    I think people here think I am picking only African American. I could pick both AA and White. And under AA, I could put Egyptian/North African. That way, I picked two things I identify to.

    They can't say anything If I put half-white, Half-black. What did you tell the director?

    My hair curls up into an Afro and I tan easily. This is complete proof I have African American in my ancestry. (Do you see pure Arabs with afro hair? Didn't think so.)

    You probably told the director I only picked African American. Why don't you ask her again please. Her final opinion will determine what I can do. But I also want you to know that my race can be multiple things as an Egyptian.

    1. He grows an afro and tans easily, too. Proof of african ancestry?

    2. You have no african american in your ancestry. You have african, no african-american.

    3. Fixed the last bit for you.

    You aren't african. What you're saying is the equivalent of someone with two hundred years of family in Austrailia moving to the United States and calling themselves british-american.

    That works too. They are indeed British American because that is where THEIR ANCESTRY came from you fool. The real Australians are not where modern Australians came from. I see no problem with this.

    Look guys, I'm open to new things. I'm not trying to get into Harvard, Yale etc. I have a chance to improve my acceptance chance without really lying. It would defy logic for me not to do so. In fact, it is indeed ethical.

    If you have to explain it or rationalize it, then you already know the answer.

    Dam, why is SDN all about trolls and feeding them? Let this bull go and respond to the forum! You guys are vultures.

    I feel like everyone finally understood that I could pass as AA and I was just commenting on it.


    Stop being such babies.

    Hello, I would like to bring this thread back and see if Plauto has an answer to my personal previous question. By the way, I am still deciding what route I should take, completely identify as White, or identify as AA and white. What do you guys think? Honest enough?

    I'm Egyptian here too. I thought about checking off AA, but the thing is as you said before Egyptians are mixed. I'm from Africa, but I'm not black and not caucasian either, and middle eastern isn't a race. Its very confusing, not just for Egyptians but for the whole northern african people. We can't identify ourselves as caucasian because we are not, or black because we are not, but we are Africans. Egyptians are Africans/middle eastern/Arabs/Caucasians/Hispanic-like.

    While registering for the mcat i had to check a race and an ethnicity off of a list and one of them had pakistani, chinese and even samoans but the only thing that wasn't there is an Arab or north african or anything to identify the people of this region. The question said check all that what applies so I checked "white" and "black or AA" that way I made sure to state I'm African but i'm not black. I think it is close enough.

    In psychology, I believe they call this "attention-seeking behavior".

    like someone had already said, this would be more aligned with histrionic personality disorder, if she really has a personality disorder...i think it's just a typical case of attention whoreness.

    Can't reveal source. Student applies as hispanic, thinks they can get away with it because they're filipino with spanish last name. Doesn't mention anything about being hispanic or filipino during interviews. Gets in, shows up at second look and reveals to other students in his/her class that they are filipino believing it doesn't matter. Adcom finds out, is upset, and tells student to not come there after being accepted. Was student's only acceptance so far, methinks they may have to reapply or just show up at orientation. Explaining why they got accepted but didn't end up going will be AWKWARD in the next set of interviews.
