Have you noticed that on this section it almost always says, "Your answering this question is voluntary. It will not affect our decision as to your candidacy for admission," or something to that effect. Are they lying to me when they say that? It seems that everyone here believes that URMs have an advantage in the application process, so WTF?
Minorities have a big advantage. If you are a minority - check the box.
P.S. FOTCs kick azz.

But yes, if you are an Under Represented Minority it would be most advisable to check the corresponding box. And i guess it really can't hurt if you're a plain old minority also.Quote from: steuby on February 17, 2008, 07:41:36 PMP.S. FOTCs kick azz.Yeah, they most certainly do!
