Check the box that indicates your majority race (unless you were raised almost exclusively in your minority culture). Write a diversity statement. If you want to be cheeky, check "I prefer not to respond" and write your statement about how hard it is to be mixed race in America (alla To Kill a Mockingbird).
A lot of times a school will have a box that says other ( please explain). So i would just mark other and explain. IMO, you should be consistent in all your apps. Remember before you go in front of the bar they see your law school applications.http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,92108.0/topicseen.htmlhttp://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,91254.0.html
lol! are you sure you're not the hypothetical person. My "friend wants to know." The only reason why i provided those links were simply for reference. The answer to your situation is within the longer thread, even though the original topic was different. I was just making a general statement about "applications" for everyone. That would be very presumptuous of me to say that schools hold onto apps for 3 years. I simply do not know that.But my point is, there is a really simple solution to this issue. Mark other on your apps and submit an addendum. That's it. IMO, what you identify yourself as, should be consistent across all apps.

You get discriminated because you can't hide the fact you are black. ergo, your inability to blend in. So AA is not about cultural diversity, but simply off-setting the fact someone looks different?

Do they say this out loud?
