It's a black box for most. If you're well liked by certain members, though, you'll have a chance to glean some insights.

Do you mean writing on through the journal tryout or getting a note accepted in one of the pools? If the latter, I wouldn't really be able to offer much. A Notes Editor would be more qualified, but none of them frequent this site.

It feels better now that I'm done. My enthusiasm for the legal academy has markedly waned in the past year.

I believe that no matter what any particular member of the Virginia Law Review feels about the Virginia Plan, it is extremely unlikely to ever be changed given the social backlash that would occur both on Grounds and in the blogosphere. Having said that, it's a wretched stain on the otherwise sterling reputation of the journal.

Can anyone confirm that this OP is legit and not just "trolling" or whatever you call it? Or do we just assume he's being honest.

Well, at the very least I'm pretty sure he's got two accounts, so I'm banning this one.

Nevermind. Someone credible has vouched for his IP crossover.

It seems fine. I think it's improved steadily since I arrived in the summer of 2009. The OGI that took place that year was a true bloodbath; don't be fooled by c/o '13 folks attempting to bemoan their situation.
