I am the first person in my entire family (extended) to graduate from college and the only person in my entire family and group of friends to go to law school. Certainly, law schools contain an overrepresentation of those who have lawyers in their family or who have tons of people they know who are educated. I do not.
Most of the people here probably have SOMEONE in their family with a college degree.
An I a URM? No.
Was graduating from college and figuring out the admissions stuff a little harder because I had no role models, no examples of anyone I knew who had taken this step? Yes.
Even so, I did it. I am proud I did.
No one is discriminating against me, but it hasn't been easy.
I am over it.
P.S. How would professors know your religion/ethnicity so they could discriminate against you? I didn't get that part.
