Stanford Moving OCI to November

Post by Reese1 » Thu Jun 25, 2020 3:16 pm

It looks like Stanford is moving their OCI to late November. Do people think this will cause other schools to move theirs up? I know my school has ours at some point in January, and I doubt people are happy with Stanford doing this. If OCI isn't moved up, will we see a large number of students getting really aggressive with pre-OCI?

SLS is doing OCI in early December - not yet decided whether virtual or in person. Couldn’t make January work because of quarter system. Will have January 8 offer kick-off date. Shouldn’t cause other schools to accelerate, but we’ll see

This makes a lot more sense than what OP said. Agree that this doesn't seem like a big deal, and even if they were trying to jump the gun Stanford's so small and special (its grads get whatever west-coast jobs they want anyway) that it wouldn't cause a huge disruption.

This does make more sense. Thanks for chipping in. I am glad to hear that there is a Jan 8 kickoff date for offers. Although, I still wonder if we will see a lot of pre-OCI movement, regardless of exactly when schools set up OCI.

Neither the schools (for pandemic reasons) nor the firms (for grade and economic reasons) are particularly interested in moving up their OCIs. I don’t think there will be any pressure to do so out of a fear of getting left behind by earlier ones.
