I'm sensing a ton of animosity and dismissive attitude here against OCS. I guess that you 3L's and above say this from personal experience? For me, I'm finding that I get a lot more help from 2L's and above than from OCS. At first, I thought it was b/c I didn't know what I was doing, but now you're confirming that we're really alone here?
Another question is, what can OCS do to those who violate a mass-mailing "policy"??
What can OCS do? Nothing. What are they going to make you do, no-show your interview? Turn down an offer?
The attitude towards OCS comes from a lot of people having poor experiences with them. In my case, my career advisor left months prior to OCI and the school never bothered to replace him. When they did, it was with someone who wasn't a career specialist who gave very poor advice to numerous people regarding bid lists, and was all but worthless with outside of OCI job search tips. Granted, it ended up well for most of those people and me, but the experience was pretty piss poor nonetheless.
Why should you go out of your way to help them if they won't return the favor? Talk to people here and at school who have actually been there.
This. I was in this group as well. And I can tell you I know a few people who were actually hurt by this person's advice.
