About 60% can be on an exclusive journal (however, it seems like most people didn't bid all eight journals; everyone I have talked to has only bid 4-5 so I bet no all the journals will fill all their slots).
In the end, it seems like DLJ = awesome. Then, just have a journal on your resume so you don't look lazy and meet the pre-interview preferences of pretty much every OCI firm (a.k.a. journal preferred).

That would be harsh. Have faith. Because doing the writing competition and not having anything to show for it would be brutal.
