Anyone know what the "negative consequences" are of opting in?

Anyone know how much WL movement we can expect? I'm happy with the interviews I got, but I'm also super, super greedy.

2012 graduate here. If I remember correctly, I was on the waitlist/standby list for three or so firms. One contacted me to interview with them the day before OCI, and there was no movement on the other two in my case. I don't remember a lot of movement. Most people who get interviews tend to go.

So what's the advantage of opting in/opting out? Does it hurt to opt in everywhere?

Now it says schedules aren't up till 7.
