Are you guys getting responses to your MM emails? Radio silence so far. I was kinda expecting responses, even if they're brush off "Yeah, thanks for your interest" type emails.

I've just been doing a "Hey, we didn't match in the bidding process, interested in your firm, here's two lines about my pre-LS background, resume attached." Doing it wrong?

This might be the wrong thread for this, but does anyone know of anyone who had submitted class preferences after the pre-registration deadline? I had a big slip up and didn't submit my preferences until about a day or two after the deadline. Any chance I'll still get some of my preferred classes?

My MM responses have been less than gratifying. Mostly, "thank you for your interest but..." or "look for us at OCIs..."

I sent out 100+ and have had 10-15 responses.

I think you're still okay. Someone recently sent out an email asking people to submit pre-registrations directly to them if they weren't able to get it through the normal deadline.

Random question: What do you do if you're walking up the room where your screener interview is and the door is shut? Assume you arrive a few minutes early and the door doesn't open by the time your interview slot is rapidly approaching. I only inquire about this cause I read a horror story post on ATL about a student who knocked then walked in and there was an interview going on, needless to say they didn't get a call back. Don't want to find myself facing a closed door and not know what the protocol is ...

You knock on the door at precisely the start time of your interview. Usually 1-3 minutes later, the interviewer will come out and let you in. A lot of the interview rooms will be adjacent to each other, so at interview start times, you'll hear a dozen people knocking on doors at exactly the same time. It's a little bit odd, but you have nothing to worry about. There is never any reason to walk into a room before being invited in.

Appreciate it, yea I'd never just walk into the room just want to not have the most stressful part of the process be before I even walk in the room. Thanks for the help

Just curious if Jones Day DC actually has more than 30% preselects overall. I know students from last year as well as this year who bid on them and get invited to an in-office screener on the same date as their interview date at EIW.

No firm has more than 30% pre-selects. The Jones Day in-office screeners are "off-OCI," unofficial screeners that Jones Day is able to do because it has access to the resumes of everyone who bid on the firm, not just of those who got the official interview. Several firms do the same because it allows them to interview everyone they actually are interested in, independent of the OCI lottery. And this in turns means that for those firms, those who get the interview through the lottery have a higher hurdle to clear to get the callback because there is more pre-selected, "favored" competition. Nothing that a good interviewer / hustler can't overcome, but it still feels like they're cheating a little bit.

My 2 cents.

Can someone from earlier years speak at to whether we can sort which firms have open slots for the open sign up period? Or do we have to scroll through "show all"? The manual doesn't speak to this issue.

We got an email last Wednesday I think that explained open sign ups, you have to scroll through show all and those with like a gray shade over the date have spots available or something. Check your inbox for it I remember it explaining it pretty well

Right. That reiterated what's in the manual. It doesn't say whether you can sort the gray shades to the top.

Anyone want to help me out and swap interview slots for Willkie Farr, Milbank, or Dechert (all NYC)? I have them all back to back and would love to spread them out.

EDIT: Sorry for the confusion, I'm trying to keep these firms, just wondering if anyone who has interviews with them is willing to do me a solid and swap interview time slots slots.

Hey guys. With just one week away, I wanted to briefly share the perspective of someone who went through this shitshow last year.

EIW will be stressful. It will make you worried and it will make you nervous and the waiting for callbacks and offers is awful. No matter how good your grades are, no matter how great your connections are at particular firms, the stress will be at the level you allow it to, which for most in law school means 'unhealthily high.'

But most importantly: you will survive this. And the vast majority of you will do very well. Just be normal, have regular conversations with the interviewers and don't preoccupy yourself with gaming the system. I wish you all a ton of luck this week and in the coming weeks for callbacks, and us few GULC 3Ls/alums will be happy to help in any way we can. Get your neurosis out on TLS and to your friends/SO's - it helps.

On a totally different self-promotional note - vote for me on this silly poll here in the Lounge:

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=249374&start=9875

Also you on-topics folk should check out the Lounge more often. Most of the people are awful, the discussion ranges from inane to offensive, but GULC is underrepresented.

How does open sign up work? Don't see a way to actually find open interviews.

Also thanks zack


Nm found it. Not much open in DC but seems to be a fair amount for other markets

Might be gone already, they went quick. But you'll see a grey box on the "Interview Dates" column if they have openings. The box looks like the "Cancel" box on the schedule page.

They went super fast. I was able to pick up Weil NY but all the other NY were gone by the time I returned to the bidding page.
