Are interview spots showing up for those of you with less than 11 bids?

I already picked up two from the waitlist, but I don't know how it works.

I have like 3 i'd like to drop, but I missed the last drop period. Tomorrow, when I can drop again.. is there just a button beside the firm name that says "drop" or "cancel" or something?

You have to go under "scheduled interviews" and then click on the date above the firm name and then there's a "drop" button on that page.

Would also be interested to know this. Also, how does a pre-EIW interview work? How do you get selected?

Don't know anything about Detroit. As for pre-EIW interviews, you should apply directly. Email the primary recruiting person (contact info is usually on NALP or the firm's website - symplicity is usually out of date). Realistically, you are only going to get a pre-EIW interview if you are summering in the city you are applying to. That said, given that we are so close to OCI, I'm not sure how likely it is firms will do pre-EIW interviews for people that apply cold.

Yea, I think you've missed any chance at Pre-OCI interviews. I was able to get 5 pre-oci interviews, but I was applying in June.

When is the next drop period? I think I was a bit overzealous when picking up interviews.

FYI there are still a fair number of open sign up spots.

Do you mean the "cancel" button? I just want to be sure there's not some sort of difference (ex maybe the "cancel" button allows the interviewers to see you canceled on them...?).

No worries it's the same button. I just wasn't looking at the screen at the time.

Does anyone else find it a little ridiculous that you can't both add *and* drop interviews on the same day?

Hi all. I know this is a bit early, but I'm a transfer that will be doing OCI but I'm not familiar with the campus and won't be moving to AA until just before OCI. I see on my interview schedule the locations are listed as C##-###. I know OCI will be at the lawyers club but I'm confused to what the letter C means. Are there multiple buildings to walk between? I have several back-to-backs and I'm worried about having to go in between buildings.

It's no big deal. Lawyers club is two connected buildings, Cook and Munger. The C stands for Cook. The only time you'll have to walk a tiny bit is if you have something in South Hall. That is across the street.

I think part of the mandatory meeting next Monday is an optional tour of the lawyers club for those who aren't familiar with the layout.

Were those pre-oci interviews Detroit or a different market?

Has anyone had success picking up extra screeners from firms you bid on but missed?

Better to MM firms that are participating in your OCI or no?

If you're interviewing on campus, it'd be a waste of everyone's time. If you're not, go for it.

When OCI is a week away it doesn't seem super appropriate. Like, the pre-OCI mm ship may have sailed already for firms that are coming. What would be the point? If you mean reaching out to firms you didn't get interviews with, just hit them up at OCI in person.
