You should check the one you have checked, historically. They don't check this information, but if you've done it in the past, there shouldn't be a problem legally nor ethically.

You will get the same bump as any other MA, no matter whether you check 1 box or 10.

Actually, a lot of places get a boner for multi-racial people so check that too.
