Do you think that this would help or hurt me? // Do you think that having interviewed for the 1L diversity positions bears any positive or negative weight in the 2L hiring process generally? I know that some places like Skadden will move people directly to callbacks, but I'm not sure if that is the general practice, or Skadden is an exception.

How in god's name will the answer to this question affect your decision making?

I was accepted to a secondary journal yesterday. Is it worth notifying the firms that I've reached out to but have heard nothing back from? Or is anything that isn't law review not really worth it?

It is possible it depends on the school/firm/journal, but I am at a D/N/C/B and will be notifying the places I am interested in and haven't heard back from if/when I get onto any journal, not just LR

Which one isn’t? Does your school have a strict OCI policy or not?

It's beneficial to notify them. Many employers are looking for any journal experience at all - not just LR. While LR is the most presitgious and says something implicit about your grades/ranking, employers are also interested in your general writing ability/co-curriculars.

It can't hurt you; it can only put you a step above anyone who applies without journal experience.

You can probably guess which one doesn't.

And no, my school has basically no policy on pre-OCI. Not encouraged, not discouraged. Lower T-14.

I know someone with a White & Case interview (unclear whether it's CB or screener), but they have a major connection there.

Did you go straight to CB at all these? We’re all these before OCI?

Yes to CB. No screeners. Cravath is scheduled after our OCI begins, rest are before.

I think people should be aware here that context really matters. Some firms use pre-OCI as a way to recruit from schools that are either far away or where they're only going to take 1 or 2 associates from (Berkeley, Stanford, etc.) Others use it as a way to get top talent.

Poster who posted list. These callbacks and offers went out to median and above median students at a t13 (Duke/UVA). Most of the students who have received these callbacks/offers are currently working in DC.

Being at one of the two schools you mentioned, I know that no one from that school in DC has gotten a CB or a screener or an offer. So.

Then you must be at the other school then. I have no reason to make up a random list on here. People wanted a list from an earlier poster, so I am providing people with a list.
