Cherry Smaller or Sundae Bigger? - Law Review Version

 UnknownAdmission rates at "elite" universities fell to a new low for those matriculating in the fall of 2011: 6.2% at Harvard, 6.9% at Columbia, 7.1% at Stanford, 7.4% at Yale.  Stanford Magazine suggests "it's not so much that the cherry is getting smaller as it is the sundae is getting larger."  Applications have doubled since 2000, and more than 35% of applicants do so to more than six schools.  Why?  The Common Application, which now also can be submitted online. 

Before ExpressO, how many law professors would have submitted an article to as many as 100 journals?
