    Will adcoms think I am gaming the system if I say I am white but look African American?

    They will consider it an unexpected birthday present when they interview you.

    I really want to see what happens with all of these different scenarios that keep popping up on SDN. Like, what would happen if an ADCOM thinks he/she is interviewing a URM but a Caucasian or Asian walks through the door? I know that I'd start laughing at him/her then proceed to grill them.

    LMAO!!!!! :laugh:

    Words cannot describe the lulz I am experiencing right now. I guess he didn't get enough answers in the first 4 threads, so he made a new username and a 5th post. Unbelievable.

    The point to this story? He clearly doesn't agree with checking off the box, and is desperately trying to find some moral explanation to do it. Un-freaking-believable. I have been lurking for years, never have I seen anything like this before.

    Well I guess that's what I get for trying to sdn and study at the same time... wasn't there a thread exactly the opposite of this one too?

    to be fair, in the "has AA gone too far?" thread, someone just posted a news clip where a student was dismissed for self-identifying as african american with white skin. The student was from africa. Leave it to PC USA to confuse "african-american" a national or cultural heritage affiliation with "black" which is a race. I also love the ignorant americans who get pissed off if you dont use "african american" when talking about blacks of other countries.....
    "What about the blacks in spain?"
    "Uh... I think you mean african-american"
    :smack:
