I had some friends who had success.  I skipped this year since there were only 15 firms interviewing 3Ls in CA.  The possible $3M plane ticket didn't seem worth it.

Good luck.  It can be intense.  And it looks like a lawyer army.  And I got to spend a bunch of time hanging out in Chicago, whereupon I learned it is a real city.

Thanks for the response! its encouraging that some of your friends had success there. I'm assuming this is set up like a campus OCI in a way....20 minute interview and then if they like you they call you back to their main office sometime in august....is that correct?
Did your friends have many interviews in chicago/ translate to many callback?
Thanks

callbacks are usually later than august since they may also want to interview people at schools.  but, yes, that's how it worked.  I think 2 of 5 of us are at the jobs from Chicago.  (i might be wrong, i can't stay on top of what everyone is doing.)

thanks again. a final question if you don't mind. Did you remember how long after the loyola program you got call back offers? I know with fall oci its pretty quick, I wasnt sure if the program operated the same way. Oh, and if you don't mind me asking, which law school you go to? Thanks!

sorry, i think there was a misunderstanding...i meant when after the 20 min interview in chicago did firms tell them they were selected for a call back...usually for oci its a day to a week after the initial interview...i feel like september, over a month, is too much..
