I'm not sure, I know if you get in ED somewhere schools will find out.

Do schools know where else their applicants have applied to? :?

Sure, some schools (eg. TTT Fordham) asks applicants to disclose the names of all other schools that they have applied to, but is there any way through LSAC they can find out? I ask because if you go to your LSAC profile page, it says how many schools you have applied to (ie. # of LSADAS reports sent out, etc).

I'm just wondering if schools are privy to this information or not. :shock:


I raised it before, they say they do not including Dean Pless. I have no reason to disbelieve him, but still get a feeling they know of each others decisions, at least in the T14...

If they do know somehow, the question is then, do they covet candidates that have applied to higher T14's, or do they give preference to people who has not applied to higher T14's (and will most likely attend if accepted)?

I would like to know this too. Is it also possible that the list of schools that you've applied to compels the school to offer scholarships?
