"hinking specifically about the socioeconomic questionnaire on the Berkeley app but I'm sure multiple instances of this exist.
I'm just kind of hesitant about submitting it. I *am* a URM, and my parents are separated, but my mother's income is on the higher end because of how much she works so that she can send myself and my siblings to school(she works in the medical field).
I don't know, I just have this idea in my mind that they might get the wrong idea about my socioeconomic status. Not that there's anything wrong with being in a higher socioeconomic category, but I wouldn't want them to give me a negative hit when our lifestyle probably doesn't fit the picture they might have of our income bracket."
It was suggested that I could write an addendum, but is this necessary or even smart? It could come off like begging for pity/charity...
Thoughts? Anyone had a similar experience?
I'm hoping to send this app out tonight, everything else is done

Kind of a catch-22 I suppose...but which do you think is more detrimental?
