Not answering Sex and Race

Postby JakeL » Fri Aug 20, 2010 11:48 pm

It seems most applications put sex and race as optional to fill out. Provided you are non URM, can it hurt you to not answer these questions? It's my personal preference to not answer them, but don't want to ding myself.

It won't hurt you, unless you're an URM, which you said you weren't. Just put decline to state or whatever, it won't make a difference.
