Chances of Asian getting into diversity fly ins
So I've found that many of the top colleges offer a "fly-in" which covers for nearly all related costs for you to visit their campus and if you were to accepted in one, it does slightly boost your chance of getting accepted (and for few colleges like Williams, it's near guaranteed acceptance). I know for a fact that WOW had accepted Asian students who are not socioeconomically disadvantaged in the past, but I'm wondering if other programs, like John Hop's HOME, MIT's WISE, and Pomona's POP are also like that or if they are more exclusively targeted toward a certain race judging by the pictures they show on the websites. Should I still bother taking the time to apply to these even though I am Asian? I am a low income student and qualify for free lunch, if that makes any difference.10 replies
