also, there's a somewhat ridiculous notion surfacing in some of these posts that there is some definitive, common URM experience...which is pretty much bullshit.
OP - do whatever you want, its your decision.
yeah ty, that was what i was kind of getting at. just because someone hasnt had to deal with cultural stigma associated with a minority group doesnt mean they cant identify with them or even put it down on LSAC.
that isnt even necessarily the reason why AA was created (mind you, it could be, but it could just be a part, diversity may be another -- etc., we dont know, and up to how colleges want to treat it)
