Does anybody have an idea of the typical amount of spots available for transfers on law review?

I think I remember reading in past threads that just a few people made it on, but I could be completely off-base.

Hey everyone. Congrats on everyone that's been accepted so far, and good luck to everyone still waiting. Be sure to join us over in the TLS Transfer Cycle 2015 (Class of 2017) thread once you know where you're headed!

Check out the Georgetown Law Journal Comparison Chart. It has the number of positions for every journal.

Yes, but it doesn't say how many of those spots are reserved for transfers.

I haven't heard of anyone getting off the waitlist, online or irl, besides HungJuror, who got in like three days after the waitlist came out.

I would e-mail GULC admissions with Withdrawal as a subject line or something similar.

I think a brief email (or phone call) stating that you are withdrawing your acceptance will suffice. Some schools have different procedures, but that seems to be the most common way.

You can call or email. I would try calling. Worst case scenario they will tell you that they want it in writing.

I was looking at the transfer thread from last year and it looks that out of the wait list only 2 people were accepted. What a horrible number :(

Also it happened around July 28.
