Notify targeted schools of law review/moot court offers?

Postby T3transfer » Mon Jun 28, 2010 7:18 pm

If none of the school have notified me of a decision yet, should I call and/or email the schools to let them know that I was just offered the opportunity to be on law review and moot court during the upcoming year at the school I would be transferring from? I was just notified today and I already submittted all my other materials last week. I just don't know whether it would make any difference in my chances or not. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Law review & moot court are worth an addendum to each of your targeted law schools--especially to remind yourself what you may be giving up to attend a higher ranked (I presume) law school.

If I were an adcom (which I'm not), it might impact my decision if you were selected for either activity based on a factor not already present in your application--for example, if you got on moot court because of a tryout or got on law review because of your writing, but not if you graded on to law review.

Yes, I think it's worth mentioning although I'd imagine the vast majority of competitive transfers at top schools made law review anyways. Also, OP could just notify schools that he was "invited onto law review" without mentioning whether he graded on or wrote on.

The vast majority of candidates probably made law review at their current school some way or another. Just include the invite on your resume.
