To everyone who is getting accepted:

If you need a seat-deposit extension, just ask for it. Joanna was the one emailing me and she gave me a 7 day extension. It may help those in the runnings for other places, or those, like me, who were unable to come up with $1,200 in 7 days lol

Dang you can't participate in the OCI process, that sucks. Congrats though! What are you going to do?

Would it be worth it to go if no OCI?

I think they still let transfers do OCI, but you just miss the bid deadline.

don't really know enough about your situation. i wouldn't. OCI is important to me and i wouldn't rely on the lottery. my school has a lottery and i'm quite grateful that i'm relying on class rank and not my name getting drawn from a hat with 100s of others.

Just met with OCS and what it means is if a firm gets 21 interviews and 100 bids, they pick 30% out of those resumes they definitely want. Then the rest of the apps are throw into a lottery and chosen and if you are the 20th resume and you picked them 2, you could potentially get screwed.

If you're coming in from a t20 school, and you're ranked top 25%... then I wouldn't move. 1. you have connections where you're at; t20 and t14 isn't that big of a deal, 2. esp since you can't fully participate in the OCI process. and 3. you'll lose your gpa.

I agree with markdg90s. Prob not worth it to lose GPA at current school.

I got WL this morning. What do you guys think my chances are of getting off the WL? Should I write a LOCI?
