URM question
« on: September 11, 2006, 02:51:04 PM »
I have a friend who is considering applying to law school. His parents are Brazilian and he was born in Brazil, but he has lived his entire life in the US. Would he qualify as a URM?

If he is Hispanic, Native American or black, then he is considered a URM.

If your friend doesn't know whether or not he is Hispanic, he has bigger problems than considering whether or not to apply to law school.
