Race on Application [#permalink]

Been lurking and using this website and forum as a great resource as I've begun my prep work for the whole MBA process. However, there is one question I have yet to find a clear or even unclear answer for as I've scoured the net. I'm a biracial male (black/white). I'm trying to determine what the best practice is for putting race on my application. I'm very new to this whole process. I traditionally "identify" as what I am, biracial, however, I know that black male on application is much more rare and I wouldn't feel unethical by any means putting black male. The question is two fold: (1) What should I identify as my race the application? (2) Is biracial dramatically different than black with regards to admittance?
Somewhat of a sensitive question as many people can become heated about affirmative action. But I'm simply looking for a objective analysis of what the best play is for me.

Nothing to be ashamed of asking. Your job in the application process is to let the school know who you are both as a person and as a professional. So part of who you are is biracial so def mark down what is applicable in most cases you can check off more than one. The value add comes less from just the dearth of being a black male but in the diverse experiences you most likely have from your background and how that has influences some of your life experiences so make sure you tell that story. We have tons of great consultants at Veritas Prep (including me) who specialize in candidates with diverse profiles so let us know if we can be of service to you.
