OCI Screeners Possible?

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Jul 24, 2014 10:46 pm

I was wondering if you could tell me if I have a chance at OCI screeners or if I should start mass mailing. I have applied and still waiting to hear back from all. I applied broadly but skipped a lot of top firms knowing I would not be considered.

T4 to T2 transfer
Top 1/3 ranking
Invited onto Law Review at old school
No work experience or IP

Looking at NY/DC/MA area

You haven't started mass mailing and you transferred from a TTTT?

No screeners. You should massmail.

Really doesn't seem like it. Mass mail, network in your home state with small firms and local government.

Why did you transfer? I'm not trying to be mean spirited by any means, but I don't understand lateral transfers (unless you go to like Cooley or Ave Marie or something). TT is not much different than TTT or TTTT in terms of student quality or employment outcomes. I hope you are paying less and have more connections in the new area. Good luck and yes, mass mail, but a more effective strategy will be clerking with a firm during the school year and hoping for an offer upon graduation.

It's not an either/or proposition. You have a chance at getting some OCI screeners and no matter what you should be mass mailing like crazy.
