Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Re: How much Native American must you be to mark it on apps?« on: April 30, 2006, 08:18:02 PM »
I know for a couple of applications I've seen (particularly for the school I'm attending), they ask for your "predominant ethnic background" because they know people will be going out having those blood tests that show they are 1/25 hispanic after which they'll take full advantage by marking that down as their ethnicity. Following that logic, 1/4 native american would not be enough to for you to mark that down on your applications. For people in this situation, I think you should ask yourself a simple question, "Does my appearance and/or my ethnicity make me an easy target for racism?" if the answer is no, well you probably wouldn't qualify for URM status. JMHO.
