When people say "shitstorm" I'm not sure they're bemoaning the fate of the top 10%. Yes, people who graded on LR have opportunities, but it seems that people with averages above 177 do not. Wouldn't you all guess that most students have heard positively or negatively from every OCI firm? I'd say the possibility of a second round of CB anywhere is very, very slight.
