Mixed race?

I have a friend who is looking into boarding school next year, and she has a question about race. She is mixed race--two minorities, Asian and Middle Eastern--but you probably wouldn't be able to tell if you didn't know. From my understanding, both races, especially Asian, are overrepresented. How will that affect her?

    It won't. People worry too much about race in admissions. What will impact her most is how well her applications fits the school's needs. A lot of Asians are turned down, but then again, a lot are admitted.

    She should focus on being herself.
