Hey, both of my parents were born in Argentina and I have a rich Argentine/Jewish culture behind me. I was born here in the US. Am I classified as an "Under Represented Minority"? If so, I was wondering how much this will help me in college admissions, given that I am a strong academic student (I'm a Junior, taking 5 APs, 760 Chem SAT II, etc.). Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Are you Hispanic or European? Are you "brown" or "white"?

If you are of "native" Hispanic Argentinian descent, I guess you could be considered hispanic/latin and a URM... what is your last name?

Well my last name is Jewish (Cohen), but my whole family is Argentine (grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, etc.). And I'm "brown".
