Also interested in what city this was from. Also, was this post-CB or from a screener?

Their Philly office has one 1L from Michigan returning, so it's unlikely that they will take more Michigan people.

GPA: 3.15
WE: KJD
Journal: Secondary
IP: Nope

Markets: NYC, Non-Chicago Midwest, South
OCI interviews: 28
OCI Callbacks: 2
Non-OCI screeners: 3
Non-OCI callbacks: 6 (mass mail, mass mail, mass mail)
Offers: 1 (litigation boutique mass mail)
Takeaways:
1. NYC is harder than you think if you have no Northeast in your resume. I realize most of the difficulties were due to poor grades, but lack of ties was another big factor.
2. I cannot emphasize mass mailing enough. I'd have no job if it weren't for hustle. OCI is a cruel mistress.
3. Secondaries, even ones you have ties to, will ding you for going out of region. I know people who had 3.6+ GPAs who got elite Chicago offers but got dinged in my secondary target market (even though they're from the area and I'm from the state I was targeting).

Yes. I sent my materials in and the firms invited me in for a callback straight away.
