Do admissions officers check LSN?

Postby iamgeorgebush » Tue Nov 05, 2013 8:35 pm

I want to announce my first acceptance to the world on LSN, but I have this gnawing feeling that doing so would be imprudent, for fear that admissions officers from other schools might find me out. Anyone think admissions officers check LSN during the cycle?

They probably have better things to do, but if you're feeling paranoid, then don't. And anyway, I thought LSN profiles were anonymous.

Oh it is anonymous, but I suspect I'm the only person with my LSAT/GPA combo (or one of less than five, at most), so I'd be easy to identify if adcoms did go looking around.

I know this (which is why I don't post my numbers on TLS), I just want to know if they check LSN, maybe when looking at financial aid packages or something.

You can fudge your numbers a little bit, and then correct them after the cycle.

Huh, I guess they really don't have better things to do.

Who cares if other schools find you out? What is the ramification? They won't admit you?

Why is everyone so worried about this? Of course they know you're applying to other school and might have gotten accepted elsewhere.

Honestly they have better things to do. However, I decided to use a different user name than on TLS because in the slight chance they can tell on LSN that it is me, I don't want them to be able to link it to the stupid shit I say on here. Of course I could just stop saying stupid shit, but I will pass.
