Anyone know if they have a room block booked for accommodations with a convention rate or if we are on our own to find a place to stay?

They said in the materials that there is not a room block reserved - you're on your own for finding accommodations. Plenty of good choices in Chicago though!

Anyone know how the selection process worked? Was the lottery based off of employer alternates or was it 100% random?

Random thought, just in case anyone is in a similar situation to mine last year:

I only got like two interviews from the CCBA job fair, and they weren't from the traditionally most sought after firms. Because of that, I thought I looked bad on paper, and that OCI was going to go badly. I ended up more than just fine.

The point: don't use your "popularity" or lack thereof with CCBA employers as a sign of how well/badly OCI will go.

people from previous years said if you emailed CCBA and asked whether you were pre-selected or lotteried, CCBA would tell you. i tried it this year to no avail. just a heads up :/

I think it just depends on what you selected. I did a lot of ohio, michigan, wisconsin, and kentucky companies/firms and received the max of 8 interviews. Didnt really focus on chicago firms and wasnt suprised that I didnt get a single one. Anyone know what to expect from as far as them asking for materials? I know some firms prefaced that they want certain items but I find it hard to believe that some dont want transcript. Also, has anyone heard of potential employment prospects resulting from this career fair?

7 interviews. All V50 Chicago. But that could be based off lottery since it's not clear at all. T20 school, Chicago experience.

Felt pretty good about mine but it seems like a pretty competitive fair/group of candidates so who even knows.

Anyone heard back yet? I'm guessing some decisions will start coming this week or next, right?
