How quickly do OCI rejections come in?
« on: September 09, 2008, 07:55:48 PM »
Hi -

I've had a number of OCI screening interviews and have a callback from one. Two of the firms have started making their call-back phone calls - but unfortunately not to me.   :( Oh well, that's the way it goes. How long would you expect to wait before receiving the rejection email/letter? I would have thought that it would have been pretty quick, but it's been almost a week and I've heard nothing. (The friend who got the callbacks was actually rejected by the firm that gave me the callback, and she found out the same day as me.) I am not harboring any hopes that I will get a callback, but just interested in other people's experiences. Thanks.

It varies a LOT by firm.  Last year I got a rejection letter in late November. . . two months after I'd accepted somewhere else.   :P
I was referring to your intellectual penis. Which is quite robust.

Jolie is creeping up on me.

Who are you, and what are you doing here?
I hate science because I refuse to assume that a discipline based in large part on the continual scrapping and renewal of ideas is unconditionally correct in a given area.

Most of my dings were by letter; got a few emails.

Almost all of my callbacks were by phone (with a follow up email); got one by email alone and one by letter alone.

thanks, so it sounds like i should hear something one way or the other

Check  your spam folder! One of my callbacks ended up there somehow...
