I'm asian and we are not considered a minority because of our culture and our take on education. We basically are treated like middle classed caucasians so for those of us who have immigrant parents who do not speak a lick of english and work 60 hours a week making minimum wage, sorry but no breaks.


Actually...asians ARE considered a minority, but not an UNDER represented minority for law school purposes. An underrepresented minority is one where there is a negative disparity between the percentage in society versus the percentage as practicing attorneys. Ie: 13% hispanics in the US vs. 3% hispanic lawyers. Yet, there are 4% asians in the US vs. 9% (I think) lawyers.

However, as someone else stated, socioeconomic factors are also taken into consideration when admissions decisions are made. You must incorporate these factors into your personal statement...or, some schools allow a supplemental statement to discuss these situations.

spelling fine.  place one ankle behind other and dip slightly by bending at knees.  you'll need this for when in court.

the technique also doubles as a pivot on the dancefloor.
