Do you mean - if I could choose to become black tomorrow?  Because no, the disadvantages would far outweigh any URM advantage.

(Did you ever wonder at the Christian right's treatment of homosexuality?  As if, yes we all know it's far more fun to be gay, and we'd all be gay if we weren't so responsible.  Gay people are "choosing" the fun way and THAT's why they're bad.  Analagous, is all I'm saying.)

All the question asked was what would you do if you were given a URM advantage. It didnt say anything about chaging races. Just pretend you're living in a world where your race, whatever it is, gets a URM advantage.
I've resigned from the board due to intolerably harassing and verbally abusive riff-raff on this board.

so would you say that I would be taking advantage of URM if I got in to a high ranked school (see list of apps and my stats)?

Hell, I would too, even if I had to kill you and pretend to be a female URM for the rest of my life  ;D

is being a female URM better than a male URM...not to start any fights or anything lol...

I have no idea, I'm no adcomm.
Personally though, if I was to metamorphosize into another person, I'd rather become a woman so that I can take extra long showers etc.
