Or you megapoast until any posts with personally identifiable info are buried. :lol:

Seems to work well.

Just like they "consider" all the soft factors in your application. I maintain that all they really care about is GPA and LSAT. Even if you're an insufferable asshole they'll gladly collect 3 years of tuition from you, especially if you're an asshole with good numbers they can report to US News. Let's not act like law school admissions are holistic enough to give any real credence to your online persona.

I wonder what would happen if I apply to UC Irvine and they discover who I really am. I guess they'll be receiving an application from me this October 8)

Why do I need to be careful about my identity? Because I'm kind of a big deal. At least my cat thinks so.
