At my school, you are basically not allowed to quit a journal. If you do (even if it's just saying, "Hey, this journal is not for me, too much work, I'm done, kthxbai" and not slacking off and missing deadlines and being kicked out) you get No Credit on your transcript. With all the bitching I hear, I can't imagine people not quitting en masse without a punitive rule like that. I think the real reason is that we have so many secondary journals and rank preferences in the write on instead of applying to them directly. So it's sort of a stern warning for the people who don't make LR who will take any journal I guess.
