I don't have any official statistics, but by speaking with fellow OCI'ers, it seems like the offer rate is comparable to last year. I believe about 20% will get jobs through EIW. Sucks, huh?

Seems like it was the same as last year. Maybe slightly worse.

There are still some mid size firms making decisions in the next week or two. Also, I will be withdrawing an offer from a big firm so hopefully it goes to a Fordham student

i've withdrawn a few offers from big firms and haven't heard of it having any effect on fordham students. don't mean to be a downer, but i'm not sure if that's how it works.

Of course there is no way of knowing whether your spot will go to a Fordham student, but the firm will fill the vacated spot in most instances. This holds especially true for firms with small classes. This year has been so brutal for a large contingent of our classmates, I hope they can snag some of the offers that are being vacated in the next couple of weeks.

I'm hoping we hit 20%. I think last year was 22% through EIW.
Doesn't feel good. I know a handful of top 1/3's who ended up fine, even one or two outside, but quite a few top 25%s who did not come away with anything... disheartening
