Unfortunately, no. It may actually hurt you (although don't hold me to that). Assuming that your screen name is indicative of your hopes, you should know that Jews constitute 25% of all ivy league students. So giving Jews affirmative action would just be counterproductive. If we were given affirmative action, we would constitute probably half of all ivy league students.

I am Israeli so I hope it does help.... :)
