Does anyone know of any schools that actually give preference to minorities? And what exactly is a minority? Do you get some kind of special notation on your driver's license or something? Seriously though... does anyone have any experience with this?

:eek: :rolleyes: This could get ugly shortly, as it has the beginnings of a URM thread!

Serioulsy, though, OP, minorities do not necessarily get special treatment in the admissions process. You must be referring to underrepresented minorities in MEDICINE, or URM. Do a search; you'll come up plenty of opinions on URM, the admissions process, and affirmative action. Also, here: http://www.aamc.org/meded/urm/start.htm, and here: http://www.amsa.org/div/
