Fall 2013 - 2L OCI Results

Postby bk1 » Thu Sep 19, 2013 3:15 am

Compiled Data

4/4/14 Edit: The data has been sorted. Transfers have been split off. Then people are ranked by school and then by class rank. As a heads up, some categories have no data (e.g. there were no transfers to HYS that filled out the form). Note: I accidentally left the "Non-Transfer - Years of Work Experience" question from the form so that data is missing (though it is there for transfers).

Non-Transfers

Transfers

Source: Raw Data

Original Post Below

Fall 2013 - 2L OCI Results Input Form

This is a thread for inputting your 2L OCI results so that future classes can have some data regarding how people fared at OCI. Rather than use anon and then compile the data afterwards, Google forms simplifies the process. The data submitted is completely anonymous (the only thing I will receive other than the questions answered is the time at which you submitted them). Please only submit the form once you have completed OCI, meaning you either have struck out or have an offer in hand that you've accepted. Some may disagree with the way that I've grouped schools but I did it for simplicity's sake since it seemed to be the most conventional (I realize that other groupings may make more sense but this seemed to be the easiest way to do it to me). I know many people are still in the thick of OCI and it may last several more months for some. With that in mind I will release the data once their are sufficient responses so that people can take a look.

Thanks for participating.

9/21/13 edit: raw results data available here.

Since there seem to be a decent number of responses already, I've published the raw data (it will continuously update as people submit). I'll break them down into school groupings a few months from now.
