Interesting that you juxtapose placing an article in a top 20 law review and summiting Mt. Everest. According to a website I just visited, about 150 people summit Everest each year, and about 5 die. Hard to say how many try each year but in total over the years the number is between 4,000 and 6,000.

So it looks to me like it may be easier to climb Mt. Everest than to place in a top 20 law review, but as far as I know there are no recorded deaths arising out of the attempt to place in a law review. It's also a lot cheaper to place an article. My former law partner Lou Kasischke paid $60,000 in 1996 to be part of the ill-fated group that was the subject of Into Thin Air.

I think I'd go with being more patient.
