Dean Pless, do you surf the forums on TLS at all or do you just stick to the Illinois stuff? I just wonder because most people put out enough information about themselves for you to research them and figure out which applicant they are, though I highly doubt you would have time to do this. I just think it's be a funny thing to send in a rejection packet;
We regret to inform you that we will not be offering enrollment to you at this time because you are a troll. UIUC does not look kindly on trolling and in spite of your stellar academic record, We here at UIUC really just don't want you on campus.
All of UIUC.
I'm positive it won't happen here since I know our admissions staff is too busy to bother figuring out who is who, but it did happen (and with funny consequences...) a little while ago with a "job" opportunity.

^ That. And like Paul said, they don't have time to really track anyone down. He actually figured out who I am (after I was admitted, thankfully, haha - and that made orientation fun when he called me by my TLS name), but I'm pretty sure that was only because I was talking about something on the forums that I had also emailed him about, so I gave myself away.
