Do you think admission committees are on TLS?

The further down the US News rankings you travel, the greater the chance an adcom is lurking. HYS - not so much. NYLS or BLS, you bet.

Pretty sure Northwestern does. Johann seems a little too responsive to issues that have come up on TLS sometimes. (Of course now I can't think of any concrete examples from the past three cycles.)

The held issue last week and the letter retrieval not working are a couple.

Yale does.

"So, rather than do a traditional "Ask Asha" post this round, I thought I would answer some of the questions -- and correct some of the off-base answers -- which have been circulating in the online forums. Yes, we do read them. And yes, it's not hard to figure out who some of you are. Please be on your best cyber behavior. (And by the way, you guys have way too much time on your hands.)"

:lol: It's hilarious how much extra effort the lower ranked schools exert (e.g. emails, mailers, checking TLS, etc.) in the law school admissions process. If we ever see anyone defending Cooley on here, we'll know exactly who it is...

Of course they read TLS. Why would they not? Imagine if your profs had a forum on which they talked about your class performance all day. We are relevant. Very relevant.

But don't forget Profs. I suspect plenty of Professors read TLS as well.
