PSA About Journal Tryouts: Be Nice

Hey,

Not everyone made the journal they wanted. A lot of people didn't make a journal at all. You're not special because you made the Virginia Journal of X and Y Law. You don't need to constantly announce that "you made the Journal of Law and X" or that you're deciding between two different journals, and will base the decision on which reception has the best snacks. You're not special, you're good at blue-booking, which ultimately kind of makes you a tool, doesn't it? Either way, you're not helping anybody by making others feel bad. On reflection, we feel you should treat your journal acceptances like your grades and announce them, if at all, to your closest friends.

Journal acceptance is posted for all to see. Grades... not so much. Dumb comparison

the comparison is the same if you're talking about not being a douche, though. Think about it.

Your blog is anonymous? I just assumed you were a 1L named Andy.

It's quasi anonymous. Most people at UVA Law know who I am. You know how it is.

You could find out pretty easily by clicking any of the VLW links on the side.
