"Unfortunately, if you are receiving this e-mail, the journals are unable to extend you a membership offer for next year" is the meat of it.

Just heard that I got into a secondary journal at a similarly ranked school as GW. My top choice has been GW, should this make a difference in my decision?

Oh and I didn't get into GW in time to petition, so I would not be on a journal in GW (assuming you can't write-on as a 3L, you can't right?).

Correct. Journal was a one-shot deal; no way to get on as a 3L. (Caveat: the brand-new secondary journal (communications I think?) did have a write-on open to rising 3Ls this year. But I wouldn't count on another new journal being added next year. There is no way to get on law review or any existing journal.)

Oh, and I made law review! Things are looking up!

Congrats!! That is awesome! If any transfer has questions about GW I can answer. I'm not a transfer as indicated by other posts here. Just here as a fellow rising 2L to help out with questions and other things.

I am. Getting pretty anxious since it's now only a month away... Thought I had things lined up too but it all fell apart this week.
BTW, I am a female and have a cat.

I am female, have a cat and have no housing figured out yet either. I can't even start looking at places for another two weeks because I'm still at my out-of-state internship.

No official rank, but I'm #2 or 3, 3.6x, TTTT, in DC, military background. #1 from my school also got waitlisted at GULC and dinged at GW.

Sorry to hear. There really seems to be a lot of randomness in transfer admissions - I was in the first wave of acceptances at GW and the first wave of dings at GULC. I hope you get off the waitlist.

Likewise. I was swiftly rejected from GULC, yet in at GW. Very interesting to see someone rejected at GW yet given a chance at GULC.

These cycles are crazier than our current weather pattern.
