<p>I heard from some places that checking off Asian on the app could be a bad thing, since there are so many Asians at top colleges. Is this really true? Usually you can figure out someone's race by their names anyway...</p>

<p>This has been beaten to death on many other forums, but yeah if your name sounds Asian, they will be able to tell regardless.</p>

<p>my last name is von ***, do you think they'll believe i'm african american? lol (j/k)</p>
