I personally don't know anyone outside top 10-15% or so who got SA biglaw positions through OCI.
Two guys I know in HLJ: One did not get any biglaw job. The other got one because he had known the managing partner of the firm even before law school, and she did him a favor. Not sure if it's a big firm, but the name is somewhat familiar. This firm had not had a summer program for a few years, and he was the exception. He did not get a post-grad offer.
Of course I know others in HLJ who got biglaw SA through OCI, but they have the "partner" aura or the quiet "sniper" aura.
Corporate and IP work in Silicon Valley are going down because FB IPO is over, and clients are leaving big firms for some reason. I heard only half the WSGR's (forgot the specific office) summer class got an offer back because they overhired the class before two of its clients jumped ship.
