M_Cool, what is your indiation that OCI is so brutal this year? It seems like firms are hiring less, but there are still jobs out there. A couple years ago, my friend was a transfer from a tier 4 to a top 10 and he had 20 job offers. Literally, 20. Hell, if prospects even decline 75%, that's still 5 job offers.
The fact that practically no one from schools like Michigan, Duke, etc. are getting any callbacks is one indication that OCI isn't going so hot.
If you're 25th percentile at (just as an example) Cornell, you're probably not getting a V100 firm under any circumstances. Even 75th percentile is a stretch, at least this year.
