How Does One Say This?

I feel I ought to note this down, but after four days of trying to write an entry that sounded witty, nonchalant, humble, humourous, and exciting, I decided just to give up and say it straight.

I have been accepted to Law Review.

Hence the new category. In any event, since my friend and fellow Columbia blogger the Serious Law Student wonders if this means 1L is over, I'll have to say I'm inclined to say yes. Stay tuned for some layout changes around here.

Then I'll say it straight too: congratulations !
Congrats! That's an accomplishment!
Congratulations! Um, for us non-legal types. What is the law review?
Like Martin I'm not entirely sure what the review thing means, but I do know that it's a Good Thing, so congrats! :-)
I'd say congratulations, but I think being on Law Review has sucked ;-) Kidding, sort of.
Very nice. Congrats, dude.
Congratulations! Law Review, for those of you who don't know, is something that's hard to get on, and so one deserves congratulations if they manage it. That is all I know.
I think UH sums it up nicely, but, yeah, congratulations.
congrats. i made it too. see you bright and early August 2nd (4 weeks before regular classes start).
"(4 weeks before regular classes start)." My God, for what possible reason?
Congratulations! Hopefully this will reduce the occasional levels of high stress a bit.
Congratulations! I'm not sure if it will reduce stress by any means, but it is a great achievement. Best of luck!
See I told you.
Go you! Tee hee. Unlike UH and Greg, I have very positive -- and biased -- views of law reviews and journals. I am proud of you.
Did you ever have any doubt? Awesome! Congratulations.
I wouldn't say, Chris, that I don't have postive views on legal journals; there's lots that is good. That said, my views are certainly not all postitive. Being an EIC, though, I think your neuroses of a special breed and one that makes your opinion eminently unusable to others considering the merits of law journals. :) How you folks do what you do I shall never know nor understand. I was looking at the final proof (the version for the EIC to review) of my forthcoming Comment the other day and my head hurt after only a few minutes. I can't even go over my work without wanting to throw it down and go play a video game.
Great news, Tony!
Congrats to you, sir. I had a great time on Law Review, even during 2L when it was supposed to suck. I don't know how I would have felt about having to return 4 weeks early, though. We only had to show up like 4 days early. Have fun, and good luck!
Congratulations and good luck!
Congrats, Tony! Wholly great news, and don't worry about the first four weeks---it's overwhelming and a little bit scary, but at the end of it you'll realize that you actually know how to do legal research for the first time. Do your best and don't worry, and be nice to the managing editors in charge of orientation. Especially Brita. All the best, TtP
That is great. I am waiting to hear myself. I am having a heck of a time figuring out what kind of GPA is needed at my school. Your blogg is great. I suspect you will have much less time for it now.
yeah, there's some tension in both congratulating you and asserting whole-heartedly that being on law review blows, but I'll just have to communicate both at once, with utmost sincerity!
