Considering how Cravath is predicting no bonuses for 2009, I would guess 2009 OCI will be a slaughterhouse. Probably worse than it was this year. But on the other hand, firms hire people who will start 2 years later, so who knows? One thing is for sure: it won't be as good as it has been in the past couple of years.

Ugh . . . it hasn't even been that good the past couple of years.  I talked to an alum who graduated in 2004 and they were begging for work.

Actually, 2004-2006 were pretty busy years until everything starting slowing down in 2007. I think 2008 is still busy due to all the clean up work. But the big question is what will happen 2-3 years down the road? Nobody really knows right now.

That's it, I'm dropping out.
At least I can f-ing think.

I'm thinking worse.

With everyone on deferral now, they have a very easy way to take up slack in hiring without making summer offers.
