How did everyone do with pre-selects? I got a low amount considering my grades

3.45, 6yrs work experience, secondary journal, 1L SA, DC/NY
10 Pre-selects
11 Alternates

I'm happy with the result, but surprised about how uneven it was. I got 1 preselect and 2 alts from 1* firms, but dings at several firms I had networked with in my GPA band.

Most of those dings were for offices with 20 screener slots. Pretty sure the lottery will even out the results a little.

Median with no work experience, bid major markets

6 Pre-selects
10 alternates

I bid really conservatively, so not sure how a lot of the lower tier NYC firms did not give me a pre-select

UVA 2018 grad. Just checking in to say good luck!

I was really really disappointed when I got my preselect list because almost none of the firms I was interested in were on the list. I even called Kdon freaking out. At the time he reassured me, I didnt believe him, but in the end he was right. I ended up with interviews with all of my top 7 firms and got offers from 5. And I was targetting DC and another difficult insular market with pretty bare bones ties. Basically, my advice is (1) trust the process, (2) trust Kdon, (3) trust yourself, (4) make sure you're prepared so you're ready when an opportunity presents itself.

Also called career services freaking out after my pre-selects.

Thanks for the reassurance, lets hope the lottery comes through!

Rising 3L here. Good luck everyone.

Trust in the system - things tend to work out in the end, even if it seems hopeless at the time. And this should go without saying, but try to be conscious of your classmates who may not be doing as well as you during OGI.

Good luck everyone. Keep going at it until you have an offer in hand. For some that will take longer than others but don’t get discouraged, everyone who keeps at it will get a job.

How’s everyone feeling? Do many people have pre-OGI offers?

Radio silence on my end. Mainly NYC firms. I'm guessing there will be a lot of movement tomorrow for Monday's interviews

Will firms always let you know if you’re no longer being considered for a callback?

I think it depends. Some will ding via email or letter but I think if you end up on a sort of waitlist, you won't really hear back

If you get invited to Willkie reception is that a CB? It’s kind of ambiguous
