If the school found out I am pretty sure they won't let you interview with them at oci (multiple of these violations could lead to no oci for you at all. These rule recitations are from memory, read guidelines/talk to your CSO to be sure). Someone figure out for certain if QE is doing oci or not before sending them anything.
This is incorrect in so far as there are plenty of students who interview with firms who come to OCI before OCI begins. You're 100% allowed to interview with the 1L SA firms you interviewed with that have extended early CBs to you without any fear of breaking NALP rules (there are none on point) or pissing off CSO (they have their own interests to protect but generally you have to be egregious to get "banned" from OCI). This often requires sending them your updated resume again and saying, "pls hire me." Furthermore, firms will often times just hand out interviews to you early -- Sidley Austin Chicago did this last year for the students who were in their "summer mentorship" program and a couple of NYC firms just gave me straight CBs. So while it may seem weird to e-mail firms who are definitely coming to OCI that you can definitely bid on just know that if an opportunity does arise don't feel like you shouldn't take it.
Perhaps we should wait for someone who massmailed to comment here? It seems late to start massmailing sometime after ~July 27th after bid results come out.
