Again? Has it really been a year? No of course it hasn't been a year, it's been 11 months. But apparently schools setting up On-Campus Interviews are on the lunar calendar or something. Might as well wish everyone a Happy Yom Kippur while I'm at it. All that aside, this year promises to be special. It's an Olympics year and to be quite honest, I'd love to see Bob Costas cover the competitive, fearless, and agonizing spirit of OCIP. Who doesn't want to see a montage of Bobby hitting the gym to practice his handshake grip? Or Janey having a break down while shopping for a conservative, yet sassy business suit, only to build herself back up just in the nick of time to stick the hotel room greetings. Will THIS be the year someone finally attempts a three-piece suit? Who will dominate the VAULT? Pesky questions that I'm sure NB
will answer over the next few weeks.
With my ranting out of the way, this is your
OCIP thread, but we do have some guidelines and best practices. For those of you who are unfamiliar, here is a short explanation (you should also probably consult 2010's thread
and follow the links in that post to educate yourself). In essence,
this thread is to inform those who want to be informed of such things
when firms send out offers and/or rejections following OCIP. OCIP is a
stressful process and it brings out the best and often the worst in
people. If you feel OCIP is a notch below the library during exam times
then you might want to skip this thread.
We will take comments posted below regarding offers/rejections and
incorporate them into the body of this post. The process is tedious and
generally not fun. There's a lot you can do to expedite things along.
2. PLEASE READ THE BODY OF THIS POST AND THE LAST FEW COMMENTS TO SEE IF ANYONE HAS POSTED THE SAME OFFER/REJECTION THAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO POST.
3. SEE NUMBER 2.
4. Post the offers/rejections in the following format:
Firm name, Office, +/- to indicate offer/rejection respectively. For example:
Orrick, SF +.
The location abbreviations are as follows:
-- Atlanta; Bos -- Boston; Chi -- Chicago; Dal -- Dallas; DC -- DC;
EBay -- East Bay locations (Oakland, Walnut Creek, etc.); LA -- LA area
offices (includes Century City); Mia = Miami and South Florida; Minn --
Minnesota; NY -- New York/New Jersey; OC -- Orange County area offices;
Por -- Portland; Sac -- Sacramento; SD -- San Diego; SF -- San
Francisco; SV -- Silicon Valley offices (includes Palo Alto, San Jose,
Menlo Park, and all other South Bay locations).
This is now the eighth OCIP that N&B has had this thread.
Without failure, each previous thread contained comments that were ummm
worthy of staying up. So, while we will delete comments that are only
posting +/-, more substantive comments will stay up. At the same time,
it's probably wise not to identify yourself to your prospective
employers. So don't write anything silly that's going to reveal who you
Best of luck to all of you, but for the love all that is holy and good, please follow Rules 2 and 3
