I'm not just ragging on you. The whole culture of "go to TLS and autstically write down the CBs you are receiving" is toxic.

Cb and offer from Quinn. Had an interview with 5 managing partners. I got to do a secret screener for top students. Tough interview but I did okay. John (we're on a first name basis now) personally delivered the offer yesterday to my doorstep. Not bragging. Just for information sharing. Hope OCI is fun I think I'll be sitting out!


This is stupid. I already made clear I didn't mean it that way.

If a firm is coming to OCI, can we mass mail their other office locations that are not interviewing for OCI?

Got 1-7, 12-17 and 21 (14 total). I hope I can still get at least 1-2 of my 8-11 firms. Are the only ones available for open sign-ups firms in secondary markets whose schedules aren't full?

ETA: ^I missed Proskauer at 8. Got DPW at 4.

Right now that's all that will be available but as people drop interviews they will go to open sign ups

So how likely are we to get firms that we are waitlisted for? Also, how is the waitlist prioritized, is it random or is it based on your original bid? sorry if this has already been asked to death.

Should we be opting-in for each firm we can? And then deal with the scheduling conflicts it will create later?

Got STB at 12.

Missing Katten at 6 is crazy, for future reference bid high or don't bid.

Can I email the firms that I bid on and didn't get an interview with? Or is it too soon? Something like:

"I really like your firm but didn't get an interview, here's my resume, can we work something out?"

As far as I can remember, simplicity won't let you overlap interviews, so you can't pick up interviews which conflict with ones you already have. Is that what you mean?

So I only got 12 screeners but I got the ones I really wanted. Also had a couple of pre-OCI callbacks at two of my top 5. After the open signups I should be furiously massmailing the ones I missed, right? Or should I wait until after the hospitality suites?

I was wondering about this as well. Do we still mass mail the firms we're planning to stop by their hospitality suites?
