They also don't really yield protect, so you're not protecting your application against that kind of scrutiny by writing one. I feel as if I've seen them associated a little with Chicago, but mostly with MVP and, somewhat generally, the rest of the T15 down through Texas/Georgetown.
I have a feeling writing a "Why Yale" would be a bad idea. I've heard of people writing "Why Hs" on occasion. Not sure about SLS.
Planning on writing one for CCN - I've seen them pull some moves that look a bit like YP in the past and I don't want to get dinged or held because they think I'm not interested enough when I definitely am. Unless that would hurt my app more than help it?
