Also, I had 2 questions:

1) Does it hurt you to participate as a non-URM, rather than waiting for regional recruiting or your school's OCI?

2) Does interviewing with a firm as part of the diversity fair foreclose you from then trying to interview with them again later at OCI?

Thanks!

It seems like interest tapered off because it was so stupidly competitive last year.

As to the second question, there does seem to be a few firms that don't want you to interview if they come to your OCI. Latham and Jones Day specifically called it out in their descriptions. I wound up not bidding on any firms that had that little "No multiple interviews" icon just to be safe.

That's helpful, thanks!

Just to clarify, interest in the forum tapered off because posters were so competitive? Or interest in the fair tapered off, because the job market was so competitive?

Job market, but this is baseless speculation tbh. I just remember people not really getting a lot of callbacks outside of a few with pretty ridiculous stats/URM status.
