I got my LR call a couple hours ago, but it wasn't from the EIC. The caller said they had a few more calls to make, FWIW.

Pretty sure LR is done calling, but could be wrong. I know of 7-8 people so far who have heard, and we all got the call at like the exact same time.

I haven't heard of JIL making any calls, but that doesn't mean it hasn't happened. I'm sure everyone still waiting will hear soon -- good luck!

Do you know if EALR was the second choice? Do people ever not get their second choice if they didn't get law review?

Hey guys, JBL here. A friend of mine with below median grades didnt get a call today. Is it possible to not make any journal?

I think the conventional wisdom is that "everyone gets something" unless only 1 journal was ranked. That said, who knows? Perhaps more JBL calls are coming tomorrow?

Does anyone know if LR is over ― how about journals?

I may be wrong, but it seemed like the LR calls were all done yesterday. Also, I don't think JIL made any calls yet, or have they?

Yep, LR is done, and so is JBL. JCL is partway through (I think) and JIL hasn't started.
