I'm still waiting on my penn decision, but I fear I'll be in the same boat with you. Hopefully I'm not dinged 3 minutes from now.

To those attending, where are you (planning on) living? Center City? University City? Other?

Dinged. 6% at T40. Probably one bad second semester grade and a mediocre personal statement that got me.

I am still undecided if I am attending, but I went to Penn undergrad and am leaning towards Penn over UCLA. I think Center City would be better than University City. One nice place is Domus in University City and is literally across the street from the law school. Otherwise, I don't know of many other good options in University City that are ideal for law students.

No, but that would be very helpful! I would be interested in the number of DC employers coming to OCI.

Does anyone know how transfers have done at OCI in the recent past?

Once I got my deposit in and all, I called CPP and asked them how to get started. It's all due for transfers by Aug 8.

Can you view the employers now that you paid the deposit?

i got a logon to symplicity pretty quickly after they got my deposit. That was before the regular bidding deadline, so OCI may be different for you all.

I only meant they might send you the list of employers and/or have you do an excel spreadsheet of bids instead of using symplicity. not trying to scare anyone!

Oh, haha. I thought you meant limited as in terms of what we could bid on.
