Will the Medical School staff have a problem with this-especially the interviewers. My first language was not english-it is arabic and then I learned english and My family is very very poor.
Am I a URM? or Can i be?
No. Correct me if I'm wrong butI understand that Egyptians in Egypt do NOT consider them Africans and believe themselves separate from those who live to their south.
Don't think that adcoms don't see through that bull ****.
