Need a QUICK answer - NYU App - "Required" question 7

Postby PicovAndropov » Thu Jan 14, 2010 3:35 pm

Question reads: "If you have ever served on full-time military active duty, was your discharge under conditions other than honorable?"

There are "yes" and "no" boxes to check to its right. This is in the group of questions that NYU lists as "Required." Thing is, I've never served in the military; I'm a college student. Should I leave this question blank, or click "no"?

Sorry if this seems like a stupid question, but I'm frankly not sure how to answer this "Required" question given that I've never served in the military.

Thanks, just wanted to make sure I wasn't forging a nonexistent military history by checking "no."

pretty sure if anyone accuses you of that you should hit them - because they're idiots

That is why the application says "IF you have ever served on full-time military active duty...." not "Were you every discharged under conditions other than honorable?"


Not really. Because the 'if' portion of this statement is not True, he shouldn't have to check either yes or no. Since it's apparently required, No is obviously the best choice given the restriction.

Oh, wow- I screwed up. I meant to say check nothing. Sorry! :lol:

Already submitted with the "no" checked, but I'd imagine it doesn't matter. I hope it doesn't. Seriously, it should be pretty clear that I'm an undergrad.
