I've heard this applying to recruiters and companies, and often not submitting an offer because of racy facebook pages with photos of drinking or foul language.

Does anyone know if admissions officers use facebook regurlarly to evalauate students?

Not to sound old, but I would assume that everyone -- would-be employers and grad school admissions officers included -- googles people these days. And since FB has such a high page rank, I would assume that many of these people end up on your FB profile.

So... perhaps better safe than sorry?

Good luck!
