I'm looking at NYU's application, which says:
Optional: New York University School of Law seeks to enroll a student body from a broad spectrum of society, including members of groups underrepresented in the profession. Please indicate here any such groups in which you would include yourself:
You are encouraged to attach a brief statement describing aspects of this identity that are relevant to your application.
For me, the answer is honestly no. I don't think that lower-middle class white women from Ivy League schools are particularly underrepresented in law. But is it going to look bad if I don't come up with some sort of answer to this? I feel like anything I come up with would be a stretch and come off sounding insincere.
Anyone know of people accepted who did not fill it out?
For some reason, your desire to include that in a diversity essay somewhat turns me off. I think it might turn others off as well unless you come at it from a different angle.
I don't understand. I specifically said I don't want to include that in a diversity essay.
