GULC Transfer Write-On Results

Postby tycoga8118 » Fri Jul 20, 2012 1:40 pm

I don't think results come out until early August but I figured I would make this thread for us to share results as we hear and whatnot

Best of luck to everyone

Did anyone not preference Geo. L. J. #1?

I didn't. Thought I'd have a better chance at getting another secondary than the main journal.

International was my #1

I did, but I know I won't get flagship. Figured I might as well anyway just in case the special snowflake gods are smiling down at me. I know I put Law & Public Policy #2 but can't remember the rest and the preferences page is closed now.

And I ranked every journal but one because I couldn't see myself wanting to do that one journal. Everything else I'd be okay with, though. Some more than others, of course.

I ranked the main journal as first, then american criminal law review, then legal ethics, and i ranked all the others as well but I can't remember in which order after the first three. I think there were three I didn't preference because they had to be in the top 3.

I'm surprised there aren't more GULC transfers on here. Seems like the numbers are down.

I heard early August/right before EIW for results

#1 Geo L. Journal
#2 The Tax Lawyer
#3 International
#4 International Environmental

Figure this gives me a good 3-5% chance of actually being on any journal
so you know, playin the odds

To be considered for the international journal you had to rank it first or second (letter from editor). I heard main journal is very difficult as a transfer. The Tax Lawyer is your shot!

I ranked the main LR first, legal ethics second, the criminal one third, and environmental 4th. I don't remember the order after #4.

You can only get the main journal if you put it first. Tax -> top 2, Intl -> top 2, public policy -> top 3, gender -> near top, criminal law -> top 2

Why does everything boil down to ranking strategy? OCI, now journals? I almost wish I didn't rank flagship law review at all so that I could have a better chance at some of the more selective secondaries.

I wonder how many spots are open for transfers at each one.

Same for me. I received confirmation after the competition that my submission was all set, so I suspect that there may be a glitch in their system.

Results are out. Any transfers make it onto the main journal?

EDIT: I made it onto a secondary that I preferenced number 1. I didnt even bother with the main journal.

Do we need send an acceptance notice? Have you all received any information regarding journal trainings or meeting etc.?

I was told to email my acceptance by x date and time to one of the editors. Have you received an email yet from an editor or just confirmation through the write on website?
