UConn app - Have you ever voted in the USA?

Postby JenDarby » Tue Nov 30, 2010 4:48 am

The UConn app asks "Have you ever voted in the USA? If no, explain"

Tell the truth?

You must have your own reasons for not voting. Go with that.

Just curious what direction people would go if the answer is no on something like this.

You really should vote.

Also, retake.

Is this directed at my 168?

no need to retake for UConn. retake for T14, I wouldn't worry about it. That dude is a jerk. Notice his lack of LSAT score?

As for First question; i don't think they'll really care that much. Just don't say you don't vote because the voices can never agree on a candidate, that won't help.

Notice my lack of an LSAT score? I decided your legal SAT was for noobs.

But yeah, I don't think your response will truly swing your application that much. I'd say go with a Meg Whitman approach, but... I can't tell if that help or hurt her. Probably didn't swing her candidacy that much.

If you really have a legitimate reason, but it's long and convoluted, sit down and write it out. Come back to it two days later, and summarize it in one sentence. Could potentially help your application.
