please help me..urgent question

<p>for those international students...
is race really important in admissions?
I know that colleges try to keep the whole balance and all..but just asking</p>

<p>In my case, my race is Asian but I have
a Columbian nationality
would this influence my chances of getting in?
And also...I live in Japan
if I were to apply, would I be considered a international student from
Asia or considered a 'columbian' student abroad?
like i know there is a quota for all the international students.
just curious
