i'm at 4H/6P and ocs told me i'd do fine, but i only got 4 callbacks after 20+ screeners


Also at 4 callbacks, with over 20 screeners. Could definitely be worse, but it is below the average from last year. I'm still holding out hope.


Seconded. Excellent interviewer, minority, and unique background with 1 LP. 25+ screeners, shut out of DC and Boston. OCS seems shocked.

To be fair, the standard advice for anyone with an LP is to bid heavily in NY since they're less grade selective than Boston and DC in particular.

Does this mean that it’s a ding then if I still haven’t received anything?

The stats in previous years' EIP threads really helped me out, so I thought I'd share mine now that the season is winding down.

5 H, 5 P with international experience pre-law school. Was nervous about my interviewing since I'm not a natural, but I think I ended up in the decent-good category after some practice. Interviewed in Chicago and Houston, with some ties to each market. Interviewed for transactional positions.

Chicago
7 Screeners
5 CBs (took 3)
2 offers (accepted one!)

Houston
9 Screeners
5 CBs (took them all)
4 offers

Takeaway: Get your basic interview answers down pre-EIP and smile/engage a lot during the interviews and you'll be juuuusssstttt fine in secondary markets.
