Cant imagine why this lottery should take any more than an hour + maybe an extra day in case an emergency happened and Cornell wanted to wait for someone. I mean it's computerized

For the same reasons why we had to meet w/Public Interest to talk about PIF funding when an email would've sufficed.

Just law review today, unless something has changed. Don't freak out if you dont get a call.

And congrats.

So are the other journals going to be calling in the next two days, or is there usually a space between law review calls and the other journals?

Only have one year frame of reference. I expect they'll be contacting their associates by the end of the day Monday (or sooner).

Ok to be clearer: they're calling tomorrow or Monday. There will be no calls today, to the best of my (limited) knowledge.

Probably because JLPP doesn't matter.

So the JLPP editors will theoretically select the work-on members in the 3 days between the work-on due date (July 21) and the resume deadline (July 24)? Because otherwise there would be a differentiation from the other members on JLPP and that seems to defeat the point of the work-on for AJF purposes.

That's the idea, to my (limited) knowledge. Picking the work-ons wont be that hard- after all, they already have the writing competition scored fully.

That was a bad joke, in rather poor taste, and it smacks of the type of entitlement that I would prefer not to be known for. I apologize.

Question - have all the people who made Law Review after people transferred been those accepted to their preferenced secondaries (more often ILJ than JLPP, since ILJ doesn't allow write-on)? It would make sense for that to happen but then again the different journals do grade differently. This year it appears there's at least 10 people who are transferring, and it seems at least half of them made Law Review, if not more. I do know that the 42 (or 44?) for LR as it stands now was made up of people excluding those who told the caller that they're transferring, but not all transfer decisions are out. So would those who get in from now be those who are on ILJ, more likely than JLPP or no journal? If the ILJ people drop ILJ to join LR, then does ILJ take on more? From which pool?

Am I making sense?

Is anything making sense?

What is life?

I think you're asking how its determined who gets LR once transfers decline to accept?
If that's what you're asking, I'm wondering the same thing.

More or less. I am assuming the people who already decided to transfer declined LR when they got the call, and LR just kept calling more people until they hit their number. I think there might be two or three who get in now, and most likely they're ones who got selected for ILJ (or JLPP, if they preferenced it). Then it would mean ILJ and JLPP would have more room, no?
