Is there some sort of list or set of guidelines describing what races/ethnicities law schools generally consider to be URMs?
My mom was born in Morocco (africa), and my father and all my grandparents were born in Algeria (again, africa).So.. I'm "african-american" right?Well.. the thing is, I'm white. If you saw me, you'd think I was from western europe (people guess Spain a lot)But we all know that "african-american" is just a PC euphemism..So.. how do I find out if I qualify as a URM?Also, while my "ethnicity" is african american, my "race" is Berber (which explains my complexion).. so.. which would it be best for me to put down? African American, Algerian, or Berber?When I was applying for undergrad, I checked off African American, and I started getting all these things from schools with pictures of black people on them.. Not everyone in africa is black! But, again, that brings us back to the whole PC thing..So.. anyways, I'll restate my questions What should I put down as my race/ethnicity (based on which one will most likely qualify me as a URM without pissing the ad coms off)?Also, should I write an addendum? Send a photo and a photocopy of my birth certificate?
