I think that they should go beyond that and consider some Jews(those of actual Jewish lineage) as minorities.  They are a slowly dying out with each new generations, where as the aforementioned minorities have been self-sustaining.

I think you may be more likely to qualify for some boost for being intellectualy challeneged.  Unlike Jews, idiots like you are both moderately underrepresented at top schools and multiplying like crazy.  The whole 1/4 Jewish thing sounds like you're claiming that your great-grandmother was an Indian princess.  Which you might also believe.  There's a board called XOXO for people who don't quite understand these things, I know it can be a little hard.


You can shove it!

Ya know, I ask a serious question and you guys respond with some asinine comments WTF.  And no, I wasn't trolling.

Jews represent about 2% of the US population.

that's news to me. 

There may be a lot of Jewish names on law firms back on the east coast but go south and west and see how many firms have Jewish sounding names on them. ;)

Ok, I'll try this again.  I was referring to being Jewish in an ethnic/racial sense (yes I do consider them a race of people, as did Hitler).    Putting aside religion, I do believe there is a physical jewish race that is somewhat separate from the Caucasian race> 

Ok. The answer is still no.

"Historically, minority group members have been underrepresented in the legal profession. A substantial discrepancy remains between the percentage of minority members in society versus the percentage in the legal profession. To promote diversity in the profession, all LSAC-member law schools actively seek qualified African American, Hispanic, Asian, and American Indian students as well as other students of color.  (In addition, many schools consider such factors as economic and educational disadvantage when considering a candidate for admission.) Law schools find that diversity within the classroom enriches the learning process for all students."

Yeah, traditionally people of Jewish faith are pretty rare in law school, or so I hear. 


Thanks for the backhanded comment.  Rare in Law School?  So are Blacks, Hispanics and Asians. ::)

Could being a quarter Jew help get me status as a minority?  I am serious.  Even though I don't adhere to the Jewish faith, I consider my self one in ethnicity. Simply put I don't consider myself purely Caucasian (as I believe the many Jews to be a part of a dying race/ethnicity)  There are only an estimated15 million actual Jews left in the world, so I could have some basis for a claim?
