usually either not given preference over underrepresented minorities or blatantly disfavored during admissions to institutions of higher education in order to produce student bodies that are more demographically similar to the total population
E.G. most notably Asian-Americans and non-immigrant Caucasians in the United States
Dude, you are the Asian and are therefore an ORM; you are fucked for medical school, law school, and engineering/ science graduate school admissions. If you don't follow the overachieving stereotypes about Asians, you have no chance.
