I am at a T14 and struck out at OCI, and it is absolutely devastating. I am MMing and trying to keep the light alive by having a few small firm interviews down the road lined up, but it is tough; really tough. I consider myself as someone with very strong motivation and someone that does not get "depressed" easily, at all.
However, sitting in class and hearing classmates talk to each other: "Yeah, I have a Gibson Dunn offer but I'm still waiting on Skadden. How are you doing? " "Great, accepted my offer yesterday at Jones Day -- hard to focus now on class haha" is crushing.
I'm sitting there listening to this, jealous as could be, depressed, mad, confused, totally unmotivated to listen in class.
You're not alone brother.
I am experiencing this exact same thing at UT.
Fellow student: "Oh my god, I am so frustrated."
Me: "What's wrong?"
Fellow student: "I am trying to convince Baker Botts to let me split my summer and they being stubborn."
Me: "Ohhh, yeah. Sorry to hear that......"
OP, I and thousands of others are feeling a similar pain. If it helps, as said above, you are definitely not alone. Keep mass mailing and be strong. As for seeking out psychiatric help, you can only benefit.
