U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT — It’s an open secret that admissions officers across higher education may review an applicant’s web presence, from online publications to social media accounts. A 2018 survey of law school admissions officers by Kaplan Test Prep found that 56% said that they’ve looked at applicants’ social media pages when evaluating them, and 66% said they’ve found things that hurt applicants’ chances of getting in. While law admissions officers don’t have time to track each candidate’s online footprints like a bloodhound on the hunt, it won’t look good for an applicant if a cursory search reveals signs of poor judgment.
