Considering below median at a T14 isn't a good place to be, if I were you I wouldn't expect a thing out of OCI. If you still want a firm job concentrate on mass mailing as much as you can.

Is the OCI on a pre-select system?

You may get an interview or two I'd bet an inordinant amount that but no biglaw firm will touch you absent some sort of extraordinary circumstance such that ou could get a job there outside OCI (your mom/dad is friends with the hiring partner).

Friends with hiring partner probably wouldn't be enough. Would need to be something like child of firm's biggest client.

Well if it's 50% lottery and you bid all NYC and get lucky, you'll get some interviews. And once you're in the interview room, you never know what'll happen. Work on your interview skillz. Do practice interviews if your CSO holds them. The others are right; you're a long shot. But it can happen.

Essentially zero. If you want a firm job only and you are not going to school for free, you should drop out.
