UChicago Law OCI 2019

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Jul 11, 2019 2:55 pm

I haven’t seen a thread for U of C so thought I would start one.

Would anyone who has previously been through the process be willing to look at my bid list?

I'll look, but has OCI sent out the documents with grade ranges and bid success data? That's going to be way more useful than any information I can provide.

Perhaps no news is good news?

At least some LR calls have gone out. Not sure about any other Journal.

They had a deadline, for LR at least, last night. So maybe more calls will go out today.

A non-public deadline for LR offers to be made? Or a deadline for people to accept offers?

Deadline to accept. But there is no masthead yet so maybe they are not done.

Anyone know if the non-LR journals have been making offers or if they’re close to being finished, too?

I do not have any information, and this is pure speculation, but id guess calls won't be coming out today until the end of the working day so no need to stress in the meantime. No direct notice of journals being full is probably good news

LR is done, but the other journals haven't gone yet is my understanding.

Law Review calls went out Saturday. Anyone know if K&E has gone out?

Has anyone heard from other non-LR journals? Were calls made last night? Estimate of when they’ll be done, based on last year?

For people who've heard back from both CJIL and LF, what's the more well known/prestigious of the two?

They're equivalent, pick based on which one sounds more interesting and/or which one has people you'd rather work with.

So much for posting the LR masthead on Monday... I wonder what the holdup is.

It has been internally posted. I believe they said all of them will be released at the same time though so thats probably why it's not public

Any news on K&E? Either it’s much higher than other years or much later than other years

Initial schedules released today. How'd people do? I'm currently sitting at 25 interviews, with 17 of my top 20 bids resulting in interviews.

Oof, fewer than 15. Chicago and DC.

Also K&E finally came out this morning.

Unless you know K&E b/c you got it, be careful. Chicago/DC w/o strong ties to Chi is a pretty classic combo for strikeouts. Not in any way trying to panic you, and if your grades are K&E truly do not worry, but those are markets where you want to maximize your bites at the apple. If you missed firms that you think you are competitive for, consider reaching out to their recruiters and trying to sneak into the schedule somewhere. Disregard all this if you're K&E though, should be totally fine. I mean you'll probably be fine regardless, but less than 15 is definitely sub-optimal.

I’m K&E and I have strong Chicago ties, thank god. And I did get all of the big Chicago firms. Otherwise I’d be pretty panicked.
