URM= Black, Mexican-American, and Native American. As you said, South Asian Americans are actually over-represented in medicine, and many feel therefore that they actually need BETTER than average apps to get in to med school.

Med schools would tend to agree with those people, according to the AAMC's numbers.

I think your friend is confusing "minority" with "under-represented minority.

That's because there aren't very many indians in north dakota in general and since the goal of a school like that is to accept students who plan on staying in the state they are only inclined to match the diversity of the state

Alot of people make this mistake. One of the attendings on my unit said, "Your numbers are below average, but that won't matter because you're a minority." Jerk.

Ur indian...and you spell it with an E?? jesus.... And no South Asian people are def not URM, but certain medical schools will look upon them favorably to increase their schools diversity. If you look at MSAR, it has a demographic breakdown of all nationalities, which includes Indians and Pakistanis.

Indians and Chinese are minorities in th U.S but overrepresented in the medical field. We do not get any freebies.

It's not just "Mexican-Americans" ...the rest of us Latinos/Hispanics are URM too. I'd expect better from a Mexican lol

Lukkie, are you this funny in real life?

All Indian movies(irrespective of genre) have this story-line:
1. Guy falls in love with girl(this usually happens in a far-away forest)
2. Parents of the couple don't like the new relationship.
3. Someone related to the guy gets shot
4. Guy swears revenge
5. Guy gets revenge and dies shortly afterwards.
6. All the other characters die.

Dancing occurs throughout the whole movie.
