you seem very nice, but you stress me the fuck out with your urgency.


Although, I'd like to know this too.

Gotta. :roll:

You repeated yourself in your post. Is there some other explanation, like a copypasta malfunction?

Really? Can't you find other things to do with all your nervous energy? Learning more about firms, groups, writing CLs?

This should really be the least of your worries. The only thing I ever knew about my screeners was their practice area and law school to see if they went to NU. Plus screeners can change the day of. Even at CBs I would get schedules of who I was meeting with and would sometimes show up and the whole schedule was changed. You need to chill out. Go have a drink.

ETA: there is nothing you are going to research about them that can't be done day of or night before.

Every morning you'll go up to the big room and check because interviewers change all the time. Firm bios don't have that much info that it takes that much time to look up who people are and get a sense of what they do, just bring your smartphone/tablet/laptop.

IIRC, the OCI FAQ (look in Symplicity, under Resources, I think) said names of interviewers are often posted only the day before.

Just to confirm, our webID logins will work on the Wieboldt wifi, yes?

Yes, but I recommend that you don't spend that much time in Wieboldt except for your interviews. The "stew room" is an awful, stress-filled sort of hell.

I just worry about getting all sweaty running around in my suit in the humidity, but I guess even I can make it from the atrium without ending up a hot mess.

Hopefully.

How do we present whatever documents (transcripts, writing sample, updated resume, etc.) to the OCI interviewer? Is just a stack of papers ok, or should we get a bunch of the purple folders?

At least paperclip or staple them together. Alternatively you could present them a manila folder with all those things in it.

I went with a paper clip. Related note: go to student services and get an official copy of your transcript, then make copies of that transcript so everything is on one page and tidy, at least better than handing them a 4 page printout from caesar.

My favorite pre-OCI activity is stressing over minutia and compounding my neuroses by reading anything lgleye posts in this thread.

Q: Didn't bid on Chi at all during OCI, not returning till OCI starts - should I mass-mail Chi firms at a certain time, or just ASAP? Sorry if this has already been asked.

ASAP. Let them know when you'll be in town to meet with them.

What is the point of the Calendar tab in Symplicity if not to display your interviews? Because all mine shows is my exception time blocks.

Do we have to use the same OCI resume (i.e. not including journal) for submissions on the Jobs/Resume Requests tab?

Should I bother requesting reciprocal access to the job listings on Lewis & Clark's symplicity? It's $30.

Just noting that some of my interviewers have been added to the Symplicity schedules. Of course entirely subject to change etc. but figured some people here would want to know.

It'll be fine. You're outside for like five seconds getting from the law school to Weiboldt. Just make sure you have a rain plan every day for coming to school. That's what screwed me, and I lived two blocks away.
