Long time lurker here who just decided to post. Iíve read through quite a bit of this thread but didnít find anyone with nearly the same numbers / situation as myself.
Any advice on my chances will be greatly appreciated.
Multiracial Ė White, Middle Eastern (Yes I know it counts as white), and black.
I have one grandparent who is white, one who is black, and two who are Lebanese.
I grew up in Benin (3-18 yrs old), completed high school there and went to the States for college. I am an American citizen, born in Boston.
Does this qualify me for URM status? I listed all of my constituent races on all of my applications, attached a diversity statement explaining how my views have been affected by my various races, and growing up in Benin.
Decent soft factors but nothing astronomical.
I have already been accepted to UVA.
I was wondering what my odds would be at:
Michigan and Berkeley
