Utility of status check pages

Postby Nuhopeful2017 » Mon Oct 24, 2016 9:58 am

Hello,

This might seem like a silly question but is there any real point in checking the online status page most law schools seem to provide you?

I mean they'll let you know when they've come to a decision- it seems like the whole point of an online status page is to alleviate overzealous applicants from worry and prevent them from inundating the school's admissions office with stupid and pointless questions.

But maybe there's a hidden utility to the function that I have not divined?

No, it's exactly the bolded. (Overzealous applicants are pretty much this forum's target demographic so there is a lot of status checker use.)
