I always hear stories about this about one or two firms (WPRK, for instance), but even if they are true, if you want a realistic shot at those Pearson Specter firms, you should've gone to HLS
The other 160+ firms at OCI are up for grabs, so who cares.

Law school prep courses, for the most part, are a waste of time and money. Maybe if you get into the NU prep course for free, then that's worth going to, but other than that don't waste your time. Not much that you do over your 0L summer is going to directly translate into "getting an edge" for law school. It's a very different atmosphere when you are actually in class, and reading a cases will do nothing since you'll have no idea 1) what the takeaway point should be, 2) what your professor will want you to think about the case, 3) what cases you will even read as a 1L. Reading "primers" on different types of law are also useless because there is basically 0% likelihood of you understanding enough information accurately and quickly by self-studying as a 0L, and also 0% likelihood of you actually REMEMBERING it by the time you learn it in class. You only have like a month before school starts, just enjoy life.
This is 100% correct. Especially the liver part.
