Mission accomplished! I got the summary of the paper submitted to Stanford University, and I have received confirmation of receipt. I don't know whether I will win the contest, but I feel certain that I'll get the final article published somewhere in the next six months (the hope is for publishing a law review version and a business review version.) I'll know the outcome in a couple of weeks.
While I still have to devote significant time to writing up the final article, I will be posting on a daily basis from here on out.
