Missed Answering GENDER on Flex APP !!

Postby accuratesite2020 » Sun Nov 13, 2011 2:40 am

It is not required and this is why I think I just glossed right over it. Should I contact the schools and advise them my gender. I know this was an oversight, because once it the flex app was done I just quickly sent it out. Thanks.

Should I call the respective admission(s) offices and advice them of the mistake or should I not worry about it? thanks

If they ask just say you're asexual.






ETA: Better yet, give them a long winded rant about how you don't believe in the false dichotomy of 'male' and 'female' and choose only to acknowledge questions phrased as a continuum from Male to Female. As a matter of fact, you find the question biased, sexist, and outdated.

Yah, I would imagine that some people don't do this as a political statement so they might not even realize that it was an error.

Do law schools actively try to recruit female students? I'm male so I never paid attention. I wonder if there is some kind of bump though. Either way, probably not enough of a bump to draw attention to forgetting it.

ETA: just realized this makes it look like I think OP is female. I have no idea and do not mean to imply that. Just a generalization.

Cute, but that's not what asexual means.
