I know this seems like a mundane issue, but should I select and choose to reveal my ethnicity? I'm Asian and I don't know if marking this would affect anything. Officially I'm the opposite of a URM, so I don't know if this would have a net-neutral affect, or if this would actually hurt my odds.
I also personally disagree with these types of questions and normally mark decline to state. What should I choose for the LSAC registration?

Asian actually is helpful for hiring. Asians count as "diverse" for things like diversity scholarships. I'd generally advise not to mark for undergrad admissions, and that it doesn't matter for law school admissions. Definitely join your law school's APALSA and get that on your resume if your name isn't obviously Asian.
