Yes. I wasn't there, and this is all just anecdotal, but every 2L I've talked with about it said it was very hard. I know a few good students who got no offers. A lot of 2Ls are working in non-firm jobs this summer because of it.
This year: it's probably going to be better than last year, but still really tough. No one actually knows how it will be, but that is the most frequently heard prediction.
Note: It seems like the 2008 OCI was even worse. Not only were offers hard to get, but a lot of people who worked as associates that summer didn't get job offers when the summer ended. That happened to a 3L who tutored me last semester -- like most of the tutors working for Student Affairs, he was one of the best students at Michigan in terms of grades. He got 2 offers, and after finishing work as a summer associate, didn't get a job offer.
