I hope it helps; I login to Harvard's everyday!  :D
(Not that I really think it will change before I receive my decision one way or another.)

I logged into Michigan's pretty frequently, and I was accepted quickly...

I doubt it.

BTW... you need a "view" (Ron Paul) option.

If they don't, they should. It would be hilarious to see how often people login to the status checkers, especially the ones that only update once/day.

Got it!

It would be easy to keep track of how often you login. I guess it comes down to whether adcoms would learn anything useful about you by knowing how often you check their status check. If you check it frequently, you're saying to adcoms one of three things:

1) I don't have anything better to do,
2) I'm obsessive compulsive, or
3) I really want to go to your school

1) and 2) would probably hurt you, but 3) might actually help. Anyone ever heard anything from an actual adcom on the subject?

I hope that they are busier looking over apps and making decisions rather than sadistically keeping track of applicants' OCD.

you bet they do. From my undergrad experience, i will tell you they do. When i was doing my undergrad transfer, the admissions director told me they knew i was interested in their school based on the amount of time i checked on my admission status and does it change anything--i dont know

Maybe!  I've wondered the same thing.  I must have checked my status at GULC 1,000x. It didn't help me get in, BTW.
To put it bluntly, I seem to have a whole superstructure with no foundation. But I`m working on the foundation.
