Weird, I thought we would hear before bidding closes to be able to adjust bids accordingly

I asked them about the journal selection and they said end of july.

ETA: final schedule comes out 7/31 so yes I suppose it's the same answer.

law review calls historically are made at the end of the second or third full week of July (typically Saturday). the offerees will have a day or two to accept, and then the rest of the journal decisions get made and offers are sent when practicable.

this is so dumb. i feel like we are at a disadvantage with no journal info on our resume. makes contacting firms harder because i feel like a slacker with no journal while i think a ton of other law schools already have their decisions

gahhhhh come on!

Sounds like they will call this Saturday then, so the other journals will have time to call next week before our final resumes on Symplicity are due (I hope)

The journals will let you know on time. Just be ready to cut and paste the blurb that each journal should give you for how to cite them on your resume. This should come in the email welcoming you to the journal.

For example: Honors: Associate Editor, Journal of International Law, Vol. 32.

No word here. When in the day did the journals call last year? Do we have info about when journals called the year before? It would be helpful to know before regional interviews start...

The journals all called on Saturday July 30th last year. I got my call around 11am, most people seemed to get them in the morning and it seemed like they were trying to stagger them so they weren't calling people on the west coast too early.

The "Penn Students Taking Questions" thread, pg. 59, says that journals called people 7/23/11 last year... do different journals have different days?

I guess only if LR called this weekend, but none of my friends got calls, so I'm not sure if they called or not

I mean on track for LR to call on 7/28. I don't think LR has released.

Have they ever called people on a weekday? If LR calls on 7/28, won't other journals call even later than that (resume collection deadlines are 7/30)?

No idea, just reporting what a CP&P person told me. In retrospect, CP&P hasn't been very helpful with the OCI process, so maybe that information should be taken with a grain of salt.
