I did. Did very well -- in fact, maybe too many screeners.

no charlotte. 16 NYC (with about 6 also in DC), 2 secondary. total 18.

I dont think everyone knew that they could ADD NEW employers... because, to add 5 NEW employers is pretty crazy.
edit: got NONE off waitlist.

Picked up one more- at 18 now.
Did anyone ever confirm if the numbers in the estimated 2L slots column is the number of interview spaces open?

cant confirm that officially, but I only picked up NEW firms, that had spots open before I bid on them in the second wave.

Actually got 3 opt-ins . . .

Ended up with 23 total (20 NYC and 3 in Secondary Markets).

I got 14 in the first round, picked up 7 in the second go around for 21 total. My first 14 were all New York, but now I have a few DC's and one Chicago.

Not confirmed, but that is almost certainly the case. Of the 10 firms I added for this second round, all had slots open. I picked up 5 new interviews from those.

23 interviews here, mostly DC
Do people know when dinner invites go out? Is it during the interview? sometime after the interview?

3L here. This is similar to what I got. I started out with 18 bidding exclusively on New York and added another 5 for firms in my secondary market that weren't full on Symplicity and through emailing recruiters. If you didn't get a firm you wanted, start emailing recruiters now. Tell them you didn't get an interview but would love to meet with them and why. I can almost guarantee you'll pick up at least one or two interviews this way. Do the same thing at OCI. Arrive early and slip your resume under doors and talk with the recruiters and attorneys in the suites. They're often willing to interview you before or after the scheduled interviews or during lunch or breaks.
