Current Law Students / How bad will the hiring market be in 2008-2009?

I am no economist, but there has been a lot of data showing that an fairly severe recession is ahead. 

With the jobs/law student ratio already very tight, will there be a lot of no-offers or soft offers given this summer?

My guess is yes.  Someone convince me otherwise.

Current Law Students / Law review surprises
« on: July 05, 2007, 07:40:09 PM »
The law review petitioning process at my school is heavily weighted towards petition quality in favor of grades.  I figured that some people who were in the bottom half of the class would have written on.  I am not surprised I was not selected.  What shocks me is that some of the people who are in the top 2% (4.0, 3.9, 3.9)failed to make the cut. I know these top of the class people worked their asses off on the petition.  Two out of three of these people got best brief or honors in legal writing. 

This leaves me to wonder,

is there any real correlation between grades and being able to write a case comment?
