Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There is no affirmative action in American colleges.

It's illegal in most respects. Quotas are as well.

Of course, you can signal your nationality on your application, and the university may take that into account, but it's a hidden process, and it's up to each university. Furthermore, a university does not have to use the official US government classifications.

It may decide to break down Latino and Hispanic students into a non-European ancestral category. I don't think there is a designation for Arabs at most universities.
