because so far the answer is "nowhere"

I LOVE Calvin Klein's suits at Macys.

I've also found some good stuff at Burlington/ Stein Mart, but for a full matching OCI suit, I like Calvin. The pants have really nice side pockets. And fake pockets on the back, which make my butt look not so gigantic.

although this might be 0 for schools where firms actually come to your school to interview


Think of it as an investment haha. Also, a lot of these posters turned down big scholarship money to go to a school where firms visit.

I had an interview in NY earlier this summer. Ended up going out with a friend and taking a $138 uber home at 3 am. What do you think they would say if I tried to expense it

They're talking about screeners, which also confused me.

Has anyone considered starting a Class of 2018 OCI results spreadsheet and thread for anons and poasters to use? I would do it, but I learned to use the famed google docs, litrally, last month, so I'd probably be a bad choice. Plus 65+ hour weeks are basically causing me to cry rn.

you da bomb

Here's last year's thread with the spreadsheet linked in the first post. It probably won't get much activity until August/September, but it'd be cool to track results as they go IMO.

Looking at that thread I (personally) think there is more value in something that can be continuously updated, and as self-appointed creator I get to make that choice :)

Do you (or anyone) think that the form-input system he used is better than just an accessible spreadsheet (I personally do like the tamper-proofness).

I'm thinking I'll just essentially copy that form submission method but get people to choose some sort of moniker for their data and then when they put in an updated data they can just reenter their moniker and and update firms. Does that make sense/do you think it would work?

I just think a system like 2014's will be largely useless for up-to-date information since people won't start updating until they have accepted an offer.

The tamper-proof is nice, but i think at least test-drive the accessible one like you mentioned. It'd be easier in the long run

I decided to go with a form mainly because I figured I would want to not share the raw data (or at least not just that) but a some cleaned up stuff anyways and the uniformity of a form response works better for that.

Feel free to play around with it at the moment (but don't take any serious effort in) I am going to clear responses and post in a new thread tomorrow I guess so any feedback etc. from anyone appreciated.

I will then just periodically push a cleaned up and tabled excel sheet because I cannot stand working in google sheets.

The rate of success my massmailing has equated to is lower than the likeliness of the U.S. winning a soccer game in Rio this year.

Still nothing on my end either. 93 emails - no interviews.
