I have to out myself on that post to your LSN page, Inspector. It was a guess that would look uncanny if it hit, and it hit. I did the same thing to someone with a Northwestern offer a few months back...hit it right on.

I chose a Chicago offer...and I have decent knowledge of what amounts they throw out...

180.

165 if true.  Good effort, but could have been played out much, much longer.

I disagree. If you let it go on too long, then it just eclipses believability.

At this moment, I have 100% faith that that's true, and he deserves credit. 10 minutes longer and that sinks down to 93%. It's a pretty slippery slope from there.

Maybe I'll wait a while before I totally deconstruct this.

Carry on.

so what you're saying is basically 'no, there's no way admissions officers waste their time looking to see what people say about their schools on these sites?'  1Ls do it.. those UVA kids were spreading the good word the other week, for example... i thought it'd be at least possible admissions people do the same.

or have there already been many conversations about this on LSD and i'm looking about as stupid as dubya talking about how news moves "through the internets"?

Probably the latter.  I haven't been on LSD very long, but I know for a fact that ad comms at some schools troll around here.

I know for a FACT that adcomms troll these sites, because one of the dean of admmissions I conversed with asked me if I liked pugs and admitted to stalking me on LSN. So be careful.
