So do the calls come out pretty quickly? I mean, around relatively the same time as everyone else's?

Well, SMU LR gets the first pick, so they start making offers and it all kind of trickles down. It'll start on Saturday (maybe this Saturday if you're lucky) and end around Tuesday night. If you're top 25%, you're on somewhere almost for sure. If you're top 50%, you've got a pretty good chance. Below that, I wouldn't hold your breath but it's definitely possible.

I don't have anything to do with journal selections. But I know people and am willing to discuss bribes.

SMU LR making their offers tomorrow, kind of early. STLR (and probably International) around noon-ish. Second round on Monday after 6:00 if not enough people sign up.

Thanks boss.

So, if we don't hear anything by say 2:00 pm then we most likely didn't make SMU LR or the first round of STLR or IRLA?

I know the folks who run International, great people. And I obviously know about STLR, so if anyone has any questions, just ask.

How much of a time commitment is being on a Journal?

Depends on the journal. SMU LR / International, a decent bit because they publish more. STLR, not near as much.

If you didn't get anything today, relax. People have a couple days to respond, and then another wave will go out.
