Would I count as URM?

I am wondering if I am considered a URM. I am an Asian immigrant, of an indigenous ethnic minority in my home country. I've heard that Asians are typically not considered URM, and since the 509 does not specify on ethnicity and indigenous status for students (of groups outside of the Americas), I would assume this means I won't be considered by schools as URM. Does anyone with a background similar to mine have any experience on this in the admissions process? Thanks in advance!

Update: If anyone else was wondering also, based on the questions about ethnicity LSAC asked me (the region where I'm from wasn't even listed... so I just chose Asian Other and my other race), plus based on y'all's feedback, seems like no.
