There are other posters who can speak to this with more knowledge, but it seems like people who mark Native American are given a lot of scrutiny because everyone tries to claim some 1/32 of Native American heritage and are somehow, secretly, Cherokee princesses. Unless you're willing to talk about how your Native American-ness affected your life (which it hasn't), then don't anticipate much of a boost.
Thank you so much for your replies. I do appreciate them. To the person that said that being native American hasn't meant anything to my life: you don't really know me or anything about my life, so to claim that I would do this for a boost is insulting when you don't know me.
No no no no no no no no no no no no I will most definitely check that I am white because I am.
