Worth it to do Law Review Write-On at new school?

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Aug 24, 2013 11:19 pm

So....I got through OCI and the initial school transfer AND have thankfully, secured a Summer Associate position at a big firm. Now I quickly need to decide if I should do the Law Review Write-On at my new school. It is held during our 2nd week of classes. Would you do it? Pros/Cons. Experiences. Advice. BRING IT.

I did mine (though before getting my future S.A. position). But even if I already had the offer, I'd still do the write-on because:

(1) If you are interested, at all, in clerking, must do.
(2) If you might be interested in trading up after your S.A., must do.
(3) If you think there is a chance you might get no-offered at your S.A. (which might happen, it does these days...), do it.
(4) So far, for me, it's been a really nice way to meet people at my new school, which isn't the easiest thing when everyone already has their 1L comrades-in-arms.

Since Anon, what's the school?

And how many slots do they have for transfers out of how many transfers?

My last question would be is there a reasonably prestigious secondary that you can get on without writing on? If so, that's worth consideration, (though it's of course not LR).

I'm on e-board of my schools journal. It's the easiest thing ever. We are about to publish.
