I'm Sri Lankan, do I classify myself as "Other"?

<p>Hey Guys,</p>

<p>On the common app under the ethnicity/race box do I put asian or other since I am a really underrepresented asian?</p>

<p>Any Feedback Appreciated</p>

<p>bump anyone?</p>

<p>Since you are an Asian, you should probably fill that box in.</p>

<p>Ditto ^^^ Asian.</p>

<p>Since there is a category that applies to you, it is inappropriate to select Other. You may, however, omit the race question altogether.</p>

<p>After selecting "Asian" the online system will then give you a drop down list listing "South Asian" "East Asian" or "Southeast Asian." You can then select "South Asian" Selecting other is not accurate, though you could choose to leave the entire section blank.</p>
