Also what format is best for uploading essays? I was initially told by lSAC that files would be uploaded as JPEG but there is no such option.
I answered the question completely and honestly. It didn't hurt that I was mostly applying to peer schools, I guess, but I had no desire to try to ply mind games with adcomms by only listing certain schools that would for some reason make them want to admit me. I don't even know what those would be. Anyway, Dean Perez (and I believe MS9 but I can't recall exactly, I'd need to look it up) said to disclose in full and I trust their advice.
Upload your files as .doc/.docx. I think they also take .rtf. Just make sure they aren't .pdf.
Black_Swan: I would either answer the question completely and honestly (as midnight suggested) or leave it blank. I'm doing the latter, especially at schools that YP. Not trying to pay my $100 only to get WL'd at UVA or Penn.
Last cycle, I went the full disclosure route. None of the schools I did this with waitlisted me (they all accepted me except for one where I withdrew before hearing back). UVA and Penn didn't ask last cycle (nor did the other notoriously YP-known schools)
