so....is it acceptable to email the interviewers from OCI to ask where you are in the application process?

I'm asking since I imagine emailing the recruiting coordinators wont get much of a response cuz they're swamped with all sorts of email...I've called a couple and it seems almost impossible to reach them.

I've done this quite a bit recently. I'm targeting a smaller market, and I emailed my interviewers to say that I'll be in that area next week and would love a chance to interview at the firm's office there. My interviewers usually responded saying that they would forward my email to the proper recruiting personnel (some didn't respond at all). I sent maybe 10 emails to this effect and got 2 callbacks scheduled from it. Also got 2 dings, but hey, all you need is one.

Thanks! :D
I guess it makes sense since recruiting ppl are more likely to open an email from an attorney as supposed to the hoards of emails from students.

I'm curious how many firms people are waiting to hear from. I still have silence from 10 of my OCI firms, mostly in DC.

Sorry, but he also bragged about Law Review on Facebook within seconds of getting the call. Some people need a good shaming.


Ha. It took one search to figure out who this was!! Hope his fellow summer associates like working with him as he speaks for Penn's collegial and collaborative culture.

I thought chup was clear about telling you to tone down your anonymous passive-aggression?

Would you mind sharing the initials of the interviewer who called you?
