Job Search / Re: Declining Callback interviews
« on: September 03, 2007, 01:55:11 PM »
I'd bet this is one of the rare situations, where you should ask the career services office at your school.  I'm sure there are some NALP guidelines on this.  It must come up pretty often, so the career services people should know how yo handle it.

Current Law Students / Re: Where to put luggage during callbacks?
« on: August 29, 2007, 08:49:17 PM »
I had a callback today and left my bag at the hotel.  I got the feeling it would've looked strange to bring my luggage to the office.  Plus, after the interviews were over I was able to change out of my suit back at the hotel so the flight home would be more comfortable.  That was definitely a plus.

Job Search / Re: So I had ten OCI interviews...

I have similar stats at a school ranked in the mid 30s and had 30 interviews with 4 callbacks.

 However, I do have a heavy public interest background that may not appeal to the firms.

I found I had a lot more success getting callbacks at a recent job fair than at OCI.  I'm not sure why though...

20 OCI interviews: 2 callbacks
5 job fair interviews: 3 callbacks

I went to a job fair recently and it was pretty similar to OCI, just in a hotel instead

I always do all my work except reading the casebooks in the library (outlining, exam prep, writing papers).  I do my daily casebook readings from home.

Job Search / Receptions

Does anyone else out there hate these post-interview receptions the firms are having?  I can't stand going to these things and having to be so fake.

Job Search / how long before call backs
« on: August 08, 2007, 10:35:07 AM »
For all those whove gone through OCI before, how soon after your screening interview did you receive phone calls asking for you to come in for call back interviews?

Hmm, Hunton Williams picked me, but about half of the others haven't including some other decent firms like Mckenna-Long and Aldridge.  I'm figuring if they strictly go by rankings I should have gotten interviews with everyone.

How old are you?

late 20s.  You think age matters much?  I'm not too far off the median age.

Now I've had one or two more selective firms not pick me for an interview.  While I'm still getting a lot more interviews than rejections I'm starting to wonder...
