    So would you want your prospective school to ask this? Would you answer it?

    I-I wouldn't mind answering, cause I don't mind who knows... it's not that big of a deal for me to be open about it...

    But for the sake of others, I feel that as long as the information remains strictly confidential that it could be fine. It's still really odd to have that field on official paperwork though... it just doesn't seem at all necessary. It's personal information that isn't on a need-to-know basis.. :
