Title: Is being half Palestinian a bonus?
Post by: mwhuzain on June 16, 2013, 01:44:01 AM
I have the Middle Eastern last name, since it was my dad who was born and raised in the West Bank. I just don't know if it's worth mentioning (usually apps don't have a specific box for middle easterners, so I have to check "caucasian").

I mentioned it to Pepperdine at the beginning of their "Christian Values" essay, since he was born in the Church of Nativity.

Never in my PS, though (it's about the month I did in juvi and my attorney who influenced me to turn things around and start helping other juvenile delinquents).

Should I slip it into the PS somehow? All opinions appreciated!
