Anyone have any idea how the Chicago market is shaping up for OCI this year?

It's too early to tell about offers and summer class sizes. NU is in the middle of OCI, Chicago hasn't started yet. I think the number of interview slots at NU is the same or slightly larger than last year for most firms (big screw up with K&E not withstanding). Too hard to tell about CB ranges and #s yet.

Career services thought they had 160 interview slots, K&E only had 80, hilarity ensued

They re-ran the lottery for people who bid them, so kids who were smart and bid them low got screwed. K&E made their interviews 15 minutes instead of 20, so there are 108 interviews now. The rest of the kids have to go to the hospitality suite and hustle.
