We ask that you put effort into completing the document with as much information as you can possibly add. Where appropriate, please answer the questions with a minimum of 4-5 sentences. Please feel free to write as much as you would like. We want your personality to shine through in this document. The Extended Donor Profile is a document that clients who are interested in purchasing your specimens will review.
Read the questionnaire thoroughly before starting. Most of the questions are mandatory.
- Begin only when you have the time and when you have all the information you need to complete the questionnaire.
- If you have all the information ready, it takes between 1 and 1½ hours to complete the form.
- Avoid including information that identifies you. For instance, if you write “Graduated Cornell University in 2008 with a major in Political Science”, this statement narrows the population for your donations to those males who graduated in 2008 from Cornell University with a major in Political Science. The appropriate way to respond to this question is “Graduated from a top university in the United States with a major in Political Science.
- It is important that you add a personal touch to the profile. Please elaborate where possible. Please answer with a minimum of 4-5 sentences where appropriate.
Example Answer to a Question:
What childhood event left the biggest impression on you? When I was eight years old, my grandfather took me fishing in Sweden for a whole week. We drove up there in his old Ford Taurus and spent the nights in small cabins. We cooked the catch of the day over a bonfire and my grandfather told stories about the old days and about all the important things in life. This was a great bonding experience between me and my grandfather. This created a lasting memory of spending time with my grandfather.
Naturally, we will make sure that your identifying information (name, ID number, email address, etc.) is removed from the completed profile.
