Two Questions about Applications

Postby Zensack » Thu Nov 08, 2012 7:14 pm

1. Does being Buddhist make me a URM?

2. The application I was just working on asked me to disclose the other schools I was applying for. Can they actually require me to disclose that? How would a large number of schools listed affect my chances (I got a lot of fee waivers at the MINK Law Fair and was planning to fish for good scholarship offers).

Some people advise to list a couple of peer schools, while others say to simply leave it blank.

I'm going with the latter. If it's optional, I don't see any advantage in listing other schools you are applying to.
