Hanging By An OCI Thread

UPDATE 8/10/2014: READ AND FOLLOW RULES 2 AND 3.  Folks, I get the impulse to just jump on and post the offers and dings at hand.  But you're killing me.  It really does add to my workload exponentially to separate the wheat from the chaff.  Worst of all,, this is really not making Boalties look all that great at following directions.  So pretty please, with sugar on top, follow Rules 2 and 3.

***

Next Friday will mark 10 years to the day that I created this blog as a way of chronicling my experience in law school.  It has served well beyond its initial, humble purpose.  But with my very limited time these days, and more importantly with the ethos of the blog always being rooted in current student affairs, it's harder and harder for me (and other contributors to keep pace).  What I'm saying is, I'll create an OCI thread again this year, to mark the 11th OCI thread.  But if any current student wants to step up and take the reigns, just shoot me an email.

The usual caveats apply.  Don't take this personally, if you are already stressed, then just avoid this, yada yada yada.  You can read them all here.

RULES

1. 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:
Atl -- 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).
5. This is now the ninth EIW 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 are.

Best of luck to all of you, but for the love all that is holy and good, please follow Rules 2 and 3.

What week are people scheduling their callbacks? This week, next week? Any reason to schedule this week rather than next week?

9:43, I can't speak for any firm (and certainly not for any candidates), but the answer to your second question is a resounding yes. OCI used to be in late September (with some schools in October). But in 2008, when the market crashed, a lot of firms suddenly limited their incoming summer classes and even rescinded some offers. The carnage fell particularly heavily on schools with late OCIs. Since that time, OCIs have been moving earlier and earlier because schools are trying to give their candidates a leg up by having them fill those earlier call back interview slots. Like I said, without speaking on behalf of anyone with any say on the matter, if I were you, I'd snatch up early slots.
