I'd rather not share my stats...they're just ok...

I just mean in general. Does my status as an Asian American female help me, hurt me, or have no effect?

asian girls are cool, but...... they are so uptight.
why not share your stats? you get the most accurate feedback that way. we are on the internet. no need to be shy.
beaing asain has no effect. being an unusual asain has plenty effect.

Uhh, ok she doesn't have to share her stats if she doesn't want to.

Your Asian status (unless you are SE asian) might not help you very much at most schools. Asians are not considered URM, so don't depend on that too much. Your female status might add some weight if the school is looking to increase their female population, but those are hard to find. If that is what you are looking for, try browsing through lsac.org to find schools where there are more males than females. Either way though, I wouldn't depend too much on being an Asian American female in terms of admissions. Play up other strengths like EC, WE, or a life-changing experience, its a much better route. Good luck :)

Go to China and call yourself 'Chinese' in Mandarin or Cantonese and see the reaction.

Come here to Japan and call yourself 'Japanese' and see their reaction (a gaijin is just a gaijin- 2-sei or not).

I once went to Ireland and called myself Irish..they gave me a hearty laugh and told me that they wished Americans would just call themselves what they really are- Americans!

I'm not Swiss, Irish or American Indian.  I'm proud of just being American.

Title: Re: Asian American Female
Post by: geezer on February 02, 2005, 07:46:02 AM
There you go!

Seriously, I've seen a lot of Asian Americans visit Asia (Japan, Korea and Vietnam- sorry, not a lot of experience with China) only to find out that they are really just Americans...

I know I'm opening a can of worms, here (and it can't be explained in just one post).  America is a very tolerant country.  Many Asian countries are not- even to their blood in the States.  I know a lot of ethnic Koreans and Vietnamese here in Japan.  Whenever they go back and try to speak the language- they get treated like outsiders.  There's a lot of intolerance here in Asia- sorry to write.  Ten years here has really made me appreciate America...I didn't when I first left the States.
Title: Re: Asian American Female
Post by: NYKnicks on February 02, 2005, 07:49:18 AM
Actually, I was kidding, I've lived in the US ever since I was 3, so that makes for 19 years now. I speak fluent Mandarin however and also a few dialects so it helps me get by whenever I go back to China without any weird looks and I can usually fool most people into thinking I'm a native.

I agree Asia is generally intolerant though, of each other more than they are of Americans surprisingly.

When talking about the characteristics of "asian people" blabla, I feel the stereotype.There are tens of thousand of millions types of asian ppl, who haves different reaction to one thing in different circumstances. How to assert sth in common so easily from this "group"?

I disagree.  I am a Japanese-American female from the deep South.  I live in Japan and the people refer to me as Japanese, not American.  I have to remind them that I am American.  Perhaps if you learned keigo you would have the same experience. 
Title: Re: Asian American Female
Post by: geezer on March 10, 2005, 04:46:04 AM
Ah..'MJ' wa kamen no 'JAPAN' desu ka?

Keigo- yoku shiteiru...Nihon ni mo jyu-nen de insundeiru (this ain't keigo, but I certainly know how to use it).

You're an exception for some reason, but here in small-town Japan (not a big city in Kyushu), you'd still be a gaijin...sorry to be direct, but grow a family and biz here in Japan- not just the few year JET-life thing, and you'll see the difference.  It's when you tell them that you're staying for the duration that everything changes...

Since you're Japanese-American you have some DNA priviledges here (unfortunately, that's how the Japanese see it), but on a long-term basis you're just a gaijin.  I hope that you see it in your time here- it would help to make the Japanese more aware of their growing discrimination against foreigners...

http://www.debito.org/roguesgallery.html

Oh, and how about the Zainichis (2-sei, 3-sei no kankoku-jin)- why aren't they being treated like Japanese?  Their 'keigo' is native unlike yours...

Sorry to slam- demo, wakai, ubu na JET no Americajin wo gaman dekinai (human rights is my second job in Japan)!

Geez

I'm a Taiwanese. I just want to add my 2 cents about this "intolerant" issue.

The ethnicity diversity of most Asian countries (perhaps excluding singapore) are simply much more homogenous than America. 95% of Taiwanese are Han, for example. Therefore the identification of "Taiwanese" or "chinese" or "japanese" refers not only to an ethnicity or nationality, but also to a typical culture. This is very different from the definition of an "american." Having the DNA of these countries doesn't guarantee you a Taiwanese or Chinese or Japanese if you are not part of the culture.

In that sense geezer is correct of saying that Asian countries are less tolerant to oversea descendents than America. However I think America is more of an (welcomed) extreme in this respect than a standard.

Post by: drmanyee999 on May 26, 2005, 09:59:25 AM
I'm 25% Chinese (it's about 50/50 whether or not people others think I'm Asian) and I grew up in England, I would definitely agree with all those that said America is much more tolerant. I find this to be the case not just with white people, but also asians of my age. In England, the white kids (Brits) hated me because I looked different etc, asians of my age thought I was an enigma and adult asians really didn't want to admit my existence. It's that reason which makes me scared to visit Asia.

Interesting!

Just want to add my little advice to this topic and to those American Chinese (ABCs and alike) who are still able to communicate fluently in Mandarin. When encounter a native Chinese for the first time and you are asked "where are you from" in Chinese. Answering like "I am an American" is pretty much the same as saying “end of conversation”. It sounds puerile and defensive. The person asking this question probably knows you are not living in China and might have a US passport, so the question is just asking “what’s your or maybe your parents’ connection with China” more than anything else.
Title: Re: Asian American Female
Post by: Geo_Storm on November 04, 2006, 11:20:30 PM
I think if I ran into a really attractive girl back in China, i might tell her that I hold a Canadian passport and that i'm going to make big dough as a lawyer. She'd want to get with you (marry you) as an avenue to get out of the country. Of course you wouldn't tell her that you don't plan to bring her back to North American with you just yet.

It's a tad bizarre that one rarely sees an asian man with another race as their girlfriend. I don't think Asian women are any more attractive than Asian men. I don't understand why men of other races often have a desire for Asian girls, while women of other races do not have a strong attraction to asian men. Well...besides the fact that asian men are presumed to have small wankers...and asian women are presumed to have a tight...nevermind...

Anyways, in terms of looks, i'd say both are pretty even.
