They don't just get it in the pdf view that you see. From the UChi. interview on TLS, it's mentioned that people forget to remove track changes from their PS.

Edit for quote:
TLS: What are some of the most common mistakes that you see on applications — not necessarily in terms of typos or grammar, but of “things not to do?”

Ann Perry: I have to say, typos happen an awful lot. People leaving the track changes on…

I'm kind of curious as to why they get an editable version of our application...

I'm not sure why the LSAC doesn't allow PDF uploads of text documents. I thought the professional standard .pdf

How does one prevent adcomms from seeing the changes?

My guess, in order to play it safe, would be to copy and paste into a new .doc
Thats what I did. I hope...

"The only way to get tracked changes out of a document is to accept or reject them. Choosing No Markup in the Display for Review box helps you see what the final document will look like—but it only hides tracked changes temporarily. The changes are not deleted, and they’ll show up again the next time anyone opens the document. To delete the tracked changes permanently, accept or reject them."
