Iranian/Persian, Kurdish, Afghan URM?

Postby Bruins101 » Sun Oct 10, 2010 7:48 pm

Are there any middle eastern ethnicity who are given URM's or are they treated like Asians and ruled out because there's many of them in college/grad school? or would it depend more on the location of the school?

No.

URM = African American/Mexican/ Native American/Puerto Rican

If you are in mesopotamia, less than 500miles from the tirgris you get the AA URM status. If you are in the Levant you get Mexican. And North Africans get the Puerto rican boost (unless your great grandfather was ever baptized in a church that was older than 100 years on the fifth day of a month. )
