You have to provide more context with posts like this. Was this person from Berkeley, and which office? A single no-offer in the entire summer doesn't really mean anything.

Sorry, yes, didn't want to say too much so as not to out that person.

It was in the CA region. Can't be more specific than that because their classes are really small and I don't want to out my friend. But I thought it worth mentioning for anyone considering them. They are historically 100% offer, but I guess that's not the case recently.

Don't know the reason for the no offer.

Joining here. I have 19 interviews...crossing my fingers.

What percentage of people who participate get offers? 50% more?

^^ I think it depends on grades, WE and interview skills, but it's something like 60%+ according to CDO.

Boalt's grading still trips me up, I'm wondering how many Hs are enough for the V20?

Also anybody have pre-OCI interviews? I've mass-mailed but no luck...
