Yeah, it was sent out in an email this morning. I was at a T2 but transferred out.

how hard is it to break into the seattle market? I got one interview, but not sure if it's worth the traveling cost since I have no ties and am going to school out of the area.

Also, I had always thought that interviews are preselect until I got the email.

It is my understanding that, without strong ties or coming from HYS, it is incredibly difficult to get Seattle.

I'm in the same boat and canceling. Too expensive for too low odds. If I had more than 1 interview, I'd probs feel differently.

I don't particularly want Seattle


You probably shouldn't waste your time and money if the interviews are for Seattle offices. PDX may be different if your ties are strong.

Did you do OCI at your transfer school?

I'm going! I have three interviews, hoping to add a few more.

Since none of these offices attended my OCI, does anyone have general callback GPA cutoffs for these firms (Seattle or Portland)?

I thought it went really well. Most people were able to add interviews throughout the day. I ended up with eight. Most of the people I interviewed with were great - really knowledgable and conscious about diversity at their firms. Really glad I went. Now the wait begins.
