Bump. The OP has been updated with sorted responses.

I've sorted the responses first by transfer/nontransfer, then by school rank, and then by class rank. Thanks to everyone who submitted their data. Sadly it seems to get less and less each year (though hopefully that means that there are fewer people going to law school which would be a plus). Good luck to current 1Ls who will be going through OCI in the fall.

I'll probably start a thread for it later in the fall once a decent number of people know their results.
