    I'm not sure if you're asking a question or not. However, you only get URM status for being biracial if at least one of your two races is a URM, which Caucasian and Malaysian are not.

    oo yeah that was the question, thanks.

    well maybe I should correct my question

    I was reading this one website (ivysuccess.com) and it listed Biracial applicants along with Latino, Native American ,etc. This is what gave me the assumption that biracial applicants are given a minority status. Any ideas?
