Nope.

He had another good one, but it was at an interview he wanted to blow so it doesn't count.

Also in c/o 2013's defense 2 of those 5 resulted in CBs. One of the two CB turned into an offer.

There were some steps you had to take I think.

You missed show up legitimately still drunk from Sunday night drinking and shave at school in between interviews.

And sleep through interview because you just assumed it couldn't possibly be before 9:30 or otherwise you would have canceled it.

I don't think I've seen this answered on any of the other NU threads, but given that the NU TLS hive-mind is pretty solid, do you fine folks have a take on how OCI ended up for NU last year? OCS said 2011 was a tick above 2010 and expect another small uptick.

Do the vets here think that's accurate?

I think this year will be as good, or slightly better than, last year. As me to quantify that, and I will burn your house down.

I don't want you to quantify it, but could you put a number on it for me? kthxbai.

Edit: more importantly: whilst I gets a jerb?

Class schedule is out. Anyone taken IP with Francis? Thinking maybe that plus ITA.

ITA was good stuff. I actually enjoyed that class, especially if Bob Burns is still teaching ethics. That guy is the fucking man. So funny, humble, down to earth, and a great teacher.

If you know anyone taking ICM with Francis this summer, ask them about him.

So what is the recommended schedule if you take ITA since it's 10 credits but only 8 hours of class. Add one extra for 13 credits but 11 hours or add 2 for 16 credits but 14 hours?

I wouldn't recommend taking 16 credit hours first semester of 2L year. That semester is enough of a clusterfuck without killing yourself with class on top of it.
