Do I have to list my ethnicity on the common app and for standardized testing? I think it would harm my chances of getting into any top college (I'm Asian).
Earn karma by helping others:
I asked and AO if I had a greater chance of being accepted into a Math program because I was female. I was told that there is no consideration given for race/gender, just looking for the best fits for the school. That may not be true for all schools, but this was a top West Coast school. YMMV.
