Any idea on this?

How much do the chances change if you meet the OCI criteria?

What if you're mass mailing firms that you should be competitive for?

And, when going into the interviews, does your resume still matter a lot?  Or, have firms already weeded out the people that don't have the qualifications, and are just looking to pick someone they like at that point?

If you got an interview with a law firm, that means there must be something in your resume that they are looking for.  That's an encouraging sign if it means that all you have to do is make a good impression on that interviewer.  However, in my case, the place I'm interviewing with is still asking for my undergraduate transcripts. I'm not sure if my undergraduate grades will have any impact on my interview.  I thought I could just get away with an interview but they are still pretty strict about the transcripts.
