The OCI process is (fine/the worst) [split] in Career Services Posted November 10 13 minutes ago, Diplock said: Am I a dick for just really not caring if immensely privileged people have trouble dealing with the first real failure they've ever experienced? No. You're not. On a scale of general suffering, coming up empty in the 2L recruit is a disappointment, not a catastrophe. Sure, where there's sadness, there should be empathy. But there's no need to lay it on too thick. They survived a slate of interviews and dinners, not Rwanda 1994. I guess this does come off as insensitive, but it's not meant to. I'm not saying that striking out wouldn't be difficult. I'm just saying that my empathy is proportional to the level of suffering that's objectively reasonable here, and so I can't care about this the same way I would about the truly traumatic things that happen to people out in the world. So yeah, you 2Ls should take care of yourselves out there. But try and keep things in context. There's no advantage to treating a set-back like a tragedy.
