Rushing All Over Again.

Posted in Back to School at 2:53 pm by brookel

We are back in school – 2L year is in full-swing. Every day a different group of people wear their suits to school, ready for interviews.  As much as I dislike wearing a suit, everyone does look a lot nicer these days. Usually we’re all in Tshirts and jeans, so to see people in suits is somewhat startling.

The problem with OCI (on campus interviewing) isn’t the interviewing though – and along with it the missing class – it’s everything else that comes along with it. You need to think ahead to where you will put your suit and bring clothes to change into or out of; you have to either go to the receptions the firms have the night before, or feel guilty and at a loss when you skip them.   And, not only do you have to wear the suit, you need to wear heels and make up – all with a large backpack on your back. It just seems silly.

Of course, I survived sorority rush before, and I’m sure I can do it again – just didn’t know I’d have to.
