I think you're right.  Might as well go for it.  Thanks for the advice.

Is it worth being EIC or any board member at all if it caused a small drop in GPA?  Like from top 10% to top 15- 20% or something?  Maybe that doesn't typically happen anyway but would you take EIC if you knew your ranking would drop by 5-10%?

Stay in school, get it out of the way now. Believe me you will wish you did.

So, is it worth it?  EIC?  Other positions? 

Job Search / Re: How was OCI?

Just to be more clear, I had plenty of questions for interviewers and so did others I have spoken to since.  I left thinking I did well, got along with the interviewers and had a few laughs with all of them.  My main point is that OCI is a joke when it comes to lower tiered schools.  You can object to that notion, feel free, but it's what I believe based on my experience and others.  If you go to a top-tier / mid-tier school I'm sure you had a different experience.  I also stick by the opinion that you don't get the benefit of interview experience because it's just a B.S. session about nothing.  I've already got something else lined up for the summer so I'm not down and out.  I just think that if these big firms come to a school knowing they aren't hiring anyone from that school it is a waste of time and a sham and yea, I think that is what is going on.

IMO, OCI is a complete sham unless you are in a Top school these days.  The firms show up knowing they aren't hiring anybody from a lower tiered school.  The "interviews" are a joke.  They just sit and B.S. with you about nonsense for about 15 minutes and say goodbye.  It's not even interview experience, because they don't really interview you.  No one is getting any callbacks here.  I'm on LR, Top 10%, rejected everywhere so far.  Hope it's better for others out there.  Any info?

Transferring / Does the timing of decision indicate anything?

Do schools tend to send out acceptances before rejections or do they do it alphabetically, in the order of receipt or is it just a massive cluster F?

How are you still confused?  The poster said they were wait-listed when they applied last year.  Seems pretty clear to me.
