Am I considered a minority?

Am I considered a minority?

I was adopted.... I am of "unknown" ethnicity.  Am I grouped as a minority?  Does this improve my chances of acceptance?

Thanks!

No, it probably won't. But you can make a good personal statement out of that.

Yea that'll make a great persnal/diversity statement.

Have you looked for your parents or have any medical records that would indicate?  Not as much for URM, just for knowing!

Tried, info wasn't available.  The state did take my $60 for looking though!
