Because this was probably "late" in the Pre-OCI process, my guess would be they will wait until people from your school conduct their DPW callbacks and then compare you against them.

Any success reaching out to firms for those of you who had pre-OCI callbacks and the firm has said they would get back at some point after your school's OCI?

Wondering if they may speed up the process if you let them know you have other offers and would like the potential opportunity to do another visit before making a decision. Or would this backfire?

I parlayed a connection with a partner into a pre-OCI interview with a firm, but haven't heard back from them (it's been a couple weeks). Would it be appropriate to e-mail the partner reiterating my interest and asking for a timeline, or is that a question that should be directed to the recruiting contact?

I have a skype screener with Warner Norcross (West Michigan). So some of the West Michigan firms might be about to start
