Heh... I can see people wanting to stay anonymous about their actual school, but at least the tier would be useful (HYS, CCN, Lower T14, T1, T2, T3, T4, Indiana Tech).
Also, stating the firm name sounds reasonable if it is a ding, but I'm not sure it would be wise to state the actual firm name if it is an offer.
Totally fair, I agree with all that.
Mainly the specific dings are important for the community IMO. It's anon and there's very few jobs so not like someone will know who you are or think less of you.
How would it be unwise to anonymously say what firm you got the offer from? All the firm would know if they lurk on the site is that someone they offered is on TLS. Even if they knew specifically it was you, they wouldn't know your handle and would only know that you exist in some form on TLS. They gain little information and can't trace back anything else you've ever said here.
I think that's fair, but obviously people are overly paranoid and we should just accept it as such. I mean, you decided to make that point anonymously too after all
Anyway, at the very least specific dings are good so people have a decent opportunity to assess their own chances. That's why this thread exists, so we can share helpful information. Vague dings aren't really helpful because we already know the dings are coming through fast and furious. That was the major point I was trying to make, don't want to belabor it more than I already have.
