"Ethnic data now incorporate maximum reporting, which means that candidates may select multiple ethnicities. All selections are counted in each ethnic group. As a result of this overlap, summing the ethnic category totals will yield a larger number than is represented by the "All" group total."

They'll treat you like any other non-URM candidate as I understand it. But I'll add that on an intrinsic level we all tend to understand that growing up mixed anything makes for one hell of a ride in this crazy country, regardless of socioeconomic status and minority status. Similarly, not all asian subgroups are alike or equally privileged. This could lead to compelling PS or diversity statement material.

Good luck!
