"Invited to join the write-on competition for law review" is a bit different than actually making law review. That's kind of like writing "Invited to apply to Harvard Law School". :D

This is the poster who transfered last year and put "____ Law Review, Selected as ..."

OP -- Not to be a dick, but don't listen to these people telling you not to do it. If you got invited, put it on. I received multiple V5 offers and another V10 offer before withdrawing from my other callbacks. Every little accolade counts during OCI, especially as a transfer.

This isn't a moral dilemma. You got the invite, you put it on your resume, and you kill it at OCI.

i just did this: "Invited to join the ____ Law Review/Journal as result of writing competition"

if you got on through a write on, i've been told to definitely put it on. if you graded on, it's not as useful, but still put it on! i don't see why people would leave this off when it cannot possibly hurt you in any conceivable way and there's the possibility it could help you.

Do you think it matters that the journal write-on could have possibly been half grades/half write on score?

As a potential transfer, I fully plan on putting "Wrote onto law review at ___" on my resume.

technically, no. for hastings, they don't tell us their methodology or how we each got onto the journal. if you aren't the top 3 students or so from each section that automatically graded on, you say you got on as the result of the writing competition.

Damn, I regret not doing that. No one at the career office told me to. Ugh.
