My question was how much of a hit I (or anyone else) should expect to take from not really having great work experience going through OCI. It seems like the answer is some but not a lot?
What kind of job are you looking for? Something unicorn like or biglaw NYC?
I'd be fine with NYC, SF, or Chicago. I am having trouble parsing the sarcasm from the real feedback in this thread. Opinions seem to range from "you'll settle for Cravath" to "you'll be at a real disadvantage over your peers." Could people with actual experience (personal or anecdotal) weigh in on the effect of being k-jd?
The reason behind the sarcasm is that you have the ideal position for big law hiring: top 15% at YHS. I think a lot of people mean that your lack of work experience is barely going to affect you. Good luck at OCI, OP.
