interesting
12:16
@GracefulHummingbird1: i honestly don't know if it gives a ton of boost though

@MrDonut: that's true, but harvard gets the pick of the litter
CurvedAbsurdKobold
12:16
yeah it's unclear tbh
12:16
Yeah sorry I'm framing this whole convo in context of HLS admissions
CurvedAbsurdKobold
12:16
ik schools care about their lgbtq+ demographic
12:16
KJDs in relation to their chance at HLS
CurvedAbsurdKobold
12:16
ah yeah that makes sense
12:16
yeah lgbtq+ certainly doesn't hurt

i just wonder how much if at all you need to work it into your narrative for it to make a difference
I feel like being LGBTQ+ is basically a tier 3, they're definitely over represented at T-14 schools
12:17
heyyyyy
GracefulHummingbird1
12:17
or if just checking that box is enough
12:17
You have to work any T3 soft into a narrative IMO
CurvedAbsurdKobold
12:17
@GracefulHummingbird1: i worked it into my narrative but idk if it matters that much
12:17
First Gen/Poor kid is great but they wont even know that without a good DS
12:17
@GracefulHummingbird1: checking the box might still have some impact because they like reporting how high their lgbtq+ percentage is
CurvedAbsurdKobold
12:17
at the end of the day ur still bossting their demographics
GracefulHummingbird1
12:17
right
is there a way to find similar applicants without a GPA? im an international and only have a rating
GracefulHummingbird1
12:19
but you also still check those boxes for first gen and im pretty sure they can figure out if you're wealthy or not largely based on where you're from
GracefulHummingbird1
12:19
so i doubt working it into your narrative is a necessity
12:19
I definitely think its necessary
12:19
At least a little
12:19
The whole point of those softs is you're supposed to bring some unique perspective based on it
BrooklynMidnightRain
12:20
I basically made that my statement
12:20
@GracefulHummingbird1: at this point u got a kj1 without a ds so you're killing it and you obviously have something they're looking for
GracefulHummingbird1
12:20
i just don't think growing up poor defines me so i didnt make it my statement but they also just know that
GracefulHummingbird1

purr thanks bobcat

i did end up working it into my statement because i didn't have much else to add
