Handicapped students

Postby wolfpack11 » Fri Sep 24, 2010 11:42 pm

Do handicapped students receive a boost similar to the "URM" boost ? I have seen some law school websites throw in disabled students in their diversity sections, and I am curious if anyone knows a lot about this topic.

No, because that would make too much sense.

Fill out a diversity statement.

If you're thinking about pouring acid in your eyes for Yale, it's prob. not going to happen.

The only boost I can imagine is working into a personal statement about how you have overcome the challenges of your disability etc etc.
