Current Law Students / 3L OCI Prediction
« on: August 08, 2008, 05:12:20 PM »
I'm stating the obvious here...but I predict 3L OCI will be a disaster this year.

Did anyone else's school send out a class wide email during the summer pushing for all 2Ls to sign up for 3L OCI due to the economy? For peace of mind, I did, and got back my results today....absolutely horrendous. I believe I bid on every single entity that is attending OCI at my school (30 or something like that) and I only got one OCI interview with a government agency. For the sake of context, I'm top third of a T25.

Hopefully the predictions about all the cold offers coming out of this summer will be way off the mark. Or was my experience just particularly unusual? Maybe I had some huge, glaring typo on my resume...that would be keen.

Job Search / 2L Grades: vent here if necessary

I know its too early for most people to comment on this, but is anyone else as disappointed in their 2L grades as I am in mine? Why didn't I take more seminars?

I hope my firm doesn't care THAT much about my significant dip in GPA. One of the only reasons I snagged an associateship last summer was due to a freakishly good 1L second semester...but since then I haven't come close to recreating that past performance. My first semester 2L year I thought my grades were impacted by my callback schedule, so I wrote it off...but I'm doing just as poorly this semester as I did last semester sans any excuse.

If this comes back in the form of a cold/no offer this summer, I am absolutely going to flip out.
