Law School Admissions / Positive Addenda
« on: January 11, 2009, 04:52:33 PM »
I'm wondering if an addendum can be used in order to highlight certain 'plus' points in your transcript...For example taking a 400-500 level class, but being the only undergrad enrolled; or serving, without credit, as a class TA.

Anyone have some input on this? ;)

I'm more worried because my major was kinda a non-academic one, viz., dance...
Not too sure how that would read for admissions committees.

I understand that many Law schools do not consider Asian-Americans as URMs; however, I have been wondering what the situation is like for Asians who were not born in America, or Asians who attended their high school equivalent (Secondary School in my case) in Asia. Assuming this information is included in the Personal, and Diversity, statements -- will those such as I still be considered non-URMs?
