Did you apply on the website or through email?

If you networked during the school year, start following up about interviews, or ask if your connection can forward your resume to recruiting. Since many won't be coming to your OCI you want to get in before they are doing t14 OCIs and forget you exist. I had a bunch of pre OCI interviews at around this time last year. And was very happy with my results and skipped OCI.

Good luck. And God speed to all my fellow TTT warriors (and everyone else too)


Not sure if you will be able to see this, but if you do, would you be able to PM me? I am top 1-2% at a TTT and could really use some advice on this topic.

I was told by my career services office that a pre-OCI interview should take the place of your OCI screening interview, UNLESS the firm interviews separately for different cities. In that case, you may bid on the cities you did not have a pre-OCI interview for.

Are cocktail receptions invites in response to an email to a recruiter worth attending? Can I take this as a sign that the firm is interested or is the reception itself really the first step?

I posted earlier about a CB with Skadden (Mon 6/27). I applied online... Has anyone else had a CB and not heard anything since? What is the turnaround for summer? Am I screwed?

Based on the email asking for resumes? I was surprised they didn't ask for transcript

Debevoise has been making offers for the past week or so. Has been roughly 7-12 days from CB to offer.

This is the same Debevoise that only had two summer associates in DC in 2015?
