I think you should be okay... did you mention this on your law apps?

For schools that asked for tribe I put: Muskogee (No tribal ID number)

But only a few gave that option.

I believe the bar looks at the application of the law school you attend, so this may help (documented history of claiming NA heritage)

This is what I assumed... its on my college, highschool transcripts, LSAT, SAT, all the way to the CTBS in 2nd grade. Lol.

niiice i'm in the same boat as most of you...mom's arab, dad's irish-american, i end up with the whitest name ever and confuse the hell out of most people i meet. i identify equally as an american and a syrian, maybe because i never spent more than 5 years in either country. when i apply next cycle i will probably be checking "other"
