Fordham OCI Chances

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Jun 21, 2018 11:23 am

GPA is directly between top 25 and top 33. Journals haven't dropped yet but on a secondary journal at the very least. I'm on a competition team (moot court tryouts are this weekend, however, so we will see how that goes).

I've done some networking and am mass mailing but no bites yet. Chances?

If you're in the top third with a journal and competition team, you'll be fine, just make sure to bid conservatively. The SBA should have circulated the sheet that lists what class ranking is generally required by each firm participating in Fordham OCI, so definitely hunt down that information if you haven't yet.

Anecdotally, I was top 33 with Law Review but no moot court or any competition teams and I had something like 16 screeners, 10 callbacks, and 8 offers.

What about just outside top third, but likely to get on a secondary journal and potentially moot court?

If I recall Fordham places around 35-40% of the class in Big Law, so if you bid conservatively and interview well you should be able to snag something.
