URM Forgot to Mark Ethnicity/Race on LSAT

Postby WhipIt » Sat Dec 07, 2013 6:23 pm

Hey, I'm an AA who just took the Dec LSAT and forgot to mark/bubble-in my race/ethnicity on my answer sheet. Will this affect my URM status being reported to the law schools I apply to with the score from that test? Any help is appreciated, thanks. :| :?:

I think that question is optional as is.

Although it's an optional question, it's still something that I'd like to report, considering the strong AA URM boost. I selected my ethnicity on my LSAC/CRS account, but I'm not sure which selection will be sent to the schools I apply.... any insights?

The answer sheet says answers to those optional questions are for statistical purposes only. For LSAC's statistical purposes. So to answer your question, it doesn't matter either way.

As long as you indicate your race/ethnicity on each individual school's application regarding demographics (assuming that you want to, as it is also optional on applications), that is how you will make the school aware of your URM status. Hope that helps!
