    Re: The Somewhat Late 2017 Placements Thread

    Honestly with the bar set so high I'm not even sure what to do? Do I just torch the whole damn eastern seaboard of Hokkaido on my way out?

    Re: The Somewhat Late 2017 Placements Thread

    Glad y'all got a kick out of it. I'm not too concerned either, I'll just have to paper-bag the vodka while drinking outside I guess.

    Re: Reasons for not receiving an interview?

    Sorry you weren't given an interview :(

  7. Re: Have Any American Applicants Received Notification Yet?

    no idea, could be anything really. From what I've heard/read it might not even be done in house. Like another company sits down with a rubric and there's a point cutoff you have to hit or something...

    'Murica. I should probably buy a suit and get a haircut.
  9. Re: Have Any American Applicants Received Notification Yet?

    welcome, fellow lurker.
    Rumor has it there are even people who still use IRC out there. I think message boards will last a few more winters at least.
  11. Re: Have Any American Applicants Received Notification Yet?

    Got mine this morning as well, and heard from friends on both coasts. Pretty sure most if not all of the American ones went out today. I hope the actual dates come out relatively soon though, the...

    2017 Hopefuls/applicants self-intro thread
