Freaking Stanford. So annoying
They didn't want me for undergrad either , so I ended up going east. I like New England in general, but the winters are painful(literally, I have cold-induced asthma). Guess I'll be staying there for another 3 years though.

I know they aren't usually considered URMs (even though they comprise less then 5% of U.S. population, which ironically makes them a real minority) but are they really on an equal playing field with Whites?
Look up what the "UR" in URM stands for. I'll give you a hint: Asians don't qualify because they are enormously ovepresented in graduate/professional schools.
But feel free to check whatever box you want. Most people lie about themselves online anyway, just rarely are they lying to what is essentially a calculator.
Speak for yourself, I obviously got a URM boost at my school.
