Not sure I want a student making that decision...

They serve as counsels in adcomm. However they do not have votes, whereas the faculty members do.

I've talked with the students who are involved in the process, and they seem to take it pretty seriously. No 1L's are allowed to do it. In either event, I don't think you're conceivably helping your chances by checking no. That might simply mean they don't forward your app over to Committee Review and reject or waitlist you outright.

Good points. I guess I shouldn't worry too much. I'm sure they've got good people on it. Thanks for easing my mind. :)
