What Ethnicity Should I Report in My Application?

What Ethnicity Should I Report in My Application?

Recently we received this question from an applicant who will apply to top-ten MBA programs this year:

I have a mixed heritage. My mother is Indian and my father is white. In my applications, should I list myself as white or Indian? My name doesn’t sound Indian… Will it hurt my chances if they figure out that I’m part Indian?
