Thank you for this info! I've been waiting on the journals before doing my targeted mailings.

So does anyone know if we'll hear today? How long does it take for the matching system to work after rankings have been turned in?

Well, nothing here today, although I suppose that's not definitive. Definitely this week, I would imagine.

So how does this work -- they typically call? Or e-mail, or what?

Depends on the journal. I'm not sure which journals call vs. email.

Gotta say, I'm kind of pissed at my friend who told me he had heard! I had forgotten all about this stuff. Discussing on a forum is one thing, but come on, why would you start texting people right away? That said, I'm not surprised because it was totally a law school/1L thing to do. :evil:

How did you forget about this stuff?? :evil: <-- jealous!! I think it's normal for really close friends to tell each other, but I can see how it would be a little galling to get an immediate text from anyone less.

Anyone know how many people typically apply for journals at NYU, and how many people actually get them? I thought I read someone saying that 80% of people who apply get them, but that seems a bit high.

Moot called pretty late last night (around 9 pm).

As for how many people get something... There are about forty slots on each journal (fewer for Law & Business, I think), and 8 journals + Moot Court... That's around 350 or so slots. Considering some of the 450 rising 2Ls don't do the writing competition or only apply to Law Review, 80% getting some journal/moot court doesn't seem unrealistic.

Has anyone else still not heard anything yet? Does that basically mean we're not getting an invitation at this point?

Last year I think it was about a 3.85 or so. It will vary from year to year though. Also I think they take the write ons and then go to grade ons so if someone in the top X students writes on they'll go further down in the grading. And of course there are people that would grade on that don't do the writing comp.

My apologies to anyone else who gets saddled with Law and Liberty because you forgot not to rank it.
