If you have pre-selects, it should say accept/decline under the invitations column.

I have accepted mine, but after it gives me no option to select a timeslot.

I'm on the same boat - I've accepted but i don't see any interview time slots. Have others been able to sign up for interview slots yet?

You can’t select timeslots; they’ll assign you to slots and release the interview schedule sometime after they run the lottery.

I have also accepted but can't view any timeslots to sign up for an interview. Has anyone been able to sign up for interview slots yet?

So it seems no one got WSGR, Goodwin, Jones Day, W&C, Reed Smith and DLA Piper yet?
Anything you can do now to increase the chances?

How about alternates?

This is a dumb question -- do a lot of Stanford/Berkeley students go to this event? Or is it really for out-of-town diverse students who are doing their 1L internship in the bay area to get to connect with bay area firms prior to OCI?

Yes, a lot go. But there are also folks who are from the Bay or want to work in the Bay who attend. Do people with no connection to the Bay fly out for the fair? I'd say no.

Anyone who got the lottery, would you kindly let the others know?
It was supposed to be out yesterday but it seems they are running late?
Our school OCI is due today and I am really hoping to get BADF results to decide how I am bidding for OCI.....

Thank you and good luck to all.

Resident conspiracy theorist here--just kidding, sort of, but I did notice some changes:

So yesterday the 'Estimated 2L slots' went from being nonzero numbers to (mostly) being 0s right around 9am. I don't know if this means the lottery ran or they just divvied out the preselect and alternate spots, but the website at least did something yesterday.

That said, I didn't receive any lottery sign-up, any confirmation that my alternates were accepted or anything else so ya, if anyone did get anything speak now pls

also I'm low key tempted to reach out to the organizer and be like hi could we get some info here (I, too, have bids due soon for school OCI) but I've also kind of bothered them enough already about transcript stuff (quarter school probz) so if anyone else wants to do it the organizers are very nice :lol:

I cannot see any schedule even if I just got an email saying all the schedules are out. I did accept pre-select.
Do anybody have this problem?
I hope I do not lose any interview.

Update: just got the schedule!

I also got an email from the organizer saying that final schedules have been released on the “Scheduled Interviews” tab, but I don’t see anything there.

Update: nevermind, mine is up now.

Not verified, but I believe they ran lottery with firms you initially bid on. I got an interview with Orrick, even though I was not preselected to interview with them, nor was I given an alternate interview.
