I'm on Law and Liberty. Nobody wants to be on Law and Liberty. And you don't want to be around the people who want to be on Law and Liberty.

The matching system is electronic and takes minutes to run--all journals find out the results at the same time and, in my experience, immediately begin calling and e-mailing their new members. If you haven't heard back from a journal by tomorrow, either they are tremendously slow at contacting staff editors (unlikely, or worse, unprofessional), or you were not selected. You could e-mail Paul O---, to double-check, of course.

Law & Liberty is a conservative/libertarian journal. It's not obvious to everyone from the name, alas, and if you're liberal it can come as an unfortunate surprise.

Yeah, journal decisions don't come out until a couple weeks into July. The grading process, as you can imagine, takes a fuckton of time and has to be split up amongst the journals, and none of the 2Ls get to it until the last minute. Everyone hears at about the same time, so you'll know the process has gotten started once calls start going out. If you've ranked more than a couple journals, its very, very unlikely that you won't get any of your choices.

I did my writing comp in a matter of... 2 days.
I didn't have time to put in quality work. I did a rundown of the bluebook, probably taking about 7 hours total. The comment took one full day. The personal statement was recycled using my law admissions one.

I'm worried I won't make a journal. I literally turned it in the night before and everyone worked on this for 2 weeks while I only had 2 days.

have you heard of anyone not making a journal? If so, do you think the amount of work I put in would suffice?

I did pretty much the same thing that you did (including having to pull an all-nighter to finish it, seriously contemplating just giving up sometime around 4am, and turning it in five minutes before the deadline) and got on my second-choice journal (my first choice being Law Review). Tons of people start working on it a few days before it's due and end up doing just fine. If you ranked all the journals, there is just about a 0% chance that you'll get into none of them. I have not heard of anyone not making it onto a journal who wanted to and ranked all the journals (but, to be fair, that's also not something that anyone would want to bring up).

Relax, you'll be fine. Besides, once you actually start doing the busywork that is being a journal editor, you'll wonder why you ever freaked out about it and wish you'd just skipped the whole damn thing in the first place.

Probably this week, but obviously no guarantees. The deadline for journals to rank applicants is tomorrow--so I'd say you might start hearing as soon as Tuesday.

(Edit: As of Monday night, the deadline appears to have been moved to Wednesday, so Thursday seems a more likely first chance now.)
