When I was picking rising 2Ls last year, I chose anyone who was willing to work on the journal regardless of whether they tailored their statement (obviously people who tailor their statement will get on the journal since no one would tailor their statement to a journal unless they actually wanted to be on it)
Awesome, that's good to hear. I guess I was just worried because I didn't even bother mentioning the journal name in my PS (I think I said something along the lines of, "and I view this journal as an opportunity to..." instead). Thought maybe that would be seen as complete disinterest.
Thanks for the feedback though guys, I might just have to snag a journal that doesn't fill up.
