-Hey man, how's law school treating you?
-Not bad, just wrapped up summer recruiting stuff and about to start classes up again.
-Oh cool, how was recruiting? (Or, what will you be doing?)
Responding with where you will be is not bragging even if you're surrounded by a bunch of other people in this social setting.
It's how the topic comes up. If it comes up naturally, in that kind of conversation, then yeah. You're practically responding to a question about how your OCI went. If you walk into some law school gathering at a bar and announce "YO EVERYONE, I GOT AN OFFER AT SKADDEN WOOOOOOOOO BEERS ARE ON ME" then... yeah that's a bit different. (WTF like two people scooped me on this, is everyone's Monday that slow or something?)
I struck out at OCI myself way back in the day in the late 2000/early 2010s. I never really had a negative view of those who talked about where they'd be summering/going after 3L, etc., but that might be because practically everyone was pretty low key about it. I did really hate the fucker that bragged about not giving a fuck about law school because he was just going to join his family's law firm back home after graduation, though.
