I applied at the deadline, but haven't heard anything.  I assume that if you get a callback, a conditional offer will follow subject to your background check. When/ where did you apply and when was your interview?

I do have 2 years work experience in finance and I am targeting NC, primarily Charlotte, which is supposed to be the second biggest financial center in the states. I thought it would be a good match, lol.

In a market like Charlotte, your ties to the city are WAY WAY more important than your academic or work background. If you aren't from there, don't have family there, or don't have a wife from there, they will basically just write you off and move on.

You are right on regarding Charlotte.  However, the national firms seem more likely to overlook lack of ties to city if you're graduating from wake or unc.  I guess choosing those schools shows you are committed to living in Charlotte when you graduate.

I also think the firms realize that in a city Charlotte's size your ability to cultivate relationships is extremely important.  They want people who can use their unc/ wake ug and ls networks to bring in business.

Where did you go to undergrad?  That seems to matter at national and regional charlotte firms.

Are you just out of undergrad or do you have some work experience?  I've seen many younger classmates at my T2 struggle with OCI.  Go to a mock interview, but remember that you're not on a sales interview.  You don't have to close them.  Getting the interview means your qualified.  I've found that making conversation and getting the interviewers to like me is working.

I spend fifteen hours a week driving to and from school, and still have enough time to work out everyday.  School/ sleep takes up the rest of the week.

I would start by going to each of your professors and asking them this question.  The best advice I can give you is to IRAC.  Have you learned this yet at your school?

Issue - spot the issue

Rule- State the rule

Analysis- Provide strong analysis

Conclusion - write your conclusion

Don't worry if this is confusing now.  It will get easier after you practice some.  Another idea is to take practice exams and make course outlines.  However, your grades are pretty strong and suggest that you probably don't need to alter your study habits significantly.  [maybe you can offer me some advice;)]  I think if you just practice IRAC, you probably will see some results when grades come in. 

Good luck!!!

Sorry, took a break from outlining contracts to be sarcastic.  Won't happen again.  I should have just called butters a dipshit or a jackass and moved on.
