Figured since most interview results are out it was time to make this thread. Please post how OCI went for you and any updates you might have about firms as we move through the process. As a reminder, you can post a reply to this thread anonymously. The more specific you are, the more useful the data.

Stats: Top third, secondary journal
Litigation/Corporate/Other/Unsure: Lit all the way

EIP: 18 screeners, 4 alts
Dallas walkaround: 2 / 5
MCGC (Houston): 2 / 7
Direct Applications: 1 / dozens so far

Got a few stray screeners at the other MCGCs and SEMW but not enough to make me wanna go

I have one really bad outlier grade dragging me way down, dunno how firms view that fwiw

Most of my EIW screeners are in STL and other comparable midwestern mkts. I'm fine with staying in the midwest and don't have strong ties anywhere. Not URM.

The one direct app success is a straight-to-CB with a STL firm

MCGC (DC): 0/0
