Just Curious: Demographic Qs

Postby freddie » Thu Oct 06, 2011 6:34 pm

Responding to demographic questions (about ethnicity/race) is optional in all the applications I have seen so far. Is there a downside to responding for non-URMs? Or do these questions have little/no impact on admission decisions and is being seen as forthcoming a plus in its own right?

Thanks for your thoughts, TLS.
