Best Answer

It really depends on whether you are a recognized minority or not. The requirements for Blacks and Hispanics may be significantly different then those for Indians/Pakistanis, Orientals, or others. Although the case of Bakke vs Board of Regents has curbed the influence of affirmative action tremendously, race can and is still used as a factor for determining admissions into highly selective colleges. Still, no matter what color you are or what your national origin is it is important that you have a solid high school transcript with a good variety of difficult classes, an unweighted GPA of at least 3.5, SAT scores in the 2000+ range, and mix of extra-curricular activities. Don't assume that just because your a minority you can slack off in high school. In the end, remember that there are many minority students, both recognized and not, who are vying for a few very precious positions.
