tatersol, how many people at Gtown work at the job that they summered at? Does anyone actually accept offers that they get through 3L OCI?
Law firms hire almost exclusively from their 2L summer class. If you work for a firm your 2L summer you almost always work for them after you graduate. If someone doesn't get an offer from their 2L summer employer (rare for anyone from any school), they'll go through 3L OCI. Or some people will get an offer and go through 3L OCI just for more options (less rare).
I don't know what the numbers are for gtown for people getting jobs through 3L OCI. I know that it's much harder 3L than 2L, because most firms aren't interested in hiring 3Ls. The numbers I do know: between 50-65% of 2Ls get jobs through OCI--I'm guessing that probably 70-80% of those will work for that employer after they graduate. A few people won't get offers, and others will just change their plans.
