I know that African-Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans are all considered underrepresented minorities, but what is the deal with Asians? For schools like NYU and University of Michigan- Ann Arbor or any schools similar to those do Asians still get any advantage as underrepresented minorities or any advantage at all?

<p>I think Asians are viewed as the same as Caucasians...correct me if I'm wrong anybody?</p>

<p>As for me (a Filipina, but w/a white name), I'm not checking the ethnicity box for any of my applications.</p>

<p>At NYU I think its 14% of the students are Asian and Caucasian are about 42% I believe. And at Michigan I think its 13% Asian to 64% Caucasian. Would they still be evaluated at the same level? I assume at different colleges with less diversity the evaluation would be different.</p>
