The application to UNC Law School actually uses the word "queer" in it's Q&A. When queried, we were told the question was not required, but of course that fact was nowhere indicated on the application. Those in charge of this said it was "to communicate a more welcoming environment," which is to say, I suppose, that it would be unwelcoming not to ask potential law students explicitly if they were "queer."
