I've wondered about this. Do those schools not give a URM boost to any Hispanics, or do they give one to all of them? I have yet to figure out a clear answer to that question.


Ironically enough I think I stumbled upon the answer while updating my LSAC account's address. Under the ethnicity portion there is a box to checkmark whether you want to send this information to law schools or not. This pretty much answers my question.

don't force the ds.

if you can cover ds content in your ps and still demonstrate why you're going to law school, then i wouldn't write a ds.
