I have an ERAS question. Did anyone not put their race and/or ethnicity?
Hi there,
I didn't bother as it was evident from my photo.

I'm not. If people care what race or ethnicity I am, then that's a problem.

Besides, there's no checkbox for Chocolate/Coconut.

My understanding is that they can only download the photo once they send you an invite for an interview.

I haven't yet. I am not sure if I should bother. I don't like the fit of any category. Does anyone have any compelling reasons why one definitely should answer the question?

I would like to know this as well, since I would like to feel that I was accepted for an interview without considering my race. :mad:

Anyone have a good reason?

I kinda assumed it would not actually be given to the programs, but would be used for statistical purposes later on. Maybe someone should check it out. I really don't care enough to bother.
