Where is the URM box or question on law school apps?

Postby almostalawyer » Tue Dec 03, 2013 1:59 pm

Hey guys, I'm working on my law school applications this week and currently filling out my Yale application. I've completed every single page and the only thing I have left to complete is uploading my personal statement and essay. I've gone back through the application three times trying to figure out where to "check" the URM box or where to explain my URM affiliation but I can't find it ANYWHERE. Can someone please help point me in the right direction? I would really appreciate the help! :?

Yale's application doesn't have one.

literally spent 10 minutes looking for it on Y's application too. They just don't care.

Does Yale really not care? I was under the impression that there was a quantifiable boost for URMs in Yale admissions.

This is where a diversity statement comes in handy.

Gotta admit, I love Yale's style. Simple, succinct and only a $60 application fee unlike the others within their rank.

I think I will apply.

True. If you're not giving out fee waivers at least make that application fee reasonable. Stanford at $100 is crazy.

NU at $100 is crazy, who do they think they are
