10+ OCI interviews
4 callbacks (V10; V25; V25; V100).
1 offer at a V25.
Process done, I feel very blessed.
I just don't understand how I can have nearly similar stats, yet have 15+ interviews in secondary markets only, no vault firms, and have 1 callback and 0 offers.
WTF am I supposed to do now?
I'm sorry. There is a reason why I said I felt blessed. I'm not sure where you're at, but at my Top 20, most people around the Top 20% got a mix of V50-100 and Midlaw firms at OCI... about 3-4 callbacks, and 0-1 offers. I would say the number of people with 1 offer is equal to the number of people with no offer. I wasn't "selected" during OCI by the V10, V25, V25 firms.
I completely struck out on mass emailing firms, including in my home state. I was nervous last week (before the offer came in) so I applied to about 50 government jobs. My contingency plan was to try to get a government/public interest gig in a specialized area of law, so that 3L year I'd be more marketable to firms that practice that type of law. Not saying that it is great advice, but that is what I was going to do.
In any case, I wish you (and everyone) the best of luck!
