...considering that it makes their admissions so transparent, and flagrant yp's so obvious to applicants who care?

ahhhh, the internet makes everyone's life more interesting and job more challenging . . . .
they probably get pretty irritated that there's so much communicating going on.

How long have law school forums been around? Eventually some people who once trolled for Michigan and Penn in these forums will find themselves on admissions committees, able to both anonymously release information to our masses and to willfully alter the system in favor of their schools. In short, it may become a lot easier in some ways and substantially more complex in others.

I'm sure schools aren't too broken up over the fact that LSN has taught people you need to get good grades and do well on the LSAT.

They already release 25/75 numbers, LSN just confirms a pattern and, to some extent, actually humanizes it (if people describe their soft factors, URM status, multiple LSAT scores, etc.).


Obviously, LSN also makes the process seem pretty mechanical, which I'm sure they don't particularly enjoy, but for many (even TOP) schools, the numbers seem to be pretty determinant.
