms I was really interested in, missed on 1-3 that I actually wanted. Probably could've been more strategic if I'd had more time to plan my bids. Mostly happy, significantly more interviews than at old school so WHATEVAH.

Edit: Why do some of the dates appear as clickable buttons? When I click it symplicity says something to the extent "NO TIME SLOTS AVAILABLE." Does that mean time conflict? Can I move things around to fix that?

It's because open-sign up just opened today, which means you can sign up for any firms with empty slots left, if they fit into your schedule.

Picked up three interviews, including one firm that registered after the bidding deadline and one that I only discovered fit my interests after bidding. Bad news is, I'm now over 30 interviews for the three days, which will probably be unpleasant.

Is anybody printing the extra copies of their resume/transcripts/writing sample on special paper?

OCS recommended in some email or website that resumes be on bond paper.

Personally, whatever is in the printer at the Kinko's is what I'll be using. I can't imagine anybody gives a shit.

For what it's worth, I would think it strange if someone sent me a resume on normal printer paper.

Good call. I'll check to see if I can get some from the office tomorrow.

Do you really want to work for a place that would give a shit? If I was handed a resume on bond paper, I'd think the guy's a tool.
