BADCF is pre-select so how you rank doesn't matter. Be careful with this fair. From my experience and that of my peers, people tend to do better at their school's OCI than they do at BADCF, especially if you're at median. You don't want to interview with a firm that has a one interview policy and not get a callback when have better odds at your OCI.
