Hi fellow monkeys,
I will be applying to BSchool in the next 2 years and I was wondering if Asians fit the URM category? I understand Asians as a whole are not minorities in any case (especially in finance and in B-School), but the term "Asians" is relatively vague considering there are so many types of Asians. Indians and Chinese students make up majority of the Asian population in schools, but what about the other Asians i.e. Sri-Lanka, Nepal, Thailand, Cambodia etc.?
Do you think adcoms would consider, lets say a Thai student, as an URM? Assuming he/she highlights their background in their application?
I am an Asian myself.
