Of course not! 

Everybody knows that Asians don't suffer from extreme language/cultural differences, outright racism, housing discrimination, or other estrangements from the racist white majority power structure.

In fact, if you are looking at the West Coast, in particular, Asians tend to have to meet an even higher standard than wasp students, since they are viewed as "over-represented" minorities.

Before Prop. 209, the medians for admission at Berkeley et al. were significantly tougher for asians.

No.  Only the traditionally stupid minorities get to reap these unconstitutional benefits.

Sorry, but it looks like you're out of luck in this one.  It kind of sucks that there are minorities, and then there are minorities given preference considering law school admissions.  Best of luck to you.

absolutely not, because we are not underrepresented. (fortunately and unfortunately)
