You hit the proverbial nail on the head gobig. I too don't feel sorry for the Law Review members. Hey, they knew the job involved a lot of work, and if they didn't think they could handle it, they should have thought about that before accepting the invitation.
The fact of the matter is that with a full staff of editors, a staff many times encompassing 10 or more editors, it should not take 2 months to grade all of the submissions! Assuming that there are 10 editors, with each one grading one paper per day (which shouldn't be that much of a stretch), that would be 10 papers in one day! You mean to tell me that with that many editors "diligently" working, they still are unable to grade them in a matter of a few weeks? Keep in mind that these editors are the best and the brightest, or at least that's what we're led to believe, so why is it that they need so much time to get the job done? And in the event that there aren't 10 people grading them, then I ask why not? If there is only a small amount of people (fewer than 5 or so) who are doing the grading, then I counter right back with a suggestion: have more of the editors and/or members do the grading.
I fully understand that the editors have jobs and lives (and my comments should not be construed as showing disrespect to them or the other Law Review members), but so do the rest of us. It's called juggling, and notwithstanding law school/Law Review, most people have to do it in order to be successful.
