Everyone knows that Indians and Chinese are overrepresented in B school applications and hence the admission rates are lower for them. But what about Asians who are neither Indian nor Chinese? Is admissions diffcult for them as well and are they overrepresented in the application pool?

No, Asian applicants are not all put in the same bucket from a demographic standpoint. The toughest applicant pool is Indian male engineers, and it's also tough if you are a finance applicant from China. If you are from another Asian country that is less represented that can actually be a good thing since it adds some diversity from a demographic standpoint. Keep in mind that demographics is just one small piece of the puzzle though. They are comparing you across lots of different filters: type of work experience, post-MBA goals, etc. and those are also places to show what you uniquely bring in terms of contributing to class mix. The other thing you can do to help control for the class mix variable is to apply to more schools. Our recommendation is 5-6 total. Hope that helps!
