Can AdComms see how often you check your status checker?

Postby Steve2207 » Fri Dec 07, 2012 9:11 pm

And if so do they care?

They could, I have no idea if its set up that way. But no, there is no way that they care.

OP the above two posters are totally wrong. The more you check your status checker the more adcoms see that you're interested in their school and the more likely you are to get in.

But the fact that you took the time to post this when you could've been refreshing the status checker probably already means your chances are shot

I’m not sure if this is a serious response, or if you’re messing with me to keep me wasting my days away on the status checker. Nonetheless, I sent out four applications. I check my top two picks 5 or 6 times a day. I check my third pick probably once a day, and I have already been excepted to the fourth ( got a decision 6 days after sending the app).

If my top two do see the logins, I think 5 or 6 logins a day implies that I have a significant interest.

They could in theory, but I doubt they check. With tools like this: --LinkRemoved-- they're meaningless to adcomms now anyway.

Yes they can see how often you check, it has been mentioned in the Michigan admissions blog.

Really doubtful they would care but 5-6 times is excessive.

Adcomms give you a score on your application. They then multiply this score by a coefficient that factors in how often you check your status. It's only a 1.01 value, but if you do it a few thousand times over the next month or so, it can be the same as a retake of a point or two on the LSAT.

So then it is better to not use this --LinkRemoved-- , which was provided by the above poster?

I hope you're kidding. *They don't keep track.* In fact, those are provided by LSAC, so I take back what I say about being able to keep track if they wanted to. Go ahead and use that or don't, no one will ever know.

Also it's "accepted" not "expected" as you said earlier.

This was different. They checked how amny people attempted to log into the "Accepted students" portal hosted on their site, not the LSAC checker.

No need to be offended, I was just asking a simple question, and if not using it helps my chances, even slightly, then I certainly want to do that.

Oh fair point you may be right. I thought I had read both though, something about waiting till the end of the cycle and looking back to see who tried to log into the status checker the most.

Nope go back and re read the post. Also I repeat they host their own status checkers unlike everyone else except a few others.

Bottom line, and I just want to clarify, I didn’t mean to offend anyone, I am just anxiously awaiting a decision like many others during this time of the year.
