Since no one knows exactly what the percentages are, it's more helpful to say "10 H" than "top 10%"

To be fair, until EIP results come in most people have no idea how good they actually are at interviews.

Also, there's something to be said for evaluating firms, as well. I learned a lot more about firms even from just screeners than I did from websites/basic research.

3L OCI is worth it for anyone who doesn't like their 2L position.

I know a good number of people who switched firms after their 2L summer, some of whom were motivated by better grades. OCI is meh, but keep an eye on Symplicity, submit resumes to firms you hear may be interested in 3Ls, and talk to your friends at firms, if you have some.

2H/8P (Hs were in elective and LRW), minimal work experience, community college
All NYC
21 Screeners
8 CBs
8 accepted
6 offers (1 V15, 2 V20s, 1 V50, 2 V100)

Moral of the story for those interviewing in upcoming years : For NYC, grades are important, until they're not, which is like....always (except for certain V10 firms).
Interviewing aptitude, smiling, and speaking coherently about your experiences and goals trump almost all else.
