We aren't really going to post offers, are we? It seems a bit useless and braggy, even if done anonymously.


As someone who has to far very much struck out at OCI, I think both of these kinds of information are helpful.

Waiting on callback results without an offer in hand yet is awful

This thread is noticeably less panicky (and whiny) than last year's at this stage.

What do we think... are we doing better, do we go on TLS less, or are we less willing to divulge strikeouts than the class above us?

I don't have any offers. Still waiting on decision from one OCI callback; if that's a ding, I struck out. I still have some more opportunities from mass mailing, so hopefully one of those will turn in to something.

I actually get the sense that there are just more lurkers than there are contributors this year. At this point last year there were over 40 pages to the Uchicago thread, and I would imagine that is due to more people actively posting at every stage of the OCI process (bid-list critiques, breaking CB news, etc.) than there are this year. I suppose only Admins really know.
