I knew that asians were not considered URM. But I was looking at UCLA's business school with my girlfriend and we saw this..."Underrepresented Minorities includes domestic students identified as American Indian/Native American, African American/Black, Mexican American/Chicano, Latino/Other Hispanic, and Filipino."If they count it for business school, I would assume they count that for law school as well. This is great because my girlfriend is filipina. Anyways, let me know what everyone thinks.
I am a non-trad Filipina and I have been checking with the ABA schools here in Northern CA. I have found that all of the law schools here do not give preference to Asians noted in the traditional sense like Japanese and Chinese. I don't know where they stand with Koreans.However, when I spoke with an adcomm, they said that by their definition Native Americans, Hispanics and Black are considered URMs. Moreover, they will give preference in terms of "diversity" to those that are labeled Pacific Islanders such as Hawaiians, Tongans, Malaysians and Filipinos.Glad to know there are some Pinay's on this board!!
