there must be at least one person here that goes to a T14 LLM!

I'm in no way qualified to answer, but I've spoken with two professors about this option.  Apparently, LLM programs are no very difficult on admission criteria.  They told me around Top 1/3 should be a definite acceptance.  I'd say since you go to a Top-20, you might be ok in the Top 1/2.

Again, this is all hearsay.

Well, if we could get you to repost this while excitedly observing a car accident, we'd be totally fine.

Heh.  I know this was a joke, but the hearsay level at issue is the professors' words, not the poster.  His excitedly uttering the post would not help.  Now if the profs were excited, believed they were dying, etc., then we could avoid the hearsay problem.

Isn't this a double-hearsay issue then?
Hearsay 1: Professor's statements
Hearsay 2: Posting about those statements on LSD?

Yes, it's double hearsay if he talks about his statements or if we talk about them, but his post just talked about the profs statements and therefore only contained one level of hearsay.  He said something like, "I know it's hearsay, but a prof said xyz..."  In that post, there is only one level of hearsay.  Any subsequent post relating to his post and the statements attributed to the professor(s...I really can't recall if it was multiple) has at least one more level of hearsay, namely his statements. 

What you suggested was tantamount to a lawyer counseling a witness that they could avoid a hearsay issue if they were excited while on the stand.
