If I bumped every time I checked a status checker, I wouldn't have time to constantly check all of my status checkers.

Status checkers are the worst form of customer relationship management I've ever seen from any institution. Nothing could be more cold or compel more people to paranoia than JS1/Held/In Review/etc statuses, many of which aren't even updated in tandem with what's going on internally. The reason people like us become addicted to actually checking them is because acceptances are oftentimes reflected faster on the status checker before an adcom even calls. If I remember correctly, UC Irvine and Yale are the only schools to do away with the status checker. My props to them for recognizing a bad system when they see it.

If only the amount of times you checked a status checker could factor into your decision. Like if a school checked your amount of logins and was just like "Jesus Christ this person must really want to be here, we should put their app on top of the stack!"

Wishful thinking. Anxious thinking. Ridiculous thinking. Eh, it's all kind of the same thinking at this point.

I'm in a cycle of checking my statuses, refreshing the "Law School Acceptances, Denials and Waitlists" board, refreshing "100 Most Recently Updated J.D. Applications" on LSN, telling myself to calm down bc whatever is meant to be will be, breathing for a few minutes, aaaand then repeating.

Y AM I LIKE THIS

If they use any kind of web analytics tool they can, or at least someone in the department can. I sincerely doubt they would bother to pull it up or track it so I also just go ham.
