I graded onto law review last semester and am currently on it, doing cite & source, digest articles, pre-page proofs, and dun dun DUN - my comment. The first draft of my comment is due this summer. This really depresses me because if I do transfer, it could be all for nothing if I don't get onto a journal at the new school. Not only will I have wasted my time but also the time of other people like my writing advisor, law review people, etc. However, I think I am going 4/4 deferred, so I can't drop law review until I have an acceptance in hand, which will be after my June 15th first draft deadline.
With that said, I totally have law review on my resume for transfer apps and 2L OCI. I don't want to put in all of these hours for nothing.
I could get lucky, though, and transfer, get onto law review at the new school, and recycle my unpublished comment. That would be lovely.
I have just completed a comment to write onto law review, and it is due in a couple of days. I already have an acceptance to another school, which I will likely be transferring to.
Assuming I am able to use my comment for a write on competition at the transfer school, would submitting it to my old school make it so that I could not re-use it?
