Only got my top 1 choice. Ugh.
EDIT: And my #5 choice that I randomly signed up for and was planning on dropping - advanced legal writing or something like that.
EDIT EDIT: Fuck the bidding system. And fuck having to do that during OCI without having any idea of how we should bid to not be screwed.
Those results should be more or less typical, and there just isn't as much strategy for bidding for classes as there is for OCI. It'll usually be hard to get more than your first and/or second choice, especially if you're bidding on seminars or popular lectures. When you've got 400 2Ls + 3Ls and 70 LLMs all bidding on maybe 20 desirable seminars, chances are high that anything you bid at 3 or lower (or even 2 or lower) has at least 20 people bidding it higher.
And compared to last year, the lectures are significantly underenrolled - maybe people all bid seminars high this quarter, which would have made getting into seminars even harder than usual.
