Any stats on how 2Ls fared this year?

Have any schools released any numbers on how many people ended up with offers from OCI?

No, they won't release information about summer positions because it gives the impression that OCI is the preferred way of getting a position. Even though everyone knows that OCI is really what matters the schools don't want to admit it.

Here at CLS they release this information to the 1Ls every year before OCI starts

Yeah, they give it out around March/April. I took your post to mean that schools never released this information.

No, they wait until summer because they don't want the people who struck out at OCI to freak out any more than they already are about having some sort of employment. I think my school includes non-OCI employment, particularly government, in the statistics it releases to the next class and it tries really hard to tell people to mass-mail, look at smaller firms, etc...

No. I go to CLS, so I would know better than you when they give this info out.

Ummmm OP never asked about CLS. Also, I am not saying CLS or any other school doesn't release information in the Spring, I'm saying they don't release until very close to the end of the school year. The "no" was referring to my school never releasing info about OCI results, not referring to CLS' practices.

Last I checked, CLS counts as "any school."

These articles are all I know of regarding overall hiring trends for Summer 2012*. You're asking about Summer 2013?? I don't think there's anything out there and won't be 'till Feb-March.

*ETA: Except of course, for the NALP report on the Fall 2011 recruiting season, which I think everyone knows about: http://www.nalp.org/march12_perspectives_pr

Schools could get the data together on the outcome of OCI much earlier than they do. They could have the Summer 2013 numbers now if they made it a priority. It is not that outrageous. I think they would prefer to have 0Ls in the dark while they are making their choices, though.

Oh absolutely I agree. All I meant is that the data's not available to us. Not that it's fair or that it couldn't be made available.

In fact, they already (and maybe prematurely) sent out an EIP questionnaire months ago.
