I have a feeling they know what's happening. Unfortunately, SEO may just decide to go on instinct and make their own predictions based on numbers. And they have interviewed quite a few candidates already. They could wait a little longer, but not by much. They are going to have to make some decisions b/c the firms will want to start putting their rosters together before the summer.
The situation favors applicants who applied early and, thus, have already been admitted to top schools. That's not to say all is lost or that others have no chance, just that it doesn't really look too good.
Find every Wall Street punk you can get your hands on and hit them in the mouth! lol. They caused all of this.
