I highly recommend going if you have any interest in either firm for 2L summer; these programs are great for networking, and tend to give an enormous leg up either at OCI or during a pre-OCI interview (which these will often get you). And, let me tell you, skipping OCI is a beautiful, beautiful thing.

I'm pretty sure they have, but has Latham sent out all of their invites for the diversity conference?

Do you think this applies to different offices of these firms? The Jones Day conference is in NYC; would it give me a leg up if I'm shooting for the LA or DC office?

No not for 1L positions, just the diversity conference.

I got a very nice phone call rejection from Baker Botts Dallas after a callback a couple weeks ago (why would a firm do this? Lol) and I know a couple classmates that got fast track offers from Haynes and Boone Dallas a couple weeks ago.

It's so that you don't think badly of them come OCI - they don't want to lose you as a candidate, especially if you made it all the way to callbacks.
