I am part pinoy as well(the part that buys 50 lb bags of white rice at a time). Will most likely end up at U San Deigo or UNC.

Good luck to the rest of you in law school.

Funny how some of you mentioned food. When I was at UW I missed Filipino food. But I never bothered to learn. Now my mom and my grandma are teaching me to cook.

I think of Filipino as a culture more so then an ethnicity. So those of you that say your are half...you may as well be all the way. Filipinos are pretty much a creole cultuire anyway. My niece and nephew are half. Their mom is caucasian, but she craves Filipino food more then most of the family.  ;D

It is nice to see so many of you heading to law school. Representin'

Hey GoHuskies...are you UW or UConn?

I am the proudest of alumnae from the mighty UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON!

Yeah, i'm also curious about filipinos as URMs.  Granted, my application to law school is over 2 years away, but if I knew that columbia accepted filipinos as URMs i would be much less stressed out over the whole process  :)

Also, i am quite amazed at the the amount of flipinos at LSD, nice to know i'm not the only half with the insanity of deciding to do law school  ;D

hahaha!  You're joking right.

Filipinos are NOT URM's anywhere.  Ask any Filipino who has gone thru the application process, and see if they felt as if they received a bump from their race.  I'm sure I didn't.  Good luck though.  I'm always cheering for other Filipinos.
