Write on will be miserable but stack checking isn't bad at all. I went through the process for a subordinate journal mostly to prepare for the LR process, and my first editing duties took all of about 6 hours to complete. It'll be well worth it once you get on.

Oh I just don't think LR itself sounds fun or interesting to me, that's why I'm not doing it. It's not bc of the write on.

Wishing good luck to everyone else though!

This varies greatly from one journal to another.

How common is it for write-on to be toward the end of the semester instead of in the middle? Ours was during spring break, and while awful at the time, I'm kinda glad it's over and done with now.

Here, it's the two weeks after finals. Which means the first two weeks of your summer job. Not fun.

Clinics at my school were recently put on a mandatory curve. That means you can work your ass off (as is necessary for clinics usually) and still get a B-. No one I know is applying until they switch it back.

never really quite gotten why people show up with pages of typed notes for every day's reading, seems like a pretty irrefutable waste of time honestly

but what do I know, a pretty decent chunk of people do better than me so #ymmv :lol:

What are y'all taking in the fall?
I'm actually looking forward to a pair of un-curved 20 person classes.

Taking corps too, seems like it's a prerequisite for nearly everything I want to take later on

MBA classes and a pass/fail law course. So basically not a single damn class that counts toward my law ranking. :lol:

Hopefully taking a Bankruptcy course, an Antitrust course, and something White Collar related.
