I felt fine about it. I didn't expect anything other than what I got, which was a decent talk about how Northwestern helps you find your job (3 career counselors + a PI + an LLM counselor, you can't talk to them until Dec. 1 per NALP rules, OCI exists, etc) and where people go (everywhere).
A Northwestern degree already is pretty portable, honestly. Seems to me that the midwestern T14s put a lot of students all over the country. I have no idea how much of this is self selection though.
Bill did talk about how, when they saw that they had a larger than usual volume of California applicants a few years ago, they went on the road to visit some Californian firms and let them know what Northwestern is all about. He says this kind of targeted road show has a meaningful impact on firms' likelihood to come to OCI, if they didn't already. Also, registration for OCI this fall is up compared to last year.
