Should I apply for diversity open house?
I recently got an email about Amherst's DIVOH. When I read the email, however, I noticed that they give preference to URMs, first gen, and low income students. I, however, am none of those. I am ethnically Filipino, with graduate degree parents, and upper middle class. Is it worth applying for DIVOH at all?
I could write an essay about being the only ethnically "asian" person in a rural all white school then moving to a diverse school and realizing that, culturally, im not really 'asian"
