So I'm thinking whether I should include those 14 firms on my OCI bidding list? Would that give me a second chance to be considered for any interviews? Yes, I have a strong technical background.

Thanks!


Are you saying your grades "plummeted" such that you are now top quarter at a T14?...

Regardless, if you don't get the CB from Chicago after your "plummeted" grades, take the hint and let a classmate use the OCI slot, bc it won't do you any good. If a firm didn't extend a CB after a tech-oriented fair, why would the same firm extend a CB later from OCI?



Thank you very much! Our school does not really give out ranks so I don't know exactly what rank I'm holding. I only have a vague sense of it based on the four categories of GPA ranges that our CSO put us into for bidding strategy purposes (and I assume each category roughly correlates to a quarter of the rankings...?)

I think I'm not quite confident bc I just don't have any idea what's the pool of candidates with similar backgrounds attending PLIP this year. I have a master's degree in Biomedical Sciences and three years of working experience in a biotech company (midsize one, not any of those big names such as Merck or Eli Lily). I've heard that quite some ppl having PHDs in Biology are looking for IP positions as well...


There's always a decent number of people with PhDs at PLIP, particularly in the life sciences. It's highly preferred at a lot of firms, if not a requirement. Either that or a grad degree with work experience, which you have. So don't let that get your confidence down.



Thank you! As of today I've got 2 rejections and 4 callbacks, and waiting for the result of the other 9 interviews there. Crossing my fingers.

Can you update what firms were rejections and which were callbacks?

I received an Axinn CB during my interview and was told by my interviewer I would receive more information regarding the call back. However, I haven't heard from Axinn since the screener. Has anyone heard from them?

I had the same situation with Vedder last year. I received the callback information, strangely enough, via regular mail about a week later. So just fyi, make sure you're checking your mail

One of the previous posters - I received an email a few hours after the interview from a recruiter at the firm. I would check spam / any other folders you sort mail into. If nothing, wait like another day and check physical mail, then just contact the interviewer directly.

Is anyone going to do OCI in addition to having done PLIP? Or anyone who did this last year?
