Thats been my experience, but if one were to offer an interview before OCI then this whole process would be worth it.

Probably context dependent - if you are in their city over the summer and go to law school out of the city definitely mass mail, they may be inclined to save the travel costs. If you go to their reception or have a name to drop, definitely mass mail even if theres a high chance they say just do OCI. If you go to school in the same city or if you are asking them to fly you out they are almost certainly going to say just do OCI but who cares mass mail anyway.

Nixon:
For those that say they had a "screener" at Nixon DC(?), how and where did the screeners take place? Were you invited to their office this week?
Anyone get offers from them?

There were no Nixon screeners this week. Nixon is doing screening at a social event on Monday. At this event they will determine who they want for callbacks.

Furthermore callbacks today at Kirkland

Going forward, can we all be specific about which office at these firms, and where applicable, post stats and approximate date of application?

Anyone have pre-OCI at Paul Weiss NY, Davis NY and Proskauer NY? Totally lost on how to handle this process, figure out what to do and how to prep for interviews.
