    No way. Asians are OVER-represented minorities

    Asians are not under represented minorities but are still classified minority.

    Nope. URM means people who are UNDERrepresented in Medicine.

    Thanks for the quick replies. I knew I could count on SDN for fast answers.
    One more thing. Is over-representation classified everywhere, or just in certain states? I live in Texas, would it still be the same?

    There are actually quite a bit of Asians in Texas (i.e. Houston mostly, Vietnamese residents) so the Texas med schools also have an over-representation of Asians.
