General Board / OCI - How many suits, white shirts, etc. do you need?
« on: July 06, 2007, 05:28:11 PM »
I'm concerned that I may not have enough interviewing attire for the upcoming OCI season.  So far, I have 2 suits and 2 white dress shirts. (well, more than that, but 2 are serviceable at best; they are button-down collars.)  Is this enough for OCI?  I had two OCI interviews this spring as a 1L, but I'm sure transferring (I'm already admitted) to a top 25 school will yield me more interviews.  I think I need one more suit and 2 more white shirts, but would like to hear from someone who has mroe experience.


2L job search / What should I expect for 2L summer?
« on: June 12, 2007, 06:04:08 PM »
I finished just outside of the top 1/3 at a low T1.  I plan to toss my hat into the OCI fray and see if I get any bites. I also plan to send out applications to various firms that arent coming to OCI.  I doubt that a V100 firm will interview me, but then again, I'm basing this on other rising 2L opinions.  If I hustle on applying to larger firms outside of OCI, should I expect to receive interviews and subsequently offers?  Ie, how high should I set my expectations?

Transferring / How much of a move is worthwhile?
« on: May 09, 2007, 10:38:42 AM »
I want to hear some thoughts on how much of a move up in the rankings you all think makes transferring worthwhile for the following categories:


I'm interested in the minimal jump.  Sure, everyone should try T14, but that's not always possible.  If you are roughly between the 1/4 and 1/3 marks, then your options become rather limited in how far up you can transfer.  However, I think there's less incentive to stay at your current school because these folks usu are not offered scholarships and the like.  Personally, I'd strongly consider making a transfer in the following instances:

t20-30 --> t10
t30-40 --> t15
t40-50 --> t20
t50-70 --> t30
t70-100 --> t40-45ish
