Looking at law firm profiles, it seems that Asians aren't overly represented, at least not more so than whites. I just don't think they'd think it's a bad thing or good thing. What type of South Asian are you?

Haha... I don't think you need to worry about landing a job! =D

East Asian... sweet, me too. Although, I've always thought it was Southeast Asian.

Why are you even interested in this thread. You have nothing to worry about since you're at HLS.
