Probably too late now anyway--not that I think it matters.  But if it makes you feel better...

Truth, I don't think you have a reason to be paranoid. From what I've seen your posts are coherent and relevant.  It's not as if you're posting pure ignorance, or stating school preferences, etc.

Chill out.

ETA: I was probably the most identifiable person on LSN in 2004-05 (an adcom admitted knowing who I was), and I ended up fine.

If not you then me...

so I should put my LSN back? It can't hurt anything more? I guess my apps were sent in October, so they already had time to look at all my stuff.

Cornell Deferred me. I just don't want to take any chances.


Truth, I find your Cornell-centrism interesting. I see you sprinkle praise-Cornell dust everywhere you go. I'm wondering what attracts you so strongly. That's one of three T14s that I didn't apply to.

I was definitely one of the most identifiable people from my cycle and it definitely didn't hurt me any (unless that's why Yale dinged me  :D).  I really don't think ad comms care that much, especially since as a black person they're trying to accept as many as you as possible.  I'd be more concerned if I was a white person who was easily identifiable, since they'd have less incentive to accept me.
