Minority? Yes.  Underrepresented minority (URM) for law school?  No.  (edited to say, usually no, but can depend on the school).

Should be a total global count.  Then Hell no

But as the model minority they'll never perform as you have suggested!  I'm asking the serious question of should we or should we not make that judgement based on world total population?  If not now, then give it 15 years and ask this question again...oh, wait it'll already be asked.

Model minority?  Lol, that's pretty classist and an ignorant statement and I will only address it with a question; Why do you believe that asians are the "model minority?"  Who gave them this title?  You may choose to ignore this question if you do not have an answer.

If Asians are URMs then Jewish people need a leg up in show business. (I'm part Jewish where is my big break huh huh?)

Most asians dont like the model minority label, actually.  From my understanding, it's created by whites to use against other minorities, specifically URMS (asians do fine, why cant you) and to brush off any concerns brought up by asians in this country (racism? asians make plenty of money, what racism).

Obviously, those white people have never been to southern CA. :-D.  This nation is so quick to forget the Asian internment camps too, is this something Asians have forgotten too?
