OCI Reviews

Every fall, law schools around the country participate in a ritual variously known as OCI (On Campus Interviews), FIP (Fall Interview Program), and etc. This ritual involves students "bidding" for the chance to interview with big firms; you bid by submitting a resume and cover letter. If the firm picks you, they schedule an interview, then come to campus and meet with you. In fact, students all over the country are doing this right now. Fun, right?

Maybe, maybe not. But the point here is that some anonymous someone is trying to make the process a little more predictable via a new blawg; Law Firm OCI Reviews. Here's what it's all about:

The purpose of this Blog is to make information available to law students who are involved in OCI interviews for law firms. The purpose of this blog is not to provide information about the firm in terms of the work experience or compensation and benefits, rather it is to provide information for students concerning the methods used by a particular firm in it's OCI interviews. By inviting readers to send in comments regarding their OCI interviews, I am hoping to be able to build a database aimed at helping future students understand what to expect from a particular firm in the interviewing process. Although I named this site OCI reviews, I will also deal with the flyback/callback process.

So far, the site has no content, but it seems like a good idea. If you have experience with OCI, please send your comments to OCIreviews at gmail dot com. You have to email from an "@school" email address, but the site claims your identity will be protected. [link via Law Sloth]
