Can law school see how many schools/which school I applied?

For their online status check, they have the same user name so I wonder why...

No. Also, they don't care.

They can't.

Later, I think in April but certainly no sooner, they can get a commitment overlap report to see if you have multi seat-deposited. Then they start caring. Right now no way of knowing or, as the poster above says, caring much.

They can, but it depends.

They can see all the schools you have submitted a FAFSA app for.

So if I did not submit FAFSA, they would not know right?
But still wonder why they gave me the same username...

first initial, first 4 letters of last name, last 4 digits of lsac account number - nothing mysterious about it, its just how all schools do it. Do you want them to intentionally give you different usernames? That would make much less sense.

I'm not sure where you're getting that idea, but FAFSA explicitly says that isn't the case.

Edit: Correct. This was the case up until the 2016-2017 FAFSA year.
