I am filling out applications for schools and almost all of them ask for "parent info." I no longer live with my parents and I ahve not even told them I am going to law school yet. This section is optional, do I risk something by clicking the "Choose not to answer" square?

I am a non-traditional student (mid-30's) and haven't lived with parents for many years. I left that section blank and/or marked the box optional. I did call a few schools I was most interested in attending first and spoke with someone in admissions to see if it would have an effect of not. After speaking with them, I felt very comfortable in not including the information. I would suggest calling the schools you are most interested in and getting their take. Good luck!
