Also received the Sidley email -- ranked them high though so have no idea if it indicates firm interest

Not here, but they were low on my bid list. Did you do the Pre-OCI hustle for them, or just bid on 'em?


I didn’t do pre-oci for Sidley. They were ranked somewhere in the middle of my bid list-neither particularly high nor low.



Stats?

Top 25...probably around Top 15 or so. No LR but secondary journal.

Having been through OCI at Fordham last year, I can assure you that the Sidley email is purely for the sake of gathering demographic info.

No problem. I know how stressful this is for everyone. If anyone has any specific questions I'll do my best to help out.

Got that too. I'm sure it doesn't really mean anything...though I guess we will find out Thursday.

I bid mostly 2+, with around 1/3rd 1. Fingers crossed for interviews and callbacks. Do we know when we should be getting interview notifications? I've turned off CPC emails because they're rivaling the Fordham Barnes & Noble for levels of spam


I'm the quoted anon. Just looked at my calendar, and I've got 19 interviews. I got my 1-10, and then a smattering from my 11-35. Hope this helps, future readers!

That is neither helpful nor supportive.

OP (of this mini-thread). Opt-in to EVERYTHING and sign up for the greeter program. Also, if you haven't been mass-mailing start NOW! Good luck- I'm rooting for you!

Is there a way to know if you were designated as an "alternate"?

You have to opt-in to interviews and see if you're selected when finals schedules are released next Thursday. Either way, they won't tell you if you were an alternate or if you got opted-in via lottery.
