In Baylor's diversity statement, they do specifically list Asians as URM. I'm thinking this may be a case-by-case basis. I'm half Korean and half Jewish, but I check the Asian box for 2 reasons: I look it, therefore I'm treated like it, and my father died when I was young and I was raised in Koreatown. I get a bit testy about the "Asian" box, personally. There are an awful lot of ethnicities that fall under the category. Japanese and Chinese Americans are the overwhelming majority of Asian college students, but that's simply due to the fact that they have been in this country longer and they have larger populations than other Asian communities. It would be a shame for Philipinos and Vietnamese to lose URM status because the schools are flooded with other ethnicities that in no way represent THEIR culture. I know that the Korean community is booming now, too, but it wasn't long ago when most Americans had never even HEARD of Korea. I spent most of my grade school years being referred to as "that Chinese girl". Regardless, while Asians are well-represented in colleges, they are not well-represented in the law. My .02.
